Lido Leads the Way on Getaway

Bucking convention as the quick and convenient but not always quality Lido buffet, lunchtime spreads in the deck 15 Garden Cafe provide a surprisingly nice variety of ethnic foods, with the Indian and Asian dishes being particularly tasty.  Other interesting and notable menu items include braised oxtail, okra stew, ground lamb kebabs, lemon chicken and quinoa salad, and a melange of asparagus, broccoli and baked brie.  Wait a minute – is this Norwegian Cruise Line?  Yep, and the upgrades even extend to the burger grill, which features patties with Hawaiian and bleu cheese toppings.   In addition to the always-busy, soft-serve ice cream dispensers, better quality hard ice cream is scooped at both lunch and dinner – at no extra charge.  And the made-to-order crepe station at dinner was an unexpected and delicious surprise!
