Nope. Filet is medium rare only. But filet is also super-lean and not an exercise in working the jaw muscles to death at that cook.

Same with hamburgers; medium-rare, thanks. My wife and MIL, on the other hand, are lifetime members of the “hockey puck” club. 😏

Me too.  I blame it on my son as I as pregnant with him when I joined the club.  Ya know that burger that's been on the grill since the party started?  Yeah, yeah that charcoal briquette.  That's mine!!!  Hubby knows if it doesn't crunch, it isn't ready!!  Only burgers though, medium for my steaks and chewy but not raw bacon.  Some of the stuff I've seen at WJ breakfast looks like its never actually been on the grill!!!!

We can never be friends. Bacon is supposed to be soft and chewy! Extra crispy is a fried chicken option.

For me the Windjammer is like going to Walmart.  Sometimes its a necessity but you really don't enjoy the experience lol 

As I started cruising multiple times per month and spending over 100 nights at sea per year several years in a row I stopped visiting the MDR.  I've gone months and only ate in the WJ, three meals per

I certainly love it and don't think I will be cruising again until they bring the buffet back. It would also be the time when it's safer to travel and these restrictions are lifted.

Cruising is all about the freedom and relaxation of a vacation, which other dining options don't provide. I tried specialty/main dining once but didn't feel like it. I like to feel free and relaxed with what I wear and how I eat all my meals.

And by the way, I don't like those who fill mountains of food in their plates and throw half of it. I actually do the opposite, I fill many smaller plates and I keep moving around between my table and the buffet to stay active while eating. I would rather waste water and dish washing than wasting food.

#what-a-waste-of-perfectly-good-pork

Next you'll tell me you order your filet mignon "very well done" then send it back to be "cooked just a little bit more."

As a fellow North Carolinian, you should agree that there are parts of pork just seem better crispy....bacon, pork rinds. Dip pork rinds in pimento cheese and you have a good snack!

not a WJ fan ... too many people.

I dont eat a lot for brekkie, as I feel weighted down.  I don't like navigating the crowds, & waiting in line for maybe just 1 or 2 items.  I can grab those easier in the diamond lounge and its quieter, too.  we've been doing similar at Cafe promenade & I love those early mornings when you seem to have the whole ship to yourself.  I dont like to spoil that quiet with a noisy WJ. 

for lunch, its usually Cafe promenade or another small eatery like solarium bistro or something by the pool that's informal. I do like popping into the WJ for a burger though, if you can dodge the crowds.  for dinner, it's MDR every time.  i like the formality and flow of the MDR, and we usually don't have a problem coordinating other evening activities despite the 90 minutes or so you need to allocate for the MDR.

that said, WJ is definitely an institution, and hopefully it remains in some form or fashion.  part of what makes cruising great is that there is something for everyone, and WJ is a big part of that.  

crispy bacon for this guy 😎

Pimento cheese is an aberration that should be banished along with "barbecue sauce" based on vinegar or mustard.

No, I'm not a native of the Tar Heel State - and I find much of the "cuisine" to be curious at best.

Well, maybe not so fast... RC will be changing the Windjammer, but possibly not as dramatic as we all are assuming!

Maybe limited seating and crew members to serve you?

We'll see!

Fain indicated that “some of the press” were suggesting the buffet would “go from one thing that we’ve had for decades and suddenly morph into something very different.”

Continuing the discussion about buffets, the exec said that when it came to venues where “everybody reaches in and everybody touches the same tongs,” that was something “you’re not going to see on land or sea.”

However, he added, “it doesn’t mean that you don’t have a buffet. You might have it where all of that is served to you by other people.  And there [are] other possibilities. But the point is that it will evolve.”

Ha! Not a native....that explains it. 🙂 I agree about the mustard sauce....yuck.

Love the desert area 😀

I have to admit on the days when all of the different cakes are displayed, they simply look fantastic. I always take pictures and/or film them. But is it me, or has anyone else noticed that those awesome looking cakes look better then they taste.

100%. Generally, no flavor at all.  Huge disappointment

I tend to agree, and at times I’m not sure what some of the items are, but they sure look tasty.

While we don't really enjoy the buffets, the one best thing I can suggest to anyone is to always use a knife, fork and spoon to eat...don't eat anything with your fingers unless you wash your hands after bringing your plate to the table.

Our sail away cake on Mariner in February was DELISH!!!  More than my share was probably consumed.🤭
