The garlic bread at Jamie's Italian, for sure. To quote my own post about it:  

It's all good! And yes, that's how I picked my moniker for this site. Best Baked Alaska I had was eating at the Captain's table on the SS Norway in 1985. It's one of those good old fashioned fifties t

I had a pork chop once in 2001 on Legend of the Seas that I could not cut through even with a steak knife. Fortunately, this is really the only time in cruising with RCL that I remember a truly bad/worst thing. Fortunately, the crew was very attentive and insisted that I order something else.

Olives with green saw dust?

 

I'm used to being a plebe and just getting sawdust and olive oil, so the olives were an upgrade.  Just kidding, Royal regularly outdoes itself on snacks so these are just a "Meh" rather than  "People thought I was in The Exorcist".

I think it was a form of fondant

 

Oh...oh god.

I thought these looked interesting enough to get a camera before the crowd finished the tray off.  Word must have passed quickly, 15 minutes later only a few were taken.

Yes, yes, I too prefer my olives be moldy.

It seemed like there was a parmesan and olive oil crust.  Or at least I wanted to believe that.  The good news was that they were served in the Diamond lounge during the alcohol buffet, so people could just as easily blame the sickness on the olives as on the drinks.

The first night in the lounge I wore a Barong Tagalog (Filipino formalware shirt) and was served by a Filipino bartender.  I ordered a Jack and Coke.  My legs didn't work well after the drink.  The next night I saw him pour me a triple without telling me.  I would have probably eaten the whole tray of olives that first night.  On the bright side I was able to hand hold 1/20 second still shots with a telephoto lens at the stage show later that night.

The Maryland style crab cake on Mariner was the worst for my husband and me. Full disclosure: my husband is from Maryland so he knows his way around good seafood (and I learned from him 😂). I read in a number of blog posts that the crab cakes were good so we were excited to try them. The crab cakes in the MDR should have been called breader cakes because there was hardly any crab in it, so we were disappointed. Luckily, we had the UDP and saw that Chops also had crab cakes on the menu so we decided to give it another shot. The crab cakes in Chops has less breader but it was pretty flavorless. At that point, we gave up on getting anymore crab cakes on the ship but all of the other food we had on Mariner was great! I’d definitely get the UDP again.

Chocolate molten cake arrived over baked and dry. 

I'm picky with what I order (don't eat meat or spicey things), but in general, I am not picky with quality (guess my standards aren't that high).  But I agree with this comment.  Chocolate molten lava cake should be warm and moist on the outside and then gooey thick "lava" in the inside...all a rich chocolate.  Chocolate molten lava cake is one of my favorite desserts...but I will say that the few times I've tried it, I agree.  It's dry and the inside isn't very liquidly.

Chops on the other hand does it perfect.

Asian Pork Tacos.  When I ordered it, I was hoping for something at least similar to "Moo Shu Pork" with the thin pancakes.  

When I saw this on the menu I figured that it would be bao, and it was. But calling it a fusion taco sounds better. I was appropriately whelmed by it.

I'm not a fan of the creme brulee on any Royal ship. I like it with berries, a little acidity to cut the sweet custard, and they serve it with a little cookie. It's usually my favorite dessert. 

We had something in the suite lounge on Liberty that had way too much turmeric  - somosas maybe. We skipped them when we saw them on Enchantment. They must have received an extra pallet of onions on our Enchantment cruise in February. I remember a lot more raw onions in some of the dishes that sailing.
