One thing I can dispell — the notion that cruise food is universally bad. This isn't the case — at least not for my sojourn aboard the Carnival Triumph. I was actually quite pleased with most of the selections I encountered in the formal dining rooms aboard ship.
As you probably expect from me by now, I took pictures. Lots of pictures. So if you've ever been curious to see what sort of food is offered aboard a cruise ship, you're welcome to take a peek at Tie Dye Travels.
