6 Things You Should Never Order on a Cruise Ship

by Aaron Saunders | August 10, 2017

The Food: Shrimp Cocktail
The Place: The Buffet or Main Dining Room

Like the Baked Alaska, we wish the Shrimp Cocktail would quietly shuffle off to the pages of cruising history. Sure, it’s a staple of every cruise ship menu and, on luxury ships, the shrimp are typically gigantic and tasty. But on many big-ship cruises, the shrimp are frozen and disappointing. Instead, try one of the local specialties that reflect the destination you’re sailing in, or go for something you’ve never had. You never know — it could become a fast new favorite.
