I look forward to dining at the steak house on every Princess cruise. This meal was no different. Great bargain, great flavors, great experience.
I am currently on another epic road trip, collecting photos & trying out new restaurants, so that I can report back to you fine folks. So, I'll be back in a couple of weeks with Day 5.
Until then, stay hungry my friends!
