Welcome onboard. Please have a fresh grilled lobster tail.

On cruise holidays, the first day is usually the most fraught. Leaving home, heading to the ship (whether it’s via an overnight flight or a few-hours drive, still…stressful), queuing up to board, adjusting to new digs, unpacking when your suitcase finally arrives, and finding your way to the safety drill.

For a lot of us, pretty much the last thing in the world we want after all that is to sit down to a formal dinner. Right?

While all of the usual Rotterdam venues were open last night, from the main restaurant to its Pinnacle Grill alternative eatery, this option – an open-deck BBQ – was a fantastic alternative. It’s a terrific choice for anyone who wanted a quick meal (including salads and desserts) and there was no compromise on quality. Over charcoal grills, smells were heavenly. Beyond steaks and fish, notice the lobster tails? That’s pretty nice….

    they had a BQ on our Alaska cruise last week on the Oosterdam. It was nice to have this at sail away. You can enjoy the open deck and leaving port. Really enjoyed it

  2. Lucky girl!!! We went a week ahead and had unluck. Due to bad organisation of the charter cruise operator everything was delayed. Vista Dining Room closed before the first guest was onboard. Everything was running a little bit chaotic because the guests got so late from the ship. I should have gone to the open decks but it was too cold and rainy when we arrived to see the open deck. Hope you had a good time.
