      For work lunch hours, I developed the habit of picking locations and seats that have a window view. People-watching can be fun. smile

    Calm, serene, and ambient place with good food.

    Great food - AND great atmosphere - and friendly service - AND reasonable prices - if you can  find ALL that...then THAT is a great place to eat!  Some people think good food is all a restaurant needs, but I disagree.  I think eating out OVERALL should be a pleasant, relaxing, "get you out of your everyday life frame of mind" experience.  Therefore, something like The Rainforest Cafe, with it's over-the-top decor of a tropical forest  complete with animals and rain has the PERFECT atmosphere for making you feel like you're on a mini vacation...plus the coconut shrimp is to die for.  It is, however, a bit pricey.  Olive Garden, Red Lobster, and Chilis are usually all good choices for tasty food, pleasant environment, and friendly service..not too high priced...now I've made myself hungry...

    Home, with a loved one (or several).

    It can be the best food, created and shared by those closest to you. 

    Even better, it is straight out of the garden!

    Probably at home where you know exactly what you're eating.

    If you mean atmosphere etc., well, there are just so many choices. Personally, I go for dark and mysterious.

      Where you can't see the food.

        Well, candle light etc.

        Actually, there's a restaurant here where the servers are blind, and the dining area is kept in pitch blackness. The idea is that you experience the food without the sense of sight. I haven't been there yet, but I will go one day. The blind servers have to guide the sighted guests.

      We only serve snacks during round trips. But we have an excellent caterer for functions.

      I go around the ship taking orders for drinks and food - ice cream, cake, bockwurst, schnitzel, frikadelle, toasted sandwhiches. When the ship is full, it takes three of us to work through up to 300 guests on three decks within 40 minutes (served and cashed). One takes orders and cashes up (usually me), one brings the orders out and clears the tables, and one makes the orders and washes the glasses etc.

    how many round trips per day

    1. camlo profile image89
      camloposted 7 years agoin reply to this

      In good weather (like the last couple of days), six or seven. Most of the work takes place during the 40 minute journey up-stream. Then there's another 20 minute journey back down-stream, ten minutes to change guests, then it all starts over again.

        I'd want to be the one with microphone, pointing out places of interest.... do you get a good tan.

          A tan on my hands, forearms, face and the back on my neck. Looks terrible when I'm undressed.

          The captain has a microphone, but he only uses it to instruct guests on how to depart. The sight-seeing thing is done with a CD.

    how do you live there.....

      camloposted 7 years agoin reply to this

      I don't live on the ship. I have a flat in the centre of the city near the Rhine - ten minute walk from the cathedral where our ships are based. I live two minutes away from the chocolate museum where we also have a landing bridge, so one of the ships often gives me a lift home.

      I live on a ship when I'm at college in Duisburg between January and mid-April.

    I go for Ethnic food--Mediterranean, Middle Eastern, Spanish, Ethiopian...etc.   I prefer to go a quieter place...my life is noisy enough :-).

    Home.  I can cook anything I want, present it the way I like, season it to my own tastes and dine in my underwear without any one staring (or giving me the evil look)....  smile
