Cruise ships trying to cut the gluttony and waste on the high seas

   Out to Sea for March 23/19

    Food, glorious food.
   When it comes to cruise vacations, gluttony on the high seas was often a measure of a good trip.
   From the moment of going aboard, cruisers race to the seemingly endless buffets, main dining room and 24-hour pizza, ice cream and room service – not to forget the accompanying tasty libations.
   A popular place on Carnival ships is Guy Fieri’s Burger Joint. (Barbara Fox photo)
    Cruisers steadily munch their way through “free food” (included with the price of the cruise).
   These floating feasts go on around the clock and now often include dining on your balcony with waiters serving each course.
   You can’t escape it: food is often a theme in shore excursions, too.
