Dining Venues Onboard Royal Caribbean Cruises


The Windjammer Café

The Windjammer Café, affectionately known as the buffet, is where many a cruiser will start and finish their holiday with Royal Caribbean. Often people will pop into the Windjammer for a light bite, while awaiting their luggage or for one last indulgence before they disembark. Offering 24 hour food including late night snacks, afternoon treats, brunch, lunch and informal dinner, this venue has it all and in a laid back style. The Windjammer is ideal for a post gym refuel or a casual dinner.

Main Dining Room

Dine at the same table and at the same time each night in the Main Dining Room with Royal Caribbean’s traditional dining. Or opt for My Time dining if you prefer to have flexible dining times and group sizes. Dine here for superb service and full-flavoured five course cuisine during your cruise.

Food to go

As well as the aforementioned Windjammer Café, Royal Caribbean boasts a fantastic selection of casual dining options throughout its fleet. If you have a sweet tooth then a trip to the Boardwalk Donut Shop, Cupcake Cupboard or Ben & Jerry's Ice Cream parlour are the choices for you. If you are looking for a quick savoury treat then head to the Boardwalk Dog House for hot dogs or Johnny Rockets for a burger and fries. With cafes galore serving a variety of deli foods, pizza, coffee and the odd glass of wine, you will be spoilt for choice whatever time of day. Depending on your class of ship you could pop into the open air Seaview Café, the Oasis Class Park Café for Paninis, crêpes and stir fires, or the Promenade Café to soak-up the buzz over a slice of pizza. Head to the Vitality Café for something a little healthier or the Jade Asian Restaurant for melt-in-the-mouth Asian cuisine before you check out the incredible selection of wine at Vintages.

Specialty Dining

Royal Caribbean has a superb selection of specialty restaurants that are available for a small cover charge. Find a variety of restaurants from steakhouse-style to grills, Italian cuisine, Mexican, bistro or gastronomic offerings. Chops Grill is a high-end grill offering filet mignon and mesquite-grilled salmon whilst the Samba Grill, with its gaucho cowboys, offers 13 different meat and seafood specialties. Head to Rita's Cantina for Mexican, Giovanni's Table for Italian or check out the Seafood Shack.

Flexible and Fixed Dining

Royal Caribbean offer a range of dining options to suit all needs. Flexible dining is available in the form of My Time Dining and gives you the chance to eat anytime between 6pm-9:30pm each night in the main restaurant. Just be sure to reserve your table to avoid disappointment.

Traditional Dining is also available and provides a set dining time for your whole holiday. Perfect for those who like routine or a classic style of cruise.
