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 you can opt for 'My Time Dining' if you prefer to have flexible 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-fries, 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 Izumi Japanese Restaurant for melt-in-the-mouth sushi, before you check out the incredible selection of wine at Vintages.

    What our customers say

    "I booked a Fred Olsen cruise with IGLU last month and was so impressed by the service I received. The staff member I spoke to was Kimberley and she was exemplary. Capable, kind, professional, patient, friendly and knowledgeable. She went through every step of the way calmly and thoroughly. IGLU were recommended to me by friends and I have no hesitation in passing the recommendation along. Well done IGLU and thank you. "

    "So easy to deal with, I studied the Cruise I wanted, did my research with different company's and returned to Iglu. I had three quotes matching Iglu’s cost, but with one phone call they beat the price themselves by £40 without me even asking, how easy was that! "
