What dining options are offered onboard?


You’re going to need some serious energy food for all the activities and excursions on a Royal Caribbean cruise. And whether you’re hungering for a quick snack or an elegant dinner, we’ve got you covered!


Dining options vary from ship to ship, but here’s an idea of what you’ll find:



  • Enjoy a warm, full meal for breakfast and a multi-course feast for dinner in the Main Dining Room.

  • Options abound in the Windjammer Café – perfect for a quick lunch or a casual meal.

  • Our Specialty Restaurants – like Chops Grille or Portofino – offer amazing food in a restaurant atmosphere.

  • If you’ve got a sweet tooth, grab a scoop at Ben & Jerry’s or a creamy shake at Johnny Rockets – our lively onboard diner.


Meals from many onboard venues, such as the Main Dining Room and Windjammer Café, are included in the price of your cruise. There is a service charge per person to dine at the Portofino Restaurant, Chops Grille and Johnny Rockets. Prices are subject to change.


Can I make my Specialty Restaurant reservation online?


Yes, you can typically make reservations online up to 4 days before your cruise begins by going to www.royalcaribbean.com/specialtyrestaurants. Once you log in to make your reservation, we will be able to tell you the exact cut-off date for your sailing. If you are within the cut-off time, you will need to make your reservations onboard.

Are drink packages offered onboard?


We offer a soda package for both kids and adults on every ship in our fleet. To purchase one, just visit any of our onboard bars or lounges.

What type of special meals does Royal Caribbean offer?


We make every effort to accommodate our guests’ dietary requirements whenever possible. We can accommodate dietary needs such as:


Food allergies, Gluten-free, Kosher, Low-fat, and Low-sodium.


Vegetarian Meals (including Indian-style vegetarian) are available on all menus in the Dining Room and Windjammer Cafe every day. Guests do not need to make a special request for these meals.

Kosher for Passover meal requests MUST be received 90 days in advance in order to be accommodated.


Contact your travel agent or Certified Vacation Planner and request that the remark be noted in your reservation details. If you made your reservation online at royalcaribbean.com you may add your request to the “update personal information.” section. You may also send an e-mail request to special_needs@rccl.com; please include in the e-mail the guests’ names, booking number, ship name and sail date. E-mails will receive an automated response. We kindly ask that guests do not call Royal Caribbean International suppliers with specific questions.


Special meal requests that are received less than 45 days of sailing (90 days for European/South American itineraries) are dependent on the ship’s product availability. We will try to accommodate to the best of our ability.

Is Dynamic Dining being introduced to Oasis Class ships?


The scheduled introduction of dynamic dining on Majesty of the Seas and Allure of the Seas has been postponed until later in the year. Majesty of the Seas and Allure of the Seas’ guests will continue to enjoy the cruise line’s world-renowned GOLD Anchor Service and an expansive menu of delicious dinner options in early and late seating dining — as well as the flexible My Time Dining program — in the ships’ Main Dining Rooms, among up to 20 dining options aboard the world’s largest and most innovative cruise ships.

Is Dynamic Dining rolling out to additional ships?


As leaders in innovation, Royal Caribbean International is reimagining dining at sea with the launch of Dynamic Dining aboard the Quantum class of ships. This revolutionary program also will be introduced to the Oasis Class, the world’s largest and most innovative class of cruise ships, in late 2015. Dynamic Dining is a strategic initiative for Royal Caribbean and based on the positive response from our guests, it is our intention to implement this program across as many of our ships as possible, as part of our Royal Advantage program — our ongoing commitment to offer the best experience in the industry to our guests. At this time, there are no plans to implement Dynamic Dining on Freedom of the Seas during her upcoming dry dock due to certain limitations including time restrictions. We will continue to communicate any implementation of Dynamic Dining across the rest of the Royal Caribbean fleet as those decisions are made.

I'm sailing on Majesty of the Seas and Allure of the Seas in 2015 and I am already booked for the early/late seating in the Main Dining Room. What do I do?


Guests booked on Majesty of the Seas and Allure of the Seas will continue to dine in the Main Dining Room in accordance to their original reservation until the introduction of Dynamic Dining in late 2015. During this time guests will enjoy the cruise line’s world-renowned GOLD Anchor Service and an expansive menu of delicious dinner options in early and late seating dining — as well as the flexible My Time Dining program, among up to 20 dining options aboard the world’s largest and most innovative cruise ships.

If I am sailing on Majesty of the Seas in late 2015, can I make my Dynamic Dining reservations now?


Information on Dynamic Dining reservations for all restaurants will be available in late 2015.

Have any new restaurants been added to Majesty of the Seas?


Coastal Kitchen, Sabor Taqueria and Tequila Bar, Boardwalk Doghouse and updated versions of Chops Grille and Izumi have joined Giovanni’s Table, Solarium Bistro, and 150 Central Park onboard to Majesty of the Seas.
