Dinner on the ocean is always the way to dine. Now dinner in the middle of the ocean on board the largest cruise ship in the world is the best way to dine. Choose from 17 dining venues six of which are included in your cruise fare!
Complimentary dining options for dinner:
Main Dining Room: The traditional way of dining is still the main dining room. Leave the tux and gowns at home because it's 2017 and dress is up to your discretion as long as you follow the very open dress code policy. In the main dining room, you can enjoy a new menu every night, three courses at minimum and of course unlimited food.
Mini Bites:Choose from hot dogs, hamburgers, french fries, roasted potatoes, taco night and so much more! Mini Bites is a great option for those cruisers who simply cannot get enough of the activities on board and want a quick bite to eat and head right back over to the flow rider, basketball court, mini golf course, or zip line which are just a few feet away.
Sorrentos: Grab a slice of delicious pizza if you are running to a comedy show or listening to some jazz!
Boardwalk Doghouse: Enjoy a quick customized hot dog before heading over to one of the incredible Aqua shows!
Windjammer Marketplace: Royal Caribbean's famous buffet open 19 hours a day offering all types of international cuisine. Stop here for a quick dinner before heading to a show or before a big night out on board the Harmony.
Park Cafe: Similar to lunch indulge in some light cuisine at the park cafe while dining alfresco! Who doesn't like dining alfresco in the middle of the ocean surrounded by 12,000 different species of plants?
The newest grievance amongst long time cruisers is the specialty dining restaurants being offered on board most ships now. Gone are the days where every restaurant on board is included in your cruise fare. However, thank the cruising gods for the mouthwatering goodness of these restaurants.
Sabor Taqueria and Tequila Bar: Located on the boardwalk, indulge in traditional Mexican cuisine, incredible margaritas (go for the Avocado Margarita) and watch guacamole made right before your eyes!
Izumi Japanese Cuisine
Enjoy hibachi and sushi in this famous Royal Caribbean specialty restaurant!
Would I suggest:
Yes. Izumi has successfully made its way on to almost every Royal Caribbean ship and is one of the longest running specialty restaurants for the line.
Johnny Rockets The traditional 1950's dinner located on the boardwalk is the perfect place to grab a burger, french fries, and a chocolate milkshake! Would I suggest: No. Instead of spending extra money on a chain restaurant that can be found almost everywhere go for something better.
150 Central Park An upscale steakhouse located in central park. Indulge in aged steak, seared fish, and chicken of all sorts. Would I suggest: No. This restaurant is more eye catching rather than anything else; it's upscale design and impeccable service excites you for a mediocre meal. Skip this and head to Chops Grille!
Jamie's Italian Enjoy authentic Italian cuisine in central park with a menu designed by the incredible Jamie Oliver Would I suggest: Yes. Jamie's is well worth the $30 per person when enjoying handmade pasta, hand selected cheese plates while dining in a retro Italian atmosphere!!
Coastal Kitchen Enjoy this light eatery while enjoying 90-degree views of the ocean from the very top of the ship! Would I suggest: Yes. Coastal Kitchen offers culinary flair that adds to the magic of the Caribbean.
Wonderland Royal Caribbean takes culinary to a new level with Wonderland Imaginative cuisine. Here you will find menus in picture frames that appear before your eyes, cuisine that pushes your taste buds to the max. Dinner and a show is an understatement when it comes to Wonderland. Would I suggest: 1000 times Yes. If you do not dine at Wonderland you are missing out on one of the most magical dining experiences of your life; I would spend all my money in this restaurant.
Chops Grille Royal Caribbean's famous steakhouse. Chops Grille offers incredible aged meats in an upscale atmosphere. Would I suggest: Yes. Chops is one of Royal's longest running Specialty restaurants and is well worth the extra money.
Solarium Bistro Clean and healthy eating is the only option when dining in the solarium and take in breath taking view as you look out over 180 degrees around the bow of the ship Would I suggest: Yes. This is the perfect restaurant to discover that healthy eating can be even more delicious than that deep fried goodness we all love.
As you now know the dining options on board the largest cruise ship in the world are extensive. Whether you want to splurge and eat at a specialty restaurant every night or you want to only dine in the complimentary restaurants, you will not be disappointed on board Harmony of the Seas!
