Where to start?
Royal Caribbean divides it's dining options into three.
The first is speciality dining, which is a great choice for a special occasion or celebrating with friends.
Stand-out speciality dining options include Giovanni’s Italian Kitchen, where guests can enjoy the freshest ingredients and be transported to one of Italy's buzzing squares.
Another must-try option is the Chef’s Table, where guests can be completely involved in the cooking process and learn something new along the way.
The second dining option is casual dining, so this includes grab-and-go options for quick bites that don't compromise of flavour or quality.
The last style of dining is to dine in. Guests can enjoy all their cruise favourites delivered to their door – think mimosas in bed.
There is plenty included with Royal Caribbean. Guests can rest easy as full-board with all meals included – so whether guests want to opt for the buffet, snack bar or a themed restaurant, they are all included (as long as they are not speciality dining).
Royal Caribbean is known for it's jaw-dropping entertainment, so it comes as no suprise that entertainment, including West End-style productions in the ships' theatres, parades, bars, live music and nightclubs, is included.
To keep up any fitness regimes, the fitness centre is included in the price.
Of course, the amazing activities onboard are all included – so whether the massive waterslide, is on the top of passengers to-do list, they can rest easy knowing it's included.
