Main Dining Room

GOURMET COURSES

In the Main Dining Room, you can experience flavours that take you from Jamaica to Jaipur, a rotating menu of delicious dishes always offering something unexpected. A multi-level restaurant that in the morning is the perfect spot to enjoy a hearty brunch paired with refreshing mimosas, at dinnertime transforms into a world class dining experience with a menu that invites you to taste your way around the world course by course.

ATTIRE

Smart Casual

MENU HIGHLIGHTS

Many of the dishes on the Main Dining Room’s menu rotate each night, which means you could go an entire week without ever repeating a course. Every meal here begins with something delicious from the starters section of the menu — like savoury duck terrine layered with apricot chutney on toasted sourdough bread, a flaky Vidalia onion tart baked with whipped eggs, cream, and smoked bacon, or spiced eggplant and Kalamata olive tartare prepared with red pepper hummus and served on crispy garlic bread. Then, choose from international entrees like Moroccan spiced ahi tuna served over mint couscous, sautéed spinach and tequila peppers with a cool yogurt vinaigrette. Or mojo-marinated bone-in pork loin paired with sweet potatoes, broccoli and a cumin-citrus reduction. Dessert is also worth getting excited about, with options like sweet cream-soaked tres leches, home-style carrot cake with cream cheese frosting, and a light and fluffy Grand Marnier soufflé.

NOTE

Food offerings may differ by ship and sailing.

PRO TIP

The food in the Main Dining Room is complimentary, and you can order as many courses as you like.

RCI Johnny Rockets.jpeg

Johnny Rockets®

BOLD FLAVOURS, FLASHBACK VIBES

Johnny Rockets® has been serving up delicious American fare to diners around the world since 1986. Its menu features fresh, never frozen, made-to-order hamburgers, sides, shakes and desserts. No matter where you are onboard or in the world, you’re always surrounded by good food and simple pleasures at this retro hangout.

ATTIRE

Casual

MENU HIGHLIGHTS

If you’re dropping in with friends for a shareable snack, it doesn’t get better than a double order of Johnny Rockets® famous fries. Ask for them plain or go all out with cheese and bacon on top. As far as burgers go, you can’t go wrong with the Original, served with lettuce, tomatoes, chopped onions, pickles, mustard, relish and mayo. But there’s also the Smoke House, loaded with bacon, onion rings, cheddar cheese, and Smoke House BBQ ranch. And the Spicy Houston, flavoured with jalapeños, pepper jack cheese, and the house Smokin’ Chipotle Ranch sauce. All the milkshakes here are heavenly, of course, but we’re partial to the Oreo® Cookies & Cream version.

PRO TIP

If you want to mix and match two milkshake flavours, just ask the staff if they can make it happen..

Giovanni's Table

EAT MORE ITALIAN

Every meal at Giovanni’s Table is a family-style celebration of rustic Italian flavour. You’ll find all your favourite Old-World classics on the menu here, like house focaccia served with marinated artichokes, olives and pesto, fluffy gnocchi tossed in a thyme-scented sauce of lamb and root vegetables, traditional risotto finished with porcini and truffle mushroom tapenade and veal osso buco paired with creamy cheese polenta, ripe tomatoes and sautéed green beans.

HOW TO PURCHASE

Cruise Planner or Onboard

MENU HIGHLIGHTS

First things first – ask for an order of the house focaccia, which comes with marinated artichokes, olives and pesto. And don’t miss the antipasti per due, an appetiser big enough for two that comes heaped with Italian salami, prosciutto, marinated anchovies, grilled artichokes, Cambozola cheese and more. There are plenty of tasty options to choose from if you’re a pasta lover, from parpadelle with pancetta in a rich radicchio cream, to taglierini tossed with cherry tomatoes, calamari, bay scallops and pesto. And if you’re craving a hearty Italian-style main course, try the polpette alla romana — tender veal meatballs in a rich tomato-herb sauce — or the costolette d’agnello alle erbe — grilled lamb chops served in a Merlot reduction with baby vegetable caponata and sautéed spinach.

PRO TIP

Giovanni’s Table is a great restaurant to dial up date night. If you’re celebrating a special occasion, just let the staff know ahead of time. They’ll help make it extra special!

Chops Grille℠

CLASSIC AMERICAN STEAKHOUSE

For more than a decade, the chefs at Chops Grille have specialised in serving up quality, hand-cut meat. Dinner at this hallmark Royal Caribbean specialty restaurant goes far beyond the typical steakhouse experience, though, with reimagined classics like succulent Maine lobster, gruyere cheese tater tots, white truffle-scented mushroom soup, and of course, expertly prepared prime beef.

ATTIRE

Smart Casual

INSIDER TIP

Open for lunch on sea days only.

MENU HIGHLIGHTS

The best way to begin a meal at Chops Grille is with the charred beef carpaccio, sliced thin and served rare with fresh arugula, Parmesan cheese, and truffle mustard dressing. If you’re a seafood lover, upgrade your menu with one of the restaurant’s chilled seafood towers — each comes with jumbo shrimp, green-lipped mussels, clams, Jonah crab claws, and Maine lobster. As far as entrees go, the tender filet is one of the most popular items on the menu. If nine ounces is a bit too much for you, opt for the smaller 6-ounce petite filet — it packs in just as much flavour as the standard cut. If you’re a traditionalist, complement your meal with an order of steaming Yukon Gold mashed potatoes and creamed spinach, or change things up with Chops’ signature gruyere cheese tater tots and truffled French fries. And don’t forget to save room for a refreshing slice of tart key lime meringue pie or classic New York cheesecake, served with raspberries and lemon confit.

PRO TIP

The chefs at Chops Grille will hand cut, season, and grill each steak to your specifications. When in doubt, don’t be afraid to ask for the chef’s recommendation.

HOW TO RESERVE

Cruise Planner or Onboard

MENU HIGHLIGHTS

The best way to kick off your dining experience at Izumi Hibachi & Sushi is with a few appetisers from the main menu. The shrimp firecracker spring roll is a must-try if you like a little spice — sambal chilli brings the heat while cool cream cheese softens the bite. If you love sushi, you’ll have plenty of rolls to choose from. One of the most imaginative from the signature sushi list spotlights blanched lobster and avocado in a refreshing champagne sauce, all rolled up in a yuzu fruit wrap. And no visit is complete without some selections from the teppanyaki menu, which include chicken breast, beef tenderloin, sea scallops, lobster, NY steak, and tiger shrimp. Whether you opt for the classic or the premier combo teppanyaki experience, you’ll enjoy complimentary starters like vegetable fried rice and green salad with tangy ginger dressing, and your choice of mochi ice cream or crispy sesame balls with red bean and plum sauce for dessert.

PRO TIP

If you’re dining with someone else, mix and match between teppanyaki options and selections from the extensive sushi list. That way, you can each try a little bit of everything.

Fish & Ships℠

GOLDEN FRIED GOODNESS

Savour delicious fare at Fish & Ships℠, a seaside seafood spot that’s just steps from the pool. No need to hop across the pond for a basket of freshly battered cod and hand cut fries. You can get the British classic comfort food right here, plus crispy calamari, savoury battered sausage, and even a frosty pint of brew.

ATTIRE

Casual

MENU HIGHLIGHTS

The most famous item on the menu at Fish & Ships℠ is hands down the classic Fish & Chips — golden-battered cod fried to perfection and served with mushy peas, just like they do in the UK. Other standouts include the crispy fried calamari — a great option if you’re sharing with friends — and the hearty house lobster roll, served with a side of signature chips. If you’re craving something other than seafood, try the battered sausage — it’s as flavourful as it is filling. And make sure you save space in your tummy for a bite of the restaurant’s famous deep-fried candy bar.

PRO TIP

If you’re just fuelling up on your way to another onboard activity, no problem — ask for your meal to go.

Sorrento's Pizza

PIZZA WITH MORE PIZZAZZ

There’s nothing more satisfying than a great slice of pizza — and Royal Caribbean has spent years perfecting the recipe at Sorrento’s. Whether you’re into classics, like cheese and Margherita, or specialty pies, like the meat-loaded Carnivore or the pineapple, bacon and BBQ-infused Caribbean Dream, Sorrento’s serves up perfection in every slice.

ATTIRE

Casual

MENU HIGHLIGHTS

There’s no wrong way to do pizza at Sorrento’s — all the pies here are equally delicious. If you’re a traditionalist, go for a slice of classic cheese or Margherita, topped with sweet basil leaves. Want to spice things up? The pepperoni pie brings just the right amount of heat. If you’re craving something a little heartier, try the aptly-named Carnivore, which comes loaded with meat, or a slice of the sweet and smoky BBQ chicken pizza. For something totally out of the ordinary, don’t miss the Caribbean Dream. Sprinkled with bacon, pineapple and BBQ, every bite channels major island vibes.

PRO TIP

Sorrento’s is open late, which makes it one of the best spots for an after-hours bite.

ATTIRE

Casual

MENU HIGHLIGHTS

If you’re looking for a satisfying way to start your day, pair a cup of rich Royal Roast with a flaky croissandwich — stuffed with deli meats and crisp lettuce — or your favourite breakfast pastry. At lunchtime, it’s all about the flavourful chicken roti wrap and the New Orleans-style muffuletta, piled high with cold cuts and cheese.

Solarium Bar

SUN, SERENITY & SIPS

Relaxation can be thirsty work. While you're soaking up the vibe at the adults-only Solarium, grab a refreshment from the Solarium Bar, where friendly bartenders serve wine, beer, cocktails and chilled tropical drinks perfect for sipping beneath your poolside umbrella.

HOW TO PURCHASE

Beverage Package or A La Carte

NOTE

Images might not be accurate depictions of venue as each venue's appearance varies per ship

AGE RESTRICTION

21+ on sailings from North America, 18+ on sailings from South America, Europe, Asia, Australia and New Zealand.

MENU HIGHLIGHTS

The British Pimm’s Cup, the Aperol Spritz, and the Coca-Cola and Kahlua-infused Hennessy Black Bull are staples at Solarium Bar. But if you prefer to unwind with something a little different, opt for one of the premium mixed drinks on the menu. The Kentucky Burgundy is a favourite among bourbon lovers. Made with Maker’s Mark, crème de cassis, fresh lime and strawberry mix, it strikes the perfect balance between spirit-forward, sweet and citrusy. Or keep things simple with an iconic Rob Roy, which spotlights Dewar’s White shaken with sweet vermouth. And if you like your drinks sweet and sour, go for the Washington Apple, a tart blend of Crown Royal, sour apple liqueur, and cranberry juice.

PRO TIP

Don’t see your drink of choice on the menu? This is a full bar and the bartenders know their stuff — feel free to make a special drink request.

AGE RESTRICTION

MENU HIGHLIGHTS

If you’re in the mood for a glass of wine, you’ll be pleased to find the menu at the Suite Lounge covers most of the bases — sparkling, white zin, pinot grigio, merlot, cabernet sauvignon — you name it. If you’d rather unwind with a cold, refreshing beer, the Suite Lounge offers a great selection of domestic and international brews to choose from. The bar here is also well stocked with popular spirits like New Amsterdam vodka, Bacardi rum, Beefeater gin, Glenfiddich Scotch whisky, Jose Cuervo Gold tequila, and more. Sip your preference neat, on the rocks, or with your go-to juice or soda mixer.

RCI English Pub.jpeg

English Pub

PINTS AND POURS FOR EVERY SHORE

If you’re looking to grab a pint, this fleet-wide favourite is the spot. Pop-up musical performances keep the vibe here is as lively as London, and the pub’s impressive drink menu offers a sweeping selection of beers that range from ales to lagers, with UK-themed cocktails and an inspired collection of spirits.

HOW TO PURCHASE

Beverage Package or A La Carte

AGE RESTRICTION

21+ on sailings from North America, 18+ on sailings from South America, Europe, Asia, Australia and New Zealand.

MENU HIGHLIGHTS

The English Pub is best known for its wide and diverse selection of beers, but you can also order up a mean cocktail here. If you want something smooth yet strong, go for the James Bond Martini. It’s a powerhouse triad of Belvedere vodka, Beefeater gin, and Lillet Blanc. If you love bourbon, try the Buffalo Manhattan, which swaps out whiskey for Buffalo Trace with sweet vermouth and a splash of Angostura bitters. And if you’re having trouble deciding between spirits, order the Boston Iced Tea Party, made with Tanqueray gin, Bacardi Superior rum, Absolut vodka, triple sec, and sweet and sour mix. Want to try something really different? Ask for a beertini or cockt-ale —mixed drinks infused with brews to create one-of-a-kind libations you can savour slowly..

PRO TIP

If you’re new to the beer world, check the menu. Some include guides to help you navigate all the different beer styles and flavours.

Pool Bar

HYDRATE AT THE POOLSIDE BAR

You don’t have to stray too far from your comfy poolside lounger to enjoy a cool and creamy piña colada, a tropical Mai Tai, a glass of bubbly, or your favorite ice cold brew — just pull up a chair at the Pool Bar.

HOW TO PURCHASE

Beverage Package or A La Carte

AGE RESTRICTION

21+ on sailings from North America, 18+ on sailings from South America, Europe, Asia, Australia and New Zealand.

MENU HIGHLIGHTS

Whether your go-to spirit is vodka, gin, tequila, whiskey or rum, you’ll find something delicious to sip on at the Pool Bar. Tequila lovers should definitely try the Royal Citrus Ritatini, made with Avion Silver, Cointreau and fresh lime, or the Smokey Rita — a twist on the classic marg that spotlights Del Maguey Vida Blanco mezcal, triple sec, orange juice and margarita mix. If you’re more into whiskey or bourbon, opt for a classic Manhattan or a Rob Roy, both blended with just the right amount of sweet vermouth. And if you’re in the mood for something ginny, try the blood orange negroni — elevated with a small splash of blood orange, it’ll transport you straight to the storied bars of Florence, where this classic aperitif was born.

PRO TIP

If you don’t want to leave your lounger, an attendant can bring your order to you from the bar.
