Taste of Alaska

Dive into exotic flavors.

Main Dining Room

Take your taste buds on a voyage of discovery. A Royal Caribbean cruise is rich in flavor and ambience with superb fare available in venues from bow to stern. But the dining experience is about so much more than just delicious food. It’s about the flexibility to have dinner whenever you like, and it’s about variety. Whether you’re hungry for an elaborate meal or a quick bite, you can find memorable selections at sophisticated specialty restaurants and casual venues throughout the day and well into the night. It’s like having access to a best-of collection from an entire city’s dining scene.

To satisfy the gamut of guests’ tastes, all Royal Caribbean menus strike a balance between modern and familiar fare. Palate pleasers abound at complimentary restaurants such as Windjammer Café, Park Café, and Boardwalk Dog House. If you’re in the mood for an authentic Italian meal that will transport you to the Tuscan coastline, Giovanni’s Table is the perfect choice. Got a yen for hot-rock cooking and sushi? Head to Izumi Japanese Cuisine. When a luscious steak is calling your name, visit Chops Grille.

What’s Included

A Royal Caribbean cruise means options—and you have plenty for every single meal during your stay, with an array of restaurants and cafés serving complimentary breakfast, lunch, dinner, and snacks around the ship.

As the centerpiece of the culinary program, the sophisticated dining room, complete with a signature grand staircase, serves three meals a day—all with a side of sweeping views of the Alaskan wilderness and impeccable, attentive service. Here in Alaska, salmon and other types of local fish and seafood are menu staples, but you can also savor succulent entrées such as rack of lamb and slow-roasted prime rib, along with new offerings like premium beef sliders and entrée dinner salads. The variety of heart-healthy, gluten-free, and lactose-free options has also increased—there are even guilt-free desserts like low-fat shortcakes and sugar-free key lime pies. The classics menu, available every night, features guest favorites such as escargot and linguine pomodoro. After all, they are classics for a reason.
