Dynamic Dining On Royal Caribbean Quantum Class Ships

Have you cruised before?  

If so you are aware that there are several dining options onboard the cruise ship.  There is complimentary dining, allowing guests to eat in beautifully decorated dining rooms, buffet restaurant and at other eateries. 

There is also specialty dining, giving guests the opportunity to try a special cuisine on any given night in a less crowded venue.  This option comes with a cover charge.

Royal Caribbean’s Quantum Class of ships have changed the complimentary dining option that guests have had for years.

Here some things to note about this new and bold move by Royal Caribbean:

1. Previously, cruise guests chose early, late or anytime dining for one of two main dining rooms.  On the Quantum Class of ships, the 2 main dining rooms are replaced by 5 restaurants serving different cuisines.

2. All five restaurants are complimentary.

3. The 5 restaurants do not have special seating or fixed times for dinner.

4. The 5 restaurants have a kids’ menu.

5. One of the 5 restaurants requires formal wear each night for dinner.

6. Two of the 5 restaurants serve all 3 main meals, while three serve only dinner.

7. Guests can use a new reservation system to reserve seats for dinner.

8. Guests may visit a different restaurant each night.

Here’s a peek at the 5 restaurants:

1. The American Icon Grill – Serving American comfort dishes.

2.  CHIC Restaurant – Serving contemporary, exploratory and new dishes.

3.  The SILK Restaurant – Serving Asian cuisines – Chinese, Japanese, Thai, Vietnamese…

4.  The GRANDE Restaurant (always formal) – Serving European delicacies.

5.  The Coastal Kitchen Restaurant – Serving Mediterranean and Californian dishes.

Friend, this leap by Royal Caribbean is sure to amaze cruise enthusiasts of all ages.  Look out for Royal’s first newest ships in the Quantum Class – Quantum of the Seas (now off to China) and Anthem of the Seas

By the way, look out for the newest ship, Harmony of the Seas!

Buffet Dining Onboard the Crown Princess

Cruise ship dining comes with many options and such is the case on the beautiful Crown Princess.

One may choose to visit one’s assigned formal dining room for all three meals – breakfast, lunch and dinner.  One may request room service, which is complimentary.  One may visit a specialty restaurant for dinner – a steakhouse.  One may grab a bite from the grill or pizzeria.  One may even catch breakfast, lunch or a snack from the International Café, or one may go buffet style dining on the Crown Princess.

Here is the best part - except for specialty restaurants and probably minor charges at a cafe, your cruise ship dining options are covered by your cruise fare.  How cool is that?

Eat all you want!  

Now back to Crown Princess and buffet dining...

You will notice in the attached photo that the buffet restaurant is nicely decorated and furnished.  You may choose to have breakfast, lunch, tea (between lunch and dinner) and dinner in the Horizon Buffet Restaurant on the Lido Deck.  You are guaranteed no shortage of food and a wide variety from which to choose.

You will also be pleased with the service.  Many crew members wait around to serve you beverages, clear your table and help with any other requests.

The waitress you see in the photo was very kind to my family.  She even gave me a hug on the last morning of our Crown Princess cruise.

If you want to get away from the formal setting at any time during of the day, consider going buffet style dining onboard the Crown Princess.

Go have fun on the high seas!
