COMPLIMENTARY DINING – ALL GUESTS WELCOME
Dining Room – Decks 3, 4 & 5
The ship’s main dining room is open to all passengers.

Not only will the ambiance impress you, but Royal Caribbean offers impeccable, prompt, friendly and attentive service that will bring your experience to the next level. The staff will guide you through each dining experience starting with appetizers, soup and salads, main courses and of course ending with dessert.
The menu and options change from day to day featuring a mix of French, Italian and Contemporary dishes. The quality of cuisine is so high and the choice so extensive, you will feel like you are in a new restaurant each night.

Windjammer Café – Deck 11
If you head straight up to deck 11 from the main Dining Room, you will find the Windjammer Café. This is a more casual option than the main dining room and is open for breakfast, lunch and dinner.

Café Promenade – Deck 5
Sorrento’s Pizza – Deck 5
If you are looking for some hot and fresh out of the oven pizza, then Sorrento’s Pizza is the place for you. With many options to choose from (even gluten free options) you can’t go wrong. So in between dancing to your favorite song on the pool deck and your photo experience with your favorite band on board, grab a slice of pie and some delicious desserts. Bon Appétit!
SPECIALTY DINING OPTIONS – FEES APPLY
Royal Caribbean’s specialty dining options, although completely optional, are an incredible addition to your once in a lifetime vacation. Keep in mind, a surcharge applies to these restaurants and reservations are suggested as they generally fill up very quickly.
Izumi – Deck 4
By far the most popular reason cruisers visit Izumi is…the Sushi. Guests can order items a la carté and choose from a wide variety of sushi, sashimi, signature rolls, hand rolls and of course, chef’s signature rolls. These dishes are as beautiful as they are tasty and allow for an experience that is a feast for the senses.
If you are not a fan of fish…no problem. Izumi also features starters, salads, soups and even hot rocks – A fun and interactive dinner experience. Guests can order their choice of meat, seafood and vegetables and cook it at the table to their liking upon a slab of rock heated to 575 degrees. Just another way Izumi makes the dining experience something special!
Chops Grille – Deck 11
Enjoy a Warm Goat Cheese Salad or maybe Forest Mushroom Soup to start. Then, follow with an appetizer like Beef Carpaccio, Pan Roasted Jumbo Scallops or even the melt in your mouth Grilled Black Pepper Bacon, which is to die for. With steaks, seafood and poultry main courses coupled with incredible sides, you will be lucky if you have room for the indulgent Liquid Center Chocolate Cake or the Red Velvet Cake for dessert.
Trust us when we say, Chops Grille is a MUST for your Monsters of Rock Cruise experience. With the look, feel and service of a fine dining steak house, you won’t even blink at the small surcharge…this is an incredible meal from start to finish.
Fish and Ships – Deck 11
Located near the Pool Stage, Fish and Ships is an easy way to grab something quick from what RCI refers to as a “quintessential British seaside menu”. Enjoy delicious fried cod with a side of french fries. Perhaps calamari is your seafood of choice? No matter what you choose, don’t forget a nice cold pint of brew to wash it all down. With the look and feel of a cozy beachside restaurant, you won’t even blink an eye at the small a la carte prices.
Giovanni’s Table – Deck 11
