The main dining room on Royal Caribbean ships is a classy restaurant with a smart casual dress code.
The food in the main dining room is included with the cost of your cruise holiday, so there is no additional fee unless you choose one of the premium options which will have the price displayed on the menu.
The menu is made up of a selection of appetizers, entrees, and desserts which provide you with a customizable three-course meal.
The menu rotates which means that you can eat in the main dining room for seven days in a row and never eat the same thing twice.
Each night you will have a choice of around 10 appetizers, 9 entrees, 3 premium options, and 9 or 10 desserts. We have listed some examples of the menu options that will be available on 2023 Royal Caribbean cruises.
