Many people already know that the food is included in your cruise with Royal Caribbean. The last cruise I was on was 12 years ago and I can still remember the food like it was yesterday!
Food options are abundant on the Allure of the Seas. Do you want to sit with only your family, enjoy the company of a large group or maybe you don't want to sit in the main dining room at all.
Here are some of the highlights I've found on the Allure of the Seas:
Main Dining Room:
Elegant and large, the main dining room is exquisite. Choices abound here and you can find rich delicious dishes as well as healthy options. If your traveling with children you can choose My Family Time dining and let the kids eat first then they are escorted to to Adventure Ocean Youth Program. Gone are the days of scheduling dining, with the My Time Dining option you can choose the time you will eat each day.
You can reserve your spot at a specialty restaurant before you even board the cruise ship. The restaurant food is still included in the price of your ticket, but seating is limited and reservations are encouraged. Alcoholic beverages are not included in the dinner but are available for an additional charge. (There may be a fee to reserve your table, I have not confirmed this as of yet).
Restaurants Available on the Allure of the Seas include: Chops Grill-Steak House,
Portofino- Mediterranean, Giovanni's Table, Solarium Bistro and 150 Central Park.
The Allure of the Seas is a Dreamworks inspired ship. You will find the Dreamworks characters visiting morning breakfast buffets and the main dining area.
Mystery Dinner Theater:
Enjoy a multi-course meal while you take part as the cast of a murder mystery. Diner is full of laughs and mystery.
Cupcake Decorating Classes:
Visit the cupcake shop and sign up for free cupcake decorating classes. Of course, you get to keep your masterpieces when you are done with them!
Other Dining Awesomeness:
Starbucks, do I need to say more? Well if caffeine is not your cup of tea, try the Solarium Bistro, where you a feast under the stars. Vini d'Italia for seasonal Italian food and wine. Try Cafe Promenade for a late night snack including pizza or even cappuccino. A family favorite, Johnny Rockets, where you can enjoy classic hamburgers and malts. For pizza lovers, try Sorrento's. The best breakfast buffet can be found at the Windjammer Cafe.
Let's not forget the joy of ordering a pizza and having it delivered directly to your stateroom! Or order 4 pizza, what the heck. A large menu of available foods is listed in your stateroom and can be ordered free of charge to your room.
Coffee, tea, milk, lemonade and punch are provided for FREE. As well as top water.
Are usually part of your responsibility. But now Royal Caribbean has beverage packages available to purchase before your cruise. Soda packages, bottled water and specialty juice packages are available. Beverage packages are $6/day for adults and $4/day for kids
And let's not forget about the unstoppable Ice Cream flow that is available in several locations throughout the Allure of the Seas. Yes you can grab a quick Ice Cream cone at any hour of the day or night! Yum!
As you can tell, the food choices on the Allure of the Seas are next to nothing you will find on the seas. This Childhood Cancer Cruise is going rock our belts right off!
