Sample Dining Room Menu?

Recommended Posts

I am new to this board, as we are thinking of taking our first cruise later this year on RCCL!



 

I don't know much about how RCCl operates but was wondering if anyone had any sample menus of what's served on board? It would be most helpful!!

 

Also, do they have an 'elegany night'? I'm used to Carnival, so don't flame me if this is a stupid question! :P

Another question!

 

I know Carnival has some menu items that are 'classics' ..so they always have a chicken breast for your entree and warm chocolate melting cake for dessert.

 

Does RCCL have any of these? I'm not a seafood eater and noticed a lot of entrees that are or contain seafood!

they always have a grilled chicken breast, sirloin steak, some sort of grilled fish available as well as a Caesar salad (there was another item or two on the always available side of the menu as well, I just don't remember what they were). Vanilla, chocolate, and an ice cream of the day is always available as well as a sugar free ice cream and sorbet for dessert.

When are the 'traditional dining' times?

 

Main dining is usually 6:00 or 6:30 and late is usually 8:00 or 8:30 depending on the itinerary. My Time Dining, which is similar to Carnival's Your Time Dining, is from 6:00 until 9:30 PM

I have 2 questions I am hoping someone can answer!

 

I am a vegatarian. It seems like the options are either some type of mushroom dish or a curry most every night. Tell me that there might be more options! My husband is gonna be upset if I end up ordering off of the kid's menu or just getting a salad most nights.

 

Also - can anyone give me an idea of what is available in the Windjammer? I haven't been able to locate a menu or options available there. Do they have kid friendly foods there (for my kiddo's..not for me, I usually find tons of options if there is a buffet with veggies, etc)

 

Thank you!

I'm not a vegetarian ..but I mostly just each chicken! And no seafood, of course.. So I was looking at the menu quite like you were, lol

 

I would love answers to these questions, too!!

 

Also, speaking of tips.. Carnival automatically adds $50 a person at the end of the cruise for all of the staff, ect. Does RCCL do this, too?

When you first board, I suggest thet you go to the Dining Room and speak with the Head Waiter. Tell him that you are a vegetarian and ask if they can have more options for you nightly.

 

The Windjammer is just like any other large buffet. You will find a salad bar with all of the fixings & dressings, freshly cooked/steamed veggies, etc. There is no menu since the food items change daily.

 

As for the kids, burgers and sandwiches are usually always available.

I'm hoping nanfromatlanta is still around. What a wealth of information you've provided.

 

I know this is an old thread but was wondering about the availability of plain (undressed) fruit and vegetables. My gall bladder won't cope with the dishes swimming in oil, fat, cream and cheese.
