MDR vs Windjammer

Recommended Posts

Does the windjammer have the same dinners that the MDR has for each day? Hardly go to windjamer for dinner. Do they have lobster, shrimp, and other MDR menu items? Thanks!

While Windjammer might have one or two of the MDR entrees, they normally do not have all of them. I've seen a few reports of lobster in WIndjammer on Oasis, but that is not the norm.

I would check the menu daily and if there’s a must have item go to the mdr that night

Except for lobster, I've seen most of the MDR items and many items not on MDR menu. Frankly, Windjammer dinners have been better than MDR lately and that's a worrying trend, IMO

Is it possible to see the MDR dinner menus for the entire cruise on the day of embarkation?

Yes, go to a specialty restaurabnt, they should have the MDR menus.

They are also listed on the in room tv under complementary dining, main dining room

My cruise isn’t until November, but I can already see my nightly MDR menus on the Royal Caribbean app.

Which app is it? On iPhone I’m only able to find their brochure app and Royal IQ which I have to wait until I’m onboard to see anything.

Only the newer Royal Caribbean app shows you ship info before you connect to the ship's WiFi.

Last cruise on Anthem due to our scheduled shows and what we wanted to see we never went to MDR. Windjammer was fine had steak, seafood, and plenty of other dinner options each night

Is info for all ships on the new app? We’re going on Anthem.

It is just an example in the app at this point - it will change about 20 days before cruise to be accurate.....:rolleyes:

There is also a note in the app explaning this!(y)

The Anthem uses the Royal IQ app which is not active until you get to the Anthem.

 

Here is something that you can do if you don't need to know in advance: Before dinner, pop up to the Windjammer, see what they have, and decide then if you want to eat there or in the MDR.

We were on the Allure 2 weeks ago an thought the Windjammer had a better selection of items than the MDR, while there was no lobster on the 2nd formal night in the Windjammer there was crayfish, calamari, and shrimp.

Okay, thanks for explaining this. The note in the app stating they were examples disappeared when the more detailed menus appeared, so I had thought that was significant. Apparently not.

I don't know if it was because Adventure just came out of drydock and wanted it to be special, but there was shrimp cocktail for the welcome lunch in the Windjammer. They also had the Ben and Jerrys ice cream. Only day they were there.

I'm on Oasis 11/4 with the fam and have not picked a seating time in MDR. Is it necessary and if it is, when/where do I sign up. We have a rez for Chops on the last night for our big splurge.

Nope, reservations are not necessary.  If you want to make reservations, visit the My Time desk at the entrance to the dining room.  The Cruise Compass will also list a phone extension for My Time dining reservations.

Do you happen to know how far in advance you can actually see things in the App, like sample menus? Is it like 90 days or something? Going on the new Symphony in 2019 so my app is currently empty and I can't look at anything. Thanks.
