Being from the south, I love grits with breakfast.  Can you find grits anywhere for breakfast on Royal Caribbean?

I can't promise you'll find grits onboard from every port, but cruising from Galveston, New Orleans, and on Carnival from Mobile, Alabama, we've found grits for breakfast on every sailing.

We've seen grits on many ships in many locations.  Just to name a few places,  Windjammer,  MDR,  ( both in the past year on Oasis, Enchantment, Brilliance, Majesty) Wipe out Cafe ( Oasis).    Can't recall room service, perhaps someone has a menu.

 Y'all Enjoy

I once had the pleasure of ordering grits in the MDR and receiving a combination of grits and cream of wheat.  I don’t think the cooks are familiar with either one and somehow emptied the two items into the same container.  And, no, I didn’t finish my breakfast!

I had grits every morning on Adventure of the Seas sailing from Puerto Rico last year. In the Windjammer.

I’ve always been able to find them in the WJ.

Ground up corn boiled into kind of a porridge.

I had the unfortunate experience of thinking the pot of grits in the Windjammer WERE cream of wheat!  I hate grits.

Grits were available daily in the MDR buffet and on the menu on Adventure out of Port Everglades.

But be careful.  I once ordered grits with my eggs and they came in a bowl sprinkled with cinnamon!!

I'm a southern girl, too.  They have them in the MDR on every ship I've been on listed under cereals.  They bring a huge bowl as an appetizer so you will need to tell them to bring a small bowl with your meal.  The buffets also have grits.

They don't know how to properly cook them so they may be a little thick.  Carnival is the only line that can cook them properly in my opinion.

They’ve always had them for breakfast in the MDR  but on our last cruise on Adventure 2 weeks ago, they only offered cheese grits.  Obviously not the same for grits lovers.  My DH just ordered oatmeal.  Cream of wheat was also not on the menu and it always had been in the past.

One of the joys for me of cruising.  Grits EVERY day.  YIPPEE !!  I would be throwing someone overboard if all they had was cheese grits. What an abomination.

On most ships we've been on you can also get them from room service too.

Grits.  That's what you call that pot of "stuff" next to the oatmeal in the Windjammer?  The only good grits I have had were in New Orleans.  Perhaps I am spoiled but I didn't think the white glop the texture of thick cream of wheat tasted anything like the grits I got in NOLA.

Had grits yesterday morning in the WJ on Oasis.  Have also had them in Coastal Kitchen, though they bring you way too big of a bowl of them.  I like them as a side dish...not a meal!  😮

Grits: Delicious

Cream of Wheat: Delicious

Mixed: No. Ma'am.

Delicious.  Grits are delicious.

 

Basically ground corn boiled in water.  Similar to polenta before it solidifies. Some people put sugar in it, others salt and pepper.  Traditionally, in my experience, those from the South use S&P, while sugar is a Northern thing.  Great as a breakfast item, but also savory later in the day.  Shrimp and Grits with Tasso Gravy is very popular in the Low Country of South Carolina and Georgia as a dinner entree.  One of the best dishes I've ever had was an app at Disney of all places...Pan Seared Sea Scallops with Blue Cheese Grits.  It's been a decade, and my mouth still waters.

I like to season grits with lots of salt and butter, then add a scoop of corned beef hash to the center.  Don’t stir it (it does not look appetizing once stirred), but get some of each on each spoonful.
