The Real Food of Royal Caribbean😉


Recommended Posts

Tired of seeing the same old tired pics of suspect Royal Caribbean food disasters?

 

Pull up a chair as we take a trip down memory lane with some actual pictures of real RC food

 

Feel free to chime in, share your memories, and quote pics for effect

Sounds like a plan.  Are you starting things off?

First up, Empress of the Seas, summer 2019

 

Honestly, this looks better than it tastes.

Many folks think she had one of the nicest Chop's in the fleet. I would agree. Probably because it was the only game in town

 

Berkshire Pork Belly

Colossal Shrimp Cocktail

20190713_183844.thumb.jpg.829c93523004c57b4c63ae3deb5e200c.jpg

 

This might be the mushroom soup. The oil slick on top is probably truffle oil. Not a fan

20190713_183856.thumb.jpg.a00a4ae931defd99a885d2653223c968.jpg

 

Goat cheese salad is good, but I don't eat the goat cheese. Big fan of the craisins and apples20190713_183936.thumb.jpg.4fb4c4be3a2cc1efbea439bfa2bcef8e.jpg

 

MMMMMM, beef. Ribeye, I think.

20190713_211620.thumb.jpg.e7e9daa58debdf8d0a2c392d06ac1ff3.jpg

 

Who doesn't love lamb, so tasty with a little rosemary

20190713_211633.thumb.jpg.91e600fcb4ef7bc05436d40a9332ebf6.jpg

 

An attempt at a banana split. I'll have a more traditional one later

20190713_211547.thumb.jpg.79f1884ceada64a34c1ab2f2492e7c7a.jpg

 

Oddly enough, I don't see mac n cheese. I know we had it, I even met the chef who makes it during galley tour. 

 

Hopefully we'll find it on another ship. Pure awesomeness. SERRIOUSLY😉

Let's head up to the Jammer

 

I will say I rarely take pictures since it's generally busy, but I do snap a few at the table

 

Laura's chicken stir fry. Not very creative, pretty much just peppers and onions

20190717_121315.thumb.jpg.85f4d7c7eaad8016c726a6f6cd1c0ba0.jpg

 

John's beef stir fry. Apparently I'm less creative. Typically I head to salad bar and find more things to add. And no rice for some reason. Strange

20190716_121251.thumb.jpg.bf1b8bf50951a5501578b060b27a663c.jpg

 

Pizza anyone?  No pizzeria on Empress 😢

Decent for WJ, though

20190717_121332.thumb.jpg.b06de0b850adf6cab37106805c120e09.jpg

 

Grazing at the salad bar. Sometimes I just like to taste things since I eat and drink all day

You are seriously demented.  😄  These are two of the most delicious things at Chops. 😜

How about dinner with the Hotel Director. Always a good meal😊

 

Well, except for this version of the fabulous poblano corn soup. 

It tasted fine, I will say that for it

20190716_080224.thumb.jpg.53064047c78495403009bea7ee8dba67.jpg

 

Surf & Turf

20190716_080250.thumb.jpg.5eb7419650f33a0434cb46e51a828605.jpg

 

Dessert. Love the brittle bowls

20190716_080404.thumb.jpg.a226eb895a5360cd4312a92cb635d8d4.jpg

 

This always helps the conversations to flow.

Somehow it ended up back in our cabin. 😎

Prime Rib, nice and rare

20190719_183302.thumb.jpg.52d4ee93f9e8a528431cc1221514f74e.jpg

 

Apple purse pie is a big improvement over the slices they used to serve

20190715_150937.thumb.jpg.6d889dd740ef5a50b56b2b90a6d64be7.jpg

Made it back to Chops

20190722_193313.thumb.jpg.4386e479d9e42717ee35955a22b38724.jpg

 

Lovely filet, sorry that it's sideways

20190718_192838.thumb.jpg.f7dffe59c9a869d04f9ad6b1a0ff1b2b.jpg

 

Chimichurri sauce. Looks like I had lamb again

20190718_192835.thumb.jpg.ec584f5894d726116a06c00f9eb39f96.jpg

 

Look what I found. Mac n Cheese😁

20190718_192842.thumb.jpg.1995f25c8acd6ed8aa51355066f2f357.jpg

 

They also serve a nice breakfast for Suites, Pins, and D+

Lot's of omelets were ordered. Typically I do egg white. They're smaller

Beautiful venue, I'm sad I never got to sail her.

 

Caprese salad is always a favorite of mine.
