I wrote yesterday about the fact that I am not a huge fan of the buffet on Royal Caribbean. It was fine, I just don’t like huge crowds. While I have eaten lunch in Chops Steakhouse and at Giovanni’s, my preference is also to avoid paying extra for my lunch. Happily, the main dining room presents an excellent alternative.
Arriving for lunch, it is open seating with waiter service. I never saw a line at lunch or breakfast. A very large salad bar is available in the middle of the room (for lunch only). You can also order from the menu, which has several solid choices which are delivered quickly. It is only open on seas days (not embarkation day nor at any ports of call), but it is a great benefit on those days. It is a solid lunch option at no additional cost.
