I am one of those people who plans restaurant meals way in advance. I like to know what I am getting. When booking a cruise, that helps me determine if I am selecting the right trip. We sailed with Royal Caribbean earlier this month. I wanted to share the Royal Caribbean main dining room menu with you in case you like to plan in advance as I do!
- MDR Menu Night 1
- MDR Menu Night 2 (first formal night)
- MDR Menu Night 3
- MDR Menu Night 4
- MDR Menu Night 5
- MDR Menu Night 6 (Lobster night)
- MDR Menu Night 7
- MDR Wine Menu (same each night)
- MDR Kid’s Menu (same each night; kids can order from adult menu)
- MDR Lunch Menu Day 7 (changes each sea day)
- MDR Breakfast Menu (same each day)
I made several general observations. First, Royal Caribbean has significantly improved their vegetarian options since my 2017 cruise. I certainly enjoy meat, but it was nice to have the option. In addition, the Royal Caribbean main dining room menu always included at least one fish dish.
Secondly, the free steaks in the main dining room were quite good. My kids had one several nights. As a concerned father, I had to sample them. The steaks were legitimately good. Surprisingly, the spaghetti was also always cooked to an appropriate al dente.
What about other meals in the MDR?
Finally, the MDR was an excellent location for breakfast and lunch. The breakfast menu was the same every day. However, it was broad enough to have plenty of variety. The MDR only served lunch on sea days, although the menu changed each time. The lunch service included an excellent salad bar. Stayed tuned for menus from the specialty restaurants over the next few days. Happy eating!
