Dining

FROM DINNER TO DANCE FLOOR

Whether you’re craving authentic Italian eats at Giovanni’s℠ Table, Asian-inspired flavours at Izumi Hibachi & Sushi or steakhouse classics at Chops Grille℠ – with options like these, meal time is guaranteed to always be memorable. And after you’ve treated your taste buds, keep the party going with more than fifteen bars, clubs and lounges to choose from – all onboard Explorer of the Seas®.

FLAVOURFUL & FREE

Embark on a globe-trotting gourmet journey at Windjammer, where an ever-changing menu highlights cuisine from around the world at self-service stations. Savour courses that take you from Jamaica to Jaipur in the Main Dining Room. And indulge in deli-style sandwiches and Mediterranean-inspired anti-pasti at Café Promenade. The best part? It’s all included in your cruise fare.

A FAR EAST FEAST

For more than a decade, the chefs of Chops Grille℠ have proudly presented quality, hand-cut prime steaks at this hallmark Royal Caribbean restaurant.

Main Dining Room

Experience complimentary · Cuisine classic

GOURMET COURSES

In the Main Dining Room, you can experience flavours that take you from Jamaica to Jaipur, a rotating menu of delicious dishes always offering something unexpected. A multi-level restaurant that in the morning is the perfect spot to enjoy a hearty brunch paired with refreshing mimosas, at dinnertime transforms into a world class dining experience with a menu that invites you to taste your way around the world course by course.

ATTIRE

Smart Casual

MENU HIGHLIGHTS

Many of the dishes on the Main Dining Room’s menu rotate each night, which means you could go an entire week without ever repeating a course. Every meal here begins with something delicious from the starters section of the menu — like savoury duck terrine layered with apricot chutney on toasted sourdough bread, a flaky Vidalia onion tart baked with whipped eggs, cream, and smoked bacon, or spiced eggplant and Kalamata olive tartare prepared with red pepper hummus and served on crispy garlic bread. Then, choose from international entrees like Moroccan spiced ahi tuna served over mint couscous, sautéed spinach and tequila peppers with a cool yogurt vinaigrette. Or mojo-marinated bone-in pork loin paired with sweet potatoes, broccoli and a cumin-citrus reduction. Dessert is also worth getting excited about, with options like sweet cream-soaked tres leches, home-style carrot cake with cream cheese frosting, and a light and fluffy Grand Marnier soufflé.

NOTE

Food offerings may differ by ship and sailing.

PRO TIP

The food in the Main Dining Room is complimentary, and you can order as many courses as you like.

Johnny Rockets®

Experience cover · Cuisine american

BOLD FLAVOURS, FLASHBACK VIBES

Johnny Rockets® has been serving up delicious American fare to diners around the world since 1986. Its menu features fresh, never frozen, made-to-order hamburgers, sides, shakes and desserts. No matter where you are onboard or in the world, you’re always surrounded by good food and simple pleasures at this retro hangout.

ATTIRE

Casual

MENU HIGHLIGHTS

If you’re dropping in with friends for a shareable snack, it doesn’t get better than a double order of Johnny Rockets® famous fries. Ask for them plain or go all out with cheese and bacon on top. As far as burgers go, you can’t go wrong with the Original, served with lettuce, tomatoes, chopped onions, pickles, mustard, relish and mayo. But there’s also the Smoke House, loaded with bacon, onion rings, cheddar cheese, and Smoke House BBQ ranch. And the Spicy Houston, flavoured with jalapenos, pepper jack cheese, and the house Smokin’ Chipotle Ranch sauce. All the milkshakes here are heavenly, of course, but we’re partial to the Oreo® Cookies & Cream version.

PRO TIP

If you want to mix and match two milkshake flavours, just ask the staff if they can make it happen..

Windjammer

Experience complimentary · Cuisine buffet

TASTE YOUR WAY AROUND THE WORLD

The Windjammer is your go-to restaurant for tantalising global flavours served as complimentary. Like just-pressed paninis packed with all your favourite meats and cheeses. Flaky pastries fresh from the oven and omelettes however you like them. And hearty mains that run the gamut from crispy buttermilk fried chicken to Vietnamese braised Ho Chi Minh pork.

ATTIRE

Casual

MENU HIGHLIGHTS

Whatever kind of dish you’re in the mood for, you’ll find something tasty worth trying at the Windjammer. Pop in during the morning for scrambled egg Bhurji served with roti, or home-style crispy chicken and waffles. Refuel in between adventures with a refreshing watermelon and feta salad or classic fish and chips. Or sample your way from Italy to India with dishes like traditional chicken marsala, savoury pork vindaloo, tangy duck a l’Orange and flavourful Caribbean goat curry.

PRO TIP

There are plenty of gluten-free and vegetarian options offered.

RESTRICTIONS

Fully-covered shoes and shirts required.

NOTE

Food options may differ by sailing.

Giovanni's Table

Experience cover · Cuisine italian

EAT MORE ITALIAN

Every meal at Giovanni’s Table is a family-style celebration of rustic Italian flavour. You’ll find all your favourite Old-World classics on the menu here, like house focaccia served with marinated artichokes, olives and pesto, fluffy gnocchi tossed in a thyme-scented sauce of lamb and root vegetables, traditional risotto finished with porcini and truffle mushroom tapenade and veal osso buco paired with creamy cheese polenta, ripe tomatoes and sautéed green beans.

ATTIRE

Smart Casual

HOW TO PURCHASE

Cruise Planner or Onboard

MENU HIGHLIGHTS

First things first – ask for an order of the house focaccia, which comes with marinated artichokes, olives and pesto. And don’t miss the antipasti per due, an appetiser big enough for two that comes heaped with Italian salami, prosciutto, marinated anchovies, grilled artichokes, Cambozola cheese and more. There are plenty of tasty options to choose from if you’re a pasta lover, from parpadelle with pancetta in a rich radicchio cream, to taglierini tossed with cherry tomatoes, calamari, bay scallops and pesto. And if you’re craving a hearty Italian-style main course, try the polpette alla romana — tender veal meatballs in a rich tomato-herb sauce — or the costolette d’agnello alle erbe — grilled lamb chops served in a Merlot reduction with baby vegetable caponata and sautéed spinach.

PRO TIP

Giovanni’s Table is a great restaurant to dial up date night. If you’re celebrating a special occasion, just let the staff know ahead of time. They’ll help make it extra special!

Izumi Sushi & Hot Rocks

Experience cover · Cuisine japanese

ASIAN FLAVOUR THAT ROCKS

From expertly rolled sushi, fresh sashimi, and delicate nigiri, to izakaya-style appetisers and flavourful meats cooked perfectly on ishiyaki grilling stones — this hard-rocking spin on the fleet favourite Izumi is one specialty dining experience you don’t want to miss out on.

ATTIRE

Smart Casual

HOW TO PURCHASE

Cruise Planner or Onboard

MENU HIGHLIGHTS

At Izumi Sushi & Hot Rocks, every meal begins with a complimentary appetiser of edamame served with course kosher salt. Level up your meal with a deep-fried firecracker spring roll, filled with tender shrimp, crabmeat, cream cheese and sambal chilli. If you like spice, try the tuna wasabi carpaccio, sliced thin and paired with the house ponzu olive oil, wasabi aioli, masago smelt eggs, garlic chips and jalapeño. For sushi lovers, the Izumi spider roll is a must — it comes filled with tempura soft shell crab, creamy avocado, masago, and sweet unagi sauce. And of course, you can’t leave without trying something from the ishiyaki hot rock section of the menu. Go all out with the surf and turf experience — you’ll enjoy a half lobster tail, beef tenderloin, and assorted Asian vegetables served sizzling on a hot cooking stone and accompanied by white or fried rice and a selection of delicious homemade dipping sauces.

PRO TIP

Can’t decide what to order from the menu? Look for items with a symbol indicating the chef’s recommendations.

Chops Grille℠

Experience cover · Cuisine surf_turf

CLASSIC AMERICAN STEAKHOUSE

For more than a decade, the chefs at Chops Grille have specialised in serving up quality, hand-cut meat. Dinner at this hallmark Royal Caribbean specialty restaurant goes far beyond the typical steakhouse experience, though, with reimagined classics like succulent Maine lobster, gruyere cheese tater tots, white truffle-scented mushroom soup, and of course, expertly prepared prime beef.

ATTIRE

Smart Casual

INSIDER TIP

Open for lunch on sea days only.

MENU HIGHLIGHTS

The best way to begin a meal at Chops Grille is with the charred beef carpaccio, sliced thin and served rare with fresh arugula, Parmesan cheese, and truffle mustard dressing. If you’re a seafood lover, upgrade your menu with one of the restaurant’s chilled seafood towers — each comes with jumbo shrimp, green-lipped mussels, clams, Jonah crab claws, and Maine lobster. As far as entrees go, the tender filet is one of the most popular items on the menu. If nine ounces is a bit too much for you, opt for the smaller 6-ounce petite filet — it packs in just as much flavour as the standard cut. If you’re a traditionalist, complement your meal with an order of steaming Yukon Gold mashed potatoes and creamed spinach, or change things up with Chops’ signature gruyere cheese tater tots and truffled French fries. And don’t forget to save room for a refreshing slice of tart key lime meringue pie or classic New York cheesecake, served with raspberries and lemon confit.

PRO TIP

The chefs at Chops Grille will hand cut, season, and grill each steak to your specifications. When in doubt, don’t be afraid to ask for the chef’s recommendation.

Café Promenade

Experience cover · Cuisine cafe

CAFÉ ALL DAY

When it comes to quick and easy come-and-go eats, there’s no better place than Café Promenade. This casual, complimentary hotspot bustles 24 hours a day, so you can drop by any time — whether it’s for a steaming cup of coffee and a warm glazed cinnamon bun in the morning, or late-night bites like fried artichoke, spicy marinated cheese, and savoury meatballs from behind the counter after working up an appetite on the dance floor.

ATTIRE

Casual

MENU HIGHLIGHTS

If you’re looking for a satisfying way to start your day, pair a cup of rich Royal Roast with a flaky croissandwich — stuffed with deli meats and crisp lettuce — or your favourite breakfast pastry. At lunchtime, it’s all about the flavourful chicken roti wrap and the New Orleans-style muffuletta, piled high with cold cuts and cheese. If you love a good antipasti platter, try the prosciutto with melon combo, or the pesto-grilled tomato. And if you have a sweet tooth, the decadent Mudcakes, creamy Willy Wonka pies, and fluffy round Led Zeppoles will make you come back for seconds.

PRO TIP

Some sandwiches, antipasti and desserts rotate daily, so stop by often to see what’s new.

Chef's Table

Experience cover · Cuisine chef

AS VIP AND INTIMATE AS CAN BE

Welcome to Chef’s Table, the most exclusive and elevated dining experience on our fleet. Join an intimate group of fellow foodies on a private epicurean journey led by the ship’s Chef de Cuisine. You’ll sit down to a white tablecloth dinner spotlighting five exquisite courses that range from scallop carpaccio with yuzu vinaigrette, to grilled filet mignon served with truffle potato puree — each expertly paired with the perfect wine to highlight every flavour on the menu.

ATTIRE

Formal

NOTE

Available on select sailings.

MENU HIGHLIGHTS

Start your meal with the Scallop carpaccio, served with yuzu vinaigrette and crispy quinoa. Then transition to the Smoked tomato soup, sprinkled with garlic focaccia croutons and parmesan. Seafood lovers rave about the Maine lobster salad, flavoured with pineapple, cilantro, and vanilla dressing, and the Roasted branzino paired with grilled vegetables and lemon confit. Blending peanut butter ganache, Valrhona chocolate mousse, and salted caramel gelato, our signature dessert, The world, is the ultimate sweet ending.

PRO TIP

Each dish is paired with a somm-selected glass of premium red or white wine.

Room Service

Experience cover · Cuisine room

DELICIOUS DELIVERED TO YOUR DOOR

Want to savour a meal in the comfort of your stateroom? Order delicious in-room dining any time — day or night. Tuck into breakfast in bed with a fresh omelet or a steaming stack of pancakes. Or enjoy an intimate date night in after a long day of adventure onboard and ashore. Room service makes it easy to treat your taste buds without having to set foot outside your door.

NOTE

Room service menu may differ by sailing.

MENU HIGHLIGHTS

The continental breakfast items on the room service menu are complimentary, but you can also upgrade with fried eggs or an omelet if you want something a little heartier. You can even make brunch boozy with mimosas or the Ultimate Bloody Mary. If you’re ordering lunch or dinner, choose from flavourful finger foods like crispy chicken tenders, a melt-in-your-mouth grilled cheese sandwich, hot dogs your way, or the much-loved Royal Burger — it’s eight ounces of prime Wagyu beef topped with crispy bacon and aged cheddar on a toasted bun. The creamy classic tomato soup, grilled quesadilla, and fried chicken wings are also guest favourites..

PRO TIP

Cruising with kids? There’s a section on the menu just for them with simple but delicious sandwiches and tasty sides.


Entertainment

SO MUCH MORE TO EXPLORE

Your next holiday is about to get a whole lot wilder. Welcome onboard Explorer of the Seas® – a ship that offers as many thrills and ways to chill as the destinations it takes you to. Like laid-back lounging in the adults-only Solarium. Tee-offs with stunning sea views on the deckside Mini Golf green. Figure eights and double axels on the ice skating rink. And hang ten sessions on the fan-favourite FlowRider®.

SURF'S UP

Grab a board and get ready to ride – the 412-metre-long FlowRider® surf simulator is the ultimate hang-ten hangout. Carve the waves upright like a pro surfer or boogie-board on your stomach as 114,000 litres of rushing water keep you afloat. You can also cheer on your friends from the sidelines and get splashed after every wipeout.

ROCK THE RINK

After a day spent chasing new discoveries and soaking up the sun on the pool deck, lace up your skates and take your adventure to the chill zone at the onboard ice skating rink. Whether you’re a newbie or a skilled skater, all thrill-seekers are welcome on the ice.

JOIN THE POOL PARTY

Kick back and soak up the island vibes on the pool deck. Families will have a blast in the main pool, home to belly-flop competitions, movies under the stars and dance parties with a DJ. If you’re looking for some grown-up relaxation, head to the adults-only Solarium where it’s all about endless sea views and serenity.

KEEP ADVENTURE GOING AFTER HOURS

There’s no curfew for thrills onboard Explorer of the Seas®. Once the sun sets, start the night properly with classic cocktails at R Bar, pints and live performances at Crown & Kettle Pub, singalongs at Schooner Bar and salsa steps on the dance floor at Boleros.

VINTAGE VIBES & CLASSIC COCKTAILS

At R Bar, classic cocktails come with a healthy dose of nostalgia. Inspired by the swanky drinking dens of the ‘50s and ‘60s, this sleek and sophisticated lounge is the perfect spot to unwind with an old fashioned or a dry gin martini.

JOIN THE PUB

You’ll feel like you’ve been whisked away to London once you step inside the Crown & Kettle. Choose a brew from an impressive list that ranges from pilsners to porters, or indulge in your favourite spirit or UK-themed cocktail. Linger a while longer to catch one of the musicians who pop in regularly to perform.

Casino

BET ON BIG ACTION

There's nothing to stir your sense of excitement like the sound of cards being shuffled, chips being stacked and poker machines paying out. Consider the Casino Royale℠ to be your little slice of Vegas at sea – with thousands of square feet of lights, action, slots and tables.

RESTRICTIONS

18+

Royal Promenade

Located in the heart of the ship; 2 football pitches long and 4 decks high – the Royal Promenade is lined with boutiques, as well as 24-hour casual dining and drinking options.

Pool Bar

HYDRATE AT THE POOLSIDE BAR

MENU HIGHLIGHTS

Whether your go-to spirit is vodka, gin, tequila, whiskey or rum, you’ll find something delicious to sip on at the Pool Bar. Tequila lovers should definitely try the Royal Citrus Ritatini, made with Avion Silver, Cointreau and fresh lime, or the Smokey Rita — a twist on the classic marg that spotlights Del Maguey Vida Blanco mezcal, triple sec, orange juice and margarita mix. If you’re more into whiskey or bourbon, opt for a classic Manhattan or a Rob Roy, both blended with just the right amount of sweet vermouth. And if you’re in the mood for something ginny, try the blood orange negroni — elevated with a small splash of blood orange, it’ll transport you straight to the storied bars of Florence, where this classic aperitif was born.

PRO TIP

If you don’t want to leave your lounger, an attendant can bring your order to you from the bar.

Schooner Bar

LIVE MUSIC & MASTERFUL MIXING

Wrap up your night at Schooner Bar, where perfectly mixed cocktails and live entertainment come together in a warm-lit nautical-themed lounge. Cozy up in a seat under the mast, by the portholes, or right by the gleaming grand piano. The sing-along's about to being.

HOW TO PURCHASE

Beverage Package or A La Carte

AGE RESTRICTION

21+ on sailings from North America, 18+ on sailings from South America, Europe, Asia, Australia and New Zealand.

MENU HIGHLIGHTS

If you love a great old fashioned, you’ll find five versions of it on the menu at Schooner Bar, including a tropical twist that blends muddled cherries and pineapple with orange bitters and Malibu Coconut rum, and an innovative New Fashioned that brings in pink grapefruit, fresh raspberries, and a little bit of Southern Comfort. You can also dial up your night with a glamorous champagne cocktail, topped with Domaine Chandon and sweetened with an Angostura-doused sugar cube. Or sip your way across the Caribbean with a Zacapa rum-spiked daiquiri, shaken hard and double-strained, or a classic Papa Doble, prepared with Bacardi Superior rum, lychee and grapefruit juice. If you’re a fan of the Tom Collins, you’ll find that, too — plus four additional versions that each spotlight a different spirit.

PRO TIP

Up for something different? Let the bartender know what your favorite spirit is, and ask them to whip you up a surprise.

R Bar

SHAKING UP THE CLASSICS

Swanky, sophisticated, and suffused with retro style, R Bar serves up classic cocktails garnished with vintage vibes. Whether your drink of choice is a dry gin martini, an expertly mixed old fashioned, or the perfect gin and tonic, you’ll find plenty to savour here.

AGE RESTRICTION

21+ on sailings from North America, 18+ on sailings from South America, Europe, Asia, Australia and New Zealand.

MENU HIGHLIGHTS

The vintage décor at R Bar creates the perfect atmosphere to order a classic old fashioned or gimlet, but you should definitely also try one of the signature cocktails on the menu. Those who prefer their drinks on the fruity side will love the Purple Haze, made with Bacardi 8 rum, blue curacao and Pernod, and shaken with pineapple juice, passion fruit puree and a splash of grenadine. For a cocktail that doubles as dessert, opt for the aptly-named Red Velvet Cake, a decadent infusion of limoncello, dark chocolate liqueur, crème de cacao white and strawberry puree. If you’re craving something smooth, but strong, there’s the Green Goddess. It’s a potent blend of Belvedere vodka, Hennessy, blue curacao and mango puree, topped off with a twist of lemon. And for fans of fizzy drinks, it doesn’t get better than the Let’s Get Fizzical, a refreshingly light combination of passion fruit puree, apple juice and St-Germain elderflower liqueur topped with prosecco.

PRO TIP

The bartenders here are pros. Let them surprise you with something that’s not on the menu.
