As a mid-priced cruise line, Royal Caribbean appeals to a broad range of passengers: singles, Baby Boomers, honeymoon couples, young families, and active seniors. As a result, their cuisine – though not “gourmet” by any standard – is varied and consistently good. With the addition of alternative (read: extra cost) restaurants and the upgrade of the Windjammer Café offerings, the variety is broader than ever before.

Minstrel Dining Room

Make your entrance
A grand entrance it will be as you enter this beautiful, two-level dining room. The room is open, spacious, and handsomely decorated, with excellent views out to sea. Service is prompt, friendly, and efficient…never pompous or stiff. So, despite your elegant surroundings, dining in the Minstrel Dining Room will feel comfortable – even when you’re decked out on Formal Night in that tight-fitting evening dress or starched collar and tux!

Chops Grill

Claim your steak
Chops Grill is one of two “reservation only” restaurants onboard. The atmosphere is upscale but not stuffy – the perfect place for a juicy, mouth-watering steak. As with the Portofino Restaurant, there’s an additional $20 per person fee to dine here.


Make it special
Set aside at least one night of your cruise for dinner in one of the Brilliance of the Seas alternative restaurants. Portofino, not surprisingly, serves Italian fare. As one of the two main, alternative dining rooms aboard, there’s an additional $20 fee.

Windjammer Café

Food Court par excellence
Indoors or out, the Windjammer Café offers a casual dining venue especially popular with those on the go. At night, the atmosphere slides up a notch or two but the mood is still easy going.

Seaview Café

A room with a view
Think of Deck 12 as the place to burn calories. (The gym, sports court, and golf simulators are here, and the rock climbing wall and putting green are nearby on Deck 13.) But you can think of Deck 12 as the place to consume calories, too, thanks to the all-American fare available at the Seaview Café.

Midnight Delight

Turn a dilemma into a delight
Though the Brilliance offers a terrific Midnight Buffet, there are times that you don’t feel like making the trek to the buffet (say, for instance, you’ve been feeding a certain slot machine since 9:30 pm!). Not to worry – the Midnight Delight snack service is on wheels. Let it come to you!

Room Service

Hello, Room Service?
There are two important things to remember about Room Service aboard Royal Caribbean: it’s available around the clock, and it’s free.
