A new class of ship brings an all new class of dining on Royal Caribbean

 With the two new additions to the Royal Caribbean fleet, the Anthem and the Quantum of the seas, Royal Caribbean have a new approach to dining on board of both ships. Moving on from the traditional set dining times in the main dining room that you would usually find on a cruise, Dynamic Dining gives passengers the option to dine where and whenever they want. With over 15 places to choose from, you can be sure to find something for everyone when dining on Royal Caribbean

Each dining venue has its individual dress code which could be either; Casual, Smart Casual or Formal.

With the launch of the new ship; Quantum of the Seas, from Royal Caribbean. I thought it would be a great time to blog about my cruises and experience with them.

Freedom of the Seas was the first ship from Royal Caribbean Cruise Line in which I sailed on. I cruised the Caribbean for 7 nights from Port Canaveral, Florida. Having previously been on two cruises with another cruise line prior to this, I was sure I knew what cruising had to offer – how wrong I was! Activities, food, drink, service and FUN was on tap everyday and I instantly fell in love with the ship AND the cruise line. I took an Ocean View Balcony stateroom for this sailing which was lovely. To date, I have been on the freedom of the seas 5 times in total

The Allure of the Seas

After sailing on other Royal Caribbean ships, I thought I would try the ship known as the largest in the world The Allure of the Seas. I spent 7 nights on board whilst cruising the Caribbean out of Fort Lauderdale and WOW…….. I couldn’t fault the ship, staff or service in anyway. From the moment I arrived at the port everything ran like clockwork and I cannot complain about anything at all.

With 5,000+ guest capacity on board, I was surprised to find the embarkation process the quickest and easiest I have ever experienced with any cruise ship. after entering the terminal, we were checked in and on board well within 30 minutes.

Welcome to day two of my cruise on the Anthem of the Seas.  As I discover the wealth of entertainment on offer during my voyage.

Be prepared for Royal Caribbean to entertain you! Featuring the long – running Queen musical tribute We Will Rock You, will play host as the main show on board Anthem of the Seas, giving guests the opportunity to mingle with the talented cast at the after – show party…
