No travel vacation is complete without great food, and Royal Caribbean always delivers on that front. No matter which cruise ship you choose to vacation on, you can always look forward to delicious dining that spotlights flavors from all corners of the globe, from Asian-inspired eats and authentic Italian cuisine, to casual grab-and-go goodness or even an elevated culinary adventure with five-star, white-tablecloth service.

This is especially true onboard Voyager of the Seas, a family-favorite cruise ship that’s been Amplified with even more mouthwatering dining options kids and parents will love. There’s the iconic Windjammer, offering expertly prepared cuisine from around the world for breakfast and lunch, perfection served by the slice at the always lively Sorrento’s Pizza, classic steakhouse vibes at Chops GrilleSM, and so much more. Keep reading for an insider’s guide to the best cruise food onboard Voyager of the Seas.


A staple on most Royal Caribbean ships — including the Amplified Voyager of the SeasWindjammer offers something for even the pickiest eaters. Drop by during the morning and start your day with global takes on breakfast classics, like scrambled egg Bhurji served with oven-warm roti, southern-style fried chicken and fragrant waffles, fresh fruit parfaits and fluffy pancakes. Or refuel in between onboard experiences with cuisine from a diverse tapestry of countries, like Greek-style feta salad, authentic chicken marsala, Vietnamese braised Ho Chi Minh pork, savory pork vindaloo, or crispy golden fish and chips that will transport you to the pubs of the British Isles. You’ll also find plenty of gluten-free and vegetarian options at this casual, complimentary cruise restaurant. 

Café Promenade

If you’re looking for quick, easy and delicious eats on the go, you’ll want to visit Café Promenade during your next cruise onboard Voyager of the Seas. The ship’s only 24/7 restaurant, it serves up hits-the-spot snacks, sandwiches, sweets and more all day, every day. Come by in the morning for a steaming hot cup of tea or coffee and a rotating selection of decadent pastries sure to satisfy your sweet tooth. Or pop in a little later for savory meatballs and spicy marinated cheese, New Orleans-style muffulettas and mouthwatering paninis stuffed with deli meats and still hot from the press. If you find yourself craving antipasti, chicken roti wraps or rich Mud Pies late at night, make a pit stop here before you turn in for the evening. Like Windjammer, all the food and drinks at Cafe Promenade are complimentary to cruise guests.

Sorrento’s Pizza

Another top cruise dining option onboard the Amplified Voyager of the Seas is Sorrento’s Pizza. Hands-down one of the best complimentary restaurants to eat at during a cruise, this casual pizzeria serves up oh-so-satisfying slices prepared with all your favorite fixings — from juicy pineapple and crispy bacon to fresh mozzarella and basil. Opt for a classic cheese, pepperoni or Margherita pie. You can also go bold with the meat-heaped Carnivore or sweet and savory Caribbean dream. Try as many different kinds of pizza as you like during your cruise vacation — the food at Sorrento’s is free. What’s more, this popular dining spot is open late, making it the perfect place to refuel after a night spent dancing under the stars on the pool deck. 

Giovanni’s TableSM

One of the best cruise restaurants onboard the Amplified Voyager of the Seas, Giovanni’s Table will transport your taste buds to Italy no matter where in the world you’re sailing. This smart-casual specialty restaurant is a great place to dial up date night with your special someone, elevate family dinner with the kids or savor an authentic, Italian-style lunch. The menu spotlights classics like aromatic house focaccia paired with marinated olives and artichokes, pillowy gnocchi tossed in a hearty lamb-and-thyme sauce and an antipasto that comes heaped with enough Italian meats and cheeses for two to share. That’s in addition to perfectly cooked pastas like pappardelle with pancetta and taglierini tossed with seafood, as well as rich entrees like veal osso buco and truffle-mushroom risotto.

Chops Grille

For the ultimate steakhouse experience, make a reservation at Chops Grille. A Royal Caribbean staple, it’s been serving up quality, hand-cut steaks for more than a decade and is one of the most beloved specialty cruise restaurants onboard Voyager of the Seas. The menu has been revamped to offer a contemporary twist on traditional steakhouse dishes, like tender Maine lobster, expertly grilled branzino and of course, the restaurant’s hallmark prime meat. Start your meal with the delicate and always delicious charred beef carpaccio, served rare with fresh arugula and truffle-mustard dressing, or upgrade your dinner date with an impressive chilled seafood tower. From the entrees list, you can’t go wrong with the iconic filet. Side dishes like Yukon Gold mashed potatoes, creamed spinach and Gruyere cheese tater tots are served family-style for the table. Key lime meringue pie and classic New York Cheesecake make for the ultimate sweet ending to your meal. Chops Grille is open for dinner every night and for lunch on sea days.


Izumi is yet another wonderful cruise dining option onboard Voyager of the Seas. Perfect for celebrating special occasions or gathering with a group of fellow foodies, this knockout Royal Caribbean specialty restaurant features Asian-inspired cuisine prepared with a creative twist. Start every meal with shareable izakaya-style appetizers, like crispy-fried shrimp firecracker spring rolls and pan-fried pork gyoza dumplings. Or mix and match some of the cruise restaurant’s famed sushi rolls, prepped by a master sushi chef. Then tuck into a delicious serving of thick, stir-fried udon noodles layered with tender grilled beef, shrimp, chicken or tofu, hits-the-spot tonkatsu ramen or tender hibachi vegetables. For dessert, indulge in refreshing green tea ice cream, crispy sesame balls with red bean paste or a sinfully delicious chocolate lava cake.

Chef's Table

Even the most discerning foodies will be impressed by dinner at Chef’s Table, definitely the most exclusive and coveted dining experience onboard Voyager of the Sea — and the entire Royal Caribbean fleet. Each night, the table is set for a small and intimate group. With the ship’s Chef de Cuisine acting as your guide, you’ll get to taste your way through five spectacular courses ranging from scallop carpaccio drizzled with yuzu vinaigrette, to tender filet mignon served atop truffle potato puree. Each bite is even more exquisite than the last and paired with the perfect wine to complement every flavor. This top-rated specialty cruise restaurant requires reservations in advance, so make sure you book ahead.

Main Dining Room

Every cruiser should dedicate at least one night to eating in the Main Dining Room. This complimentary classic hosts a lavish multi-course dinner from a menu that spotlights rotating delicacies from Barbados to Budapest to Bangladesh. Taste your way through savory duck terrine paired with apricot chutney, spiced eggplant and Kalamata olive tartare dipped in red-pepper hummus, ahi tuna flavored with Moroccan spices and served over mint couscous, and mojo-marinated pork loin glazed with a cumin-citrus reduction. And then there’s dessert, which often includes options like tres leches soaked in sweet cream, homestyle carrot cake, and Grand Marnier soufflé. Since many of the dishes here rotate frequently, you could keep coming back for a new epicurean adventure every single night of your cruise without repeating any dishes.

No matter what kind of cuisine you’re in the mood for during your next vacation, the cruise dining options onboard the Amplified Voyager of the Seas won’t disappoint. Because there are so many places to choose from, you can dedicate each day to a different cruise restaurant — or stick to your top favorites.
