Oasis of the Seas Dining

27 Oasis of the Seas Dining Options

Oasis5Roger and I are the first to admit we’re foodies.  We love amazing meals, on land and sea, and we enjoy trying new foods.  Here in Little Rock, our favorite restaurant meals include Brave New Restaurant and Sonny Williams Steakhouse, with a sad nod to Vermillion Water Grille, which recently closed.   On sea so far, our best meal ever has been the Chef’s Table aboard the Caribbean Princess, with the Enchanted Dinner aboard the Norwegian Spirit running a close second.  And, we’ll probably have new favorites as we continue to experience other cruise lines and ships. 

In the meantime, we just enjoyed a brief 2- night cruise aboard Royal Caribbean’s Oasis of the Seas, and we were so surprised to find so many dining options – some are just casual and easy, while others promise to be an amazing dining experience.  Since we were Royal Caribbean’s guests prior to their inaugural sailings, we were only able to tour many of these restaurants.  So, here’s what we found in just two days: 

Opus Dining Room is the traditional cruise dining room for the Oasis of the Seas, and they’ve decorated her in the grand style of the 1920 oceanliner diningn rooms.  Absolutely beautiful!  And, the Windjammer Marketplace is the Oasis of the Seas buffet, but it’s set up nicely with various

stations around the room that should aid in moving lots of people through at any given time on a cruise.  In the Vitality Spa, you’ll find the Vitality Café offering healthy snacks, sandwiches, wraps and fruit, juices and smoothies for the calorie conscious guests during breakfast, lunch, and dinner.  Room service is always available, but there’s a small upcharge for some special Dine in Delights, like an original Johnny Rockets hamburger or Ghiradelli chocolate chip cookies.  And, Royal Caribbean now has their own Chef’s Table for a very small number of guests for $75 per person, which includes a small cocktail party prior to the meal and all the wine during the meal. 

Oasis3Roger enjoys an afternoon snack of sushi, and that can be found on the Oasis of the Seas in Izumi Restaurant, where you’ll find Asian cuisine and a sushi bar available during lunch and dinner with a la carte pricing.  Here are some other Oasis of the Seas dining options in various neighborhoods that perhaps you and I can experience on future cruises: 

Central Park

  • 150 Central Park promises to be one of the most exclusive dining experiences for dinner only with a $35 per person surcharge. Oasis7
  • Giovanni’s Table is a Tuscan trattoria, open for  lunch and dinner, with surcharges of $10 and $15 per person. 
  • Park Café, an indoor/outdoor gourmet market, serves fresh salads, sandwiches, and soups for breakfast, lunch, snacks, dinner, and late night treats.
  • Vintages is Royal Caribbean’s traditional wine bar, but they’re also service cheese and tapas in this bar for lunch and dinner with a la carte pricing. 
  • Chops Grille is Royal Caribbean’s amazing steakhouse, open only for dinner with a $25 per person surcharge. 


  • We enjoyed lunch at the Seafood Shack, and we can highly recommend fish and chips, sweet potato fries, and calamari, with a $7.95 per person charge for lunch and a $9.95 per person charge for dinner. 
  • The Boardwalk Bar is simply an open-air bar sitting between the Seafood Shack and Johnny Rockets, but it’s so much more Oasis1than another ship bar.  We were surprised to see corn dogs, along with other snacks, including pre-packaged sandwiches, fruit, and salads,  for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. 
  • The Donut Shop is open all day to satisfy your sweet tooth with a variety of donuts. 
  • And, the Ice Cream Parlor will be another favorite with a la carte pricing. 
  • Johnny Rockets is just a fun meal, as you experience good food in a 50’s style diner.  The diner is open for breakfast with a small $3.95 per person surcharge, as well as lunch and dinner for only $4.95 per person.  We enjoyed the french fries and onion rings with ranch dressing that we were served as we entered, along with the chocolate malts we ordered, and that would have been enough food for us! 

Royal Promenade

  • The Mondo Café is just steps from Boleros, serving coffee, sandwiches, and pastries for breakfast, lunch, snacks, dinner, and late night treats.
  • Sorrento’s Pizzeria was a casual afternoon meal for us on our cruise, where pizza was ready to serve by the slice or you could order a whole pizza made with exactly the ingredients you choose.  On your cruise, you can enjoy Sorrento’s for lunch, dinner, or
