What’s The Difference Between Free Dining And Speciality Dining?
Apart from the obvious, that one is free of charge and one isn’t, speciality dining on Allure of the Seas offers an upscale experience, which feels special and a bit unique.
However, whilst I personally adore trying different speciality dining options, I wouldn’t book it for my entire cruise. The dining rooms included in the price of a Royal Caribbean Cruise are fabulous, the waiters go above and beyond to make your dining experience special, they are accommodating and wonderful with children. They just can’t do enough for you.
Honestly, don’t underestimate Royal Caribbean main dining, we have never had a bad meal, a wrong food choice maybe? But never ever a bad meal. But it’s always great to try out 2 or 3 specialty dining options.
