What’s The Difference Between Free Dining And Speciality Dining?

Apart from the obvious, that one set of restaurants on Odyssey Of The Seas are free of charge and specialty dining isn’t, speciality dining offers an intimate upscale dining experience. The menus are generally honed by celebrity chefs, or offer something a little quirky and unique.

However, whilst speciality dining is unique and truly amazing, I wouldn’t book it for my entire cruise; the three-night option works well for us. The dining rooms included in the price of a Royal Caribbean Cruise are fabulous; the waiters work so hard to make your dining experience special; they are accommodating with children, lively and cheerful and can’t do enough for you.
