As cruise ships have grown bigger and more modern, the restaurants onboard multiplied. Now, every new ship from the cruise lines are equipped with cool options like Italian restaurants or a Sushi Bar, and, of course, the staple: a steakhouse.
Here’s our guide for steakhouses on the main American cruise lines: Carnival Cruise Line, Royal Caribbean International, Norwegian Cruise Line and Princess Cruises.
2Chops Grille on Royal Caribbean International
The restaurant has a fixed menu which is identical on every ship on the fleet and was recently refreshed with new dishes and more options. Also new, is the possibility of having lunch here; previously Chops Grille was only opened for dinner. Prices may vary depending on the ship, but the average fee is $35 per person. Like most alternative dining venues at sea, you pay one fee for dinner for person, as opposed to a la carte.
According to Royal Caribbean, here are the highlights of the steakhouse: “the first dry-aged steaks at sea, each hand selected and aged for nearly four weeks to achieve the pinnacle of flavor, tenderness, and aroma. This prime beef is joined by Maine lobster, veal parmesan, grilled branzino and more succulent dishes paired with addictive sides and irresistible desserts.” Do we need to say more?
