Wonderful food and great service - Ovation of the Seas

Jamie's Italian restaurant was one of our choices 
out of  '3 dinner package deal' we bought
 for specialty restaurants on board.

Plenty of flavour on garlic bread.
Tastes a lot better than it looks...^^

Fried mushrooms.
Crispy and freshly cooked!

Rich tomato soup was also full of flavour.

Seafood soup for main course. 

Porcini risotto!

Meringue cake for dessert

Chocolate mud cake


 Our second specialty restaurant was in Chops Grille.

Appetizer, scallops

French onion soup

Juicy eye fillet, cooked for perfection!

Delicious cheesecake!

Overall, excellent food and great service once again!
Strongly recommendable for steak lovers.


 Our last specialty restaurant experience was at 

Quite interesting decor!

Menu can be read once we brush through...
Fancy! ^^

Liquid olive


Crab meat, avocado mousse in a crispy cone

Buffalo egg with smoked blue cheese

Duck liver parfait

Fried kimchee 

Baby vegetables

Baby beetroot

Spicy Tuna tataki with yuzu granita

Beef rib 

Rib, deboned by our friendly waiter


Pork belly

Dessert menu

Chocolate cake

Meringue cake

Wonderland's signature sweets,
Cheesecake lollipop.

We were given 16 course meal as a degustation menu.
Every single dish was full of flavour and delicious!
We both absolutely loved them.

One of the very best gourmet experience on cruise ships ever!


 Main dinning room entrance.
There are four themed restaurants with different decors.
Chic, Grande, Silk and American Grill.
Menu is same, though.

We only had to wait for a table no more than 10 minutes, 
no matter how many people in our group,
with reservation or without.
That is pretty good considering the number of passengers on board.

Rather simple food but delicious as well.




We enjoyed general culinary experiences on board very much
whether it is in a specialty restaurant with extra charge
or a main dinning room for free...

Needless to mention of their outstanding services
especially on specialty restaurants.

We shall be back to Royal Caribbean!
Good on you.
