Edelweiss Dining Room
Dining in style. Rather than constructing two separate banquet halls, Royal Caribbean decided to create a single, two-tiered formal dining room. This lends a community atmosphere to mealtimes; you have a sense of fellowship with the surrounding tables. An open area in the center of the first level is connected to the second level balcony via an elegant staircase. Floor to ceiling glass windows enhance the feeling of openness, and allow you to watch the ocean drift by while you dine.
As for the meals themselves, if you'd rather eat quickly than linger over dinner then Edelweiss is probably not the place for you. From the shrimp cocktail to the Baked Alaska, dining is an event on most cruise lines, and the Rhapsody is no exception. Keep in mind, however, that the Rhapsody's galley is serving 1200 guests who arrived within minuets of one another. Though the cuisine is delightful, gourmands on Royal Caribbean may not find their palates overwhelmed with top-of-the-line taste sensations. But if your appetite lies somewhere in between a fast-food junkie and an epicurean master, then the delicious, creative meals served in the Edelweiss Dining room will not disappoint.
Snack attack! The breakfast and lunch buffets at Windjammer are perfect for cruisers on the go. The wait staff serves a casual diner every evening. The cafe also offers teatime refreshments; perfect for quenching those post-shore excursion munchies. After dancing the night away in the Viking Crown Lounge, pop down to Windjammer for the midnight buffet. Enjoy the view from the cafe, or take your plates out to the tables on the Sun Deck (9), either way you're sure to appreciate the passing scenery.
Enjoy burgers, hot dogs, and pizza poolside.
Have food delivered to your cabin, anytime you feel the urge. During lunch and diner, selected items from Edelweiss and Windjammer are available for room service.
Be you at the lounge, bar, or casino, the food will find you at midnight!
