Edelweiss Dining Room (complimentary dining)
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 centre 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 minutes 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.
Windjammer Cafe (complimentary dining)
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.
