Great pay dining options
For all our first time CM cruisers, let's share our favorite pay dining venues, we've enjoyed on our cruises..this might help some newbies decide if they will indulge,and leave the traditional dining room for an evening or two.

I enjoyed the Steakhouse on the Magic..loved, my fillet! Shanghai on the Epic...great Chinese food...Qsine on the Eclipse was a fun venue,with fun foods, presented in fun ways....great fr lunch! The Pinnacle on the Zuiderdam, still brings a smilel to my face...delish food and great service! October 23rd, 2013 02:42 PM

I've had alot of clients tell me they don't do specialty restaurants because they feel they've already paid for all their food and why spend more to eat in another venue. To them I always say you have no idea what you're missing!

We do the specialty restaurants on every ship we've been on. For one reason, we absolutely love them. But we also have to be able to tell our clients about them from a first-hand experience.

While some are better than others, we've never been disappointed and have always had a wonderful experience.

But to pick one over another would be very difficult because there are so many great ones we've enjoyed in our 46 cruises.

One of the most unique and interesting restaurants would have to be Qsine on Celebrity. Loved it. We also did a wine pairing dinner in the Pinnacle Grill on Holland America which was awesome!

Don't think we could pick just one.

But you'd definitely be remiss if you didn't try one on your next cruise.

I would for sure book Chops again and again, just plain good food, excellent service, etc.

On the Zuierdam, they should have paid our tab in Pinnacle Grille, due to the lack of service and tension with our servers in the dr. We tried unsuccessfully to book additional nights there, due to this issue.
