Default Dining

Hello everyone. I just had a question about dining. We are sailing on the Monarch of the Seas on Feb 22-26, heading to the Bahamas! Our first cruise. We were curious as to what kind of selection as far as food, in the main dining room. We are taking the 8:30 seating. We plan to eat in the dining room for the most part. Any help would be appreciated. I know that my wife LOVES seafood, and had heard that because this trip is less than 7 nights, we won't see any Lobster. No biggie for me, but she is a little bummed. What are we looking at? I figure the buffet is gonna have a little of everything.

Thanks in advance for any/all help!

There will be fish selections on the menu for your wife. Not sure about lobster on a 4 nite cruise. Seems like some cruisers see lobster on less then a 7 nite cruise and some don't.

Enjoy your cruise!

You should have still plenty to choose from, including fish everyday. Check out the Windjammer for lunch, should be even more fish. The menu in the dining room each evening usually has a decent selection as well.

Thank you.


Next question. I did not do a prepaid gratuity. What I am wondering is should I budget for the gratuity for the the week? What should I expect to spend in gratuity for the entire week. We will not be eating at any of the added expense restaurants. I hate to sound like a cheapskate, I just want to go into this experience with both eyes wide open.

Gratuities will run $10 per person per day for your cabin steward and wait staff. You can eith pay in cash in the provided envelopes or put it on your Seapass card.
