 But $55 per person for lunch...I mean come on...

Apparently, the marketing on this is not good enough to suck you in.

Wow. Just wow. Who in the world is right.    Definitely not anyone with shellfish or nut allergies. I am rarely a fan prix-fixe menus, but this one also begs the question who in the world thought this was a good idea.

Yes, because some people are willing to pay it.

Of course, Royal Caribbean, like most businesses, will charge whatever people are willing to pay.  I guess my real question is, why aren't people willing to pay as much for a cabana at Labadee as they are willing to pay for a cabana at Coco Cay.

I would have a hard time not laughing out loud when if they offered it to me

The newness has worn off a long time ago at Labadee.

I didn't see anything on the menu that was enticing so I will pass.

We felt the same way about the menu.

OVERVIEW

 

Taste of Royal is a showcase of fleet favorites from our specialty restaurants during one exclusive, four-course meal you won’t want to miss. Plus add on an optional, expertly curated wine flight once onboard at an additional price.

 

This lunch begins with Wonderland’s Citrus Seas Tuna Tartare. Next up is a fresh take on Tuscan cuisine from Giovanni’s Italian Kitchen, featuring mascarpone risotto with crabmeat. Then Chops Grille anchors the savory selections with a classic surf and turf of filet mignon and jumbo shrimp. Make sure you save room for dessert — indulgent fried cheesecake from 150 Central Park.

 

You’ll receive a letter in your stateroom the day before your reservation confirming the time and location of your lunch. Space is limited, so book before you sail to secure your spot for this unforgettable experience.

 

Taste of Royal is not included in any dining packages.*

Will this be on all ships or just a few? 

Given the description, one would assume Oasis class only.

As the local cynic I must ask; where would this be held?  In the MDR I would imagine.  Those willing to spend the money...will they appreciate being in the same room as the "free" MDR lunch?  Or would the seaday MDR lunch simply disappear altogether? 

 

As to the idea of a fixed menu of samples from a variety of restaurants...I would say it is a good idea at $15-25 per person for a lunch to allow people a taste of the menus and entice them for more (make dinner bookings).  I would say the more options, the better.  Whether I participate or not I still recognize additional options *if* they don't take away from what is already included.  But $55 per person for lunch...I mean come on...

Several years ago, this was offered for free to get people to sign up for dinner at Chops or Portofino.   I believe we were on Jewel of the Seas.

Kinda hard to get that desert from 150CP on Adventure.

Just saw it pop up in my cruise planner for my cruise next month.

 

Given I can have lunch at Chops almost 3 times for the same amount (and use my drinks package for cocktails and wine), I know what I'd be choosing - especially as they don't say what venue it will be held in.
