Chops Grille

Food & Drink

We saved the best for last. It was the last night of our cruise and this being our 10th cruise with Royal Caribbean, Chops has always been a favorite.


Chops Grille is a classic traditional steakhouse. Chops Grille is best known for their exceptional prime cuts of meats, but also offer chicken, lamb and various types of fish and shellfish.


The atmosphere of Chops Grille is upscale and dimly lit. The dress code is smart casual.


There were six of us at the table for dinner and there was a good selection of food to choose from.

I started out with the Crispy Goat Cheese Salad, which had green apples, candied walnuts, cranberries and topped with balsamic dressing. I was extremely impressed with the flavor of this salad. I normally will get a Caesar Salad or The Wedge, but something about this really called out to me. I was so glad that I chose to go with it. For appetizers, I chose the Colossal Shrimp Cocktail.

Others at the table ordered Tuna Tartare, Jumbo Lump Crab Cake with a Chipotle aioli and the Grilled Black Pepper Bacon.

I went ahead and ordered my usual, the 9 oz. Angus Filet Mignon. As always, it was extremely tender and delicious. There are many available sides, but since we had a party of six, the waiter went ahead and brought the table all of the sides and they were served family style so that we could all get to try a great selection. The various sides we had available were gruyere cheese tater tots, creamed spinach, grilled jumbo asparagus, mac &cheese, Yukon gold mashed potatoes, sautéed mushrooms, truffled French fries and a salted baked potato. I enjoyed the tater tots, creamed spinach, and mushrooms the most.

They have several delicious looking desserts to choose from, but since it was my wife's birthday and she loved the lemon meringue cheesecake, they brought us an entire cake for dessert. Chops Grille does not offer this on a normal basis, it is only available at Jamie's Italian, but since the Specialty Dining Manager knew how much we liked it, he went out of his way to make sure that we had one for this special occasion.


Overall, Chops Grille is always a must dine at venue for at least one meal. Often on a cruise, we will go a couple times.

It is $39 per person for dinner, unless you have the dining package. Lunch is also available for $19 per person. In addition to that, things like the Seafood Towers and the Maine Lobster Tails can be ordered for an additional charge.

I have been an avid traveler for the past 35 years. For the past 20 of those years, cruising has been my preferred method of travel. I have been all over the world and have discovered the best way to see many locations while enjoying the travel between them has been by ship.

After going on several cruises I had found a passion for knowing about every cruise line and ship available. My friends would come to me asking for my advice and recommendations for their cruises. I would happily help them out. I then decided to get my license and actually sell travel through the cruise line directly. It did not cost anything more for my friends to book through me since I was paid through the cruise lines as a travel agent, but the perks I received from the cruise lines were incredible. This enabled me to cruise more often and on more cruise ships. I love to share my knowledge with others and see them enjoy themselves as much as I have.

The reason I started this blog was to share my knowledge about cruising with as many people as I can. I am here to answer your questions and I will hopefully open your eyes to all of the wonderful possibilities that cruising has to offer.
