The world’s largest cruise ship, Royal Caribbean’s Symphony of the Seas, has 23 restaurants.
I spent a week on the ship and tried to eat at all of them.
I loved the pizza and DIY taco bar, which were both included with a standard cruise ticket.
If you want to splurge, I suggest the truffle tagliatelle at Jamie’s Italian, or the deviled eggs at Wonderland.

I spent a week on Royal Caribbean’s Symphony of the Seas, which boasts the title of the world’s largest cruise ship.

I tried my hardest to eat my way through the ship — but with around 30,000 dishes created across 23 dining venues daily, this was no easy feat.

In fact, I would have had to eat at 3.28 different restaurants every single day of my trip to get to all of them.

While I may not have tried every single thing, I did get close. And while the world’s largest cruise ship has a dizzying array of options, I managed to narrow it down to my 10 absolute favorite dishes.

Save yourself some time and money and keep scrolling to see which dishes you absolutely cannot miss while on board.

El Loco Fresh is a DIY taco bar with a huge selection of toppings, from cilantro to cheese to jalapeños. The beef tacos were my favorite.

Cost: Included.

While you’re here: Grab a bowl of nachos and bring on the toppings for a DIY nacho bowl.

Apparently, Royal Caribbean’s team of chefs spent years perfecting the New York-style pizza at Sorrento’s. As a New Yorker, I approve.

Cost: Included.

The deviled eggs at Wonderland come in a glass bowl of smoke. They are creamy, smoky, and delicious.

Cost: A six-course dinner is $45 per person.

While you’re here: A reconstructed caprese salad with liquid olive, ricotta powder, basil, and tomato water is also worth trying.

The truffle tagliatelle at Jamie’s Italian was super creamy, and did not skimp on the truffles.

Cost: A three-course meal here starts at $20 per person for lunch, and $40 for dinner.

While you’re here: Round out your three-course meal with truffle arancini or a cured meat plank, then save room for the Amalfi Lemon Meringue Cheesecake, a sort of delicious cross between a key lime pie and a cheesecake.

The Campfire Cookie at Playmakers — a chocolate chip cookie topped with marshmallows and Nutella — takes a few laps around the ship’s running track to burn off, but is so worth it.

Cost: $6.

While you’re here: Also get the Poke Nachos, which are wonton chips topped with raw ahi tuna, Serrano peppers, cilantro, and avocado with Sriracha aioli.

Izumi’s truffle lobster tempura roll is pure, delectable decadence with both creamy truffle and crispy fried lobster.

Cost: $16.

While you’re here: The Crispy Rice Spicy Tuna — creamy tuna on crispy rice — is also very, very good.

The Maine lobster roll at Hooked is everything a lobster roll should be: heavy on the lobster, light on the mayo, and served on a grilled bun with a side of homemade chips.

Cost: …read more
