The Windjammer staff greets you as they open the doors. I noticed that they were very adamant about using sanitizer. The hostess watched each person come in and if they did not sanitize, she would approach them with a bottle of it and tell them again. We decided to choose a table all the way to the left by the “Suite” reserved section of the buffet. No we didn’t go in there, we just sat near it. Over the course we of the week we saw, maybe, two people go in the suite room.
I was really impressed with the spread. We had tried eating at the buffet for dinner on Carnival and it was very limited, ¾ of their buffet was closed at night. Not on Royal Caribbean (another reason why we like RC as our preferred line). Every night there was a pizza station where you could make your own. A stir fry station, which I have to say, was MUCH better than the one offered on Carnival. It didn’t have that yucky fried oil taste to it. There was actual flavor and a larger variety of veggies to add. One section always had a theme, Greek, Italian, Indian, Caribbean, etc. It changed each night. Then there was a carving station with meat and a daily fish. French fries, mashed potatoes, gravy, steamed veggies, and twice-baked potatoes were available every night as well. There were a few other items that I don’t remember that were always there as well. As far as desserts go, there were fruit, cheeses, cookies, cakes, warm treats (bread pudding), and a sundae bar every night!
