Food on Board The Royal Princess


Regular readers will know that Mummy went onboard Princess Cruises The Royal Princess in the summer, and she has shared with you her over view of this amazing ship already. She now wants to tell you about the food on board The Royal Princess. Whilst on board, Mummy was also treated to a fantastic meal in Sabatini’s the Italian restaurant.

Mummy says….’Sabatini’s is one of the specialty dining restaurants on the ship, which means you pay a nominal charge to eat here. (Most food in the other restaurants are part of the inclusive dining, full details and explanation can be found on the website.) Sabitini’s is an Italian dining option, and is one of the “Best Cruise Ship Specialty Restaurants” at sea (USA TODAY).

The restaraunt specialises in pasta and seafood, and whilst I am not a huge seafood fan, I adore pasta and could live on it if I had to! I was so excited to be eating in Sabitini’s it is a beautiful restaurant, and after being shown the other dining options on the ship and seeing the quality of the food I knew the meal would be excellent.

I had a three course lunch, and it was absolutely delicious. To start I chose Fettuccine Alfredo in a Parmesan basket. My main course was Chateaubriand of Beef Tenderloin, and desert was a Milky Chocolate-Hazelnut Soufflé. Honestly the whole meal was faultless. The food was the highest quality and cooked perfectly.
