Tips for Alternative Restaurants on the Radiance of the Seas:

  • Menu for Chops Grille on Royal Caribbean
  • Giovanni's Table Italian Restaurant menu on Royal Caribbean
  • Chops Grille and the Sama Grill Brazilan Steak House are available for dinner by reservation only. "Earlier than later" is your best rule of thumb when making reservations for either of these specialty restaurants!
  • Chef's Table, also reservations only, does book up VERY quickly. We strongly suggest that you make your reservations for this venue as early as possible!
  • We recommend making your pre-confirmation reservations online (during the check-in process) or with Royal Caribbean's Ship Services as soon as possible after booking.
  • You may make your reservations the first day of your cruise, but with this option your choices will probably be limited.
  • Royal Caribbean offers special reservations packages before you board, which include booking reservations for Chops Grille.
  • This is a dinner only experience from 6:00pm to 10:00pm at Chops Grille and you'll feel most comfortable at the supper club in elegant attire on formal evenings, but otherwise smart casual is suggested.
  • There is no smoking in Chops Grille. The 39 USD fee per diner charge does include gratuity.
  • Specialty drinks, beer, wine, and soft drinks can be purchased from the current bar menu at Chops Grille.
  • Giovanni's Table has limited seating and you should make your reservations ahead of time 
  • The 20 USD per diner charge does include gratuity at Giovanni's Table, and smart casual clothing is suggested.Tank tops and bare feet are not permitted.
  • How much should I tip at The Portofino Restaurant and Chops Grille on Radiance of the Seas? First, bear in mind that all alcoholic beverages that you pay for will have a gratuity added. The cover charge does include gratuity, however, you may wish to consider giving an extra gratuity to the waiter or waitress who has served you. An appropriate amount is to estimate the value of the meal you ordered if you ordered it on land and tip 15-20% based on that cost. If you feel that the value of the meal was $50 were you to order it in a land-based restaurant, you should tip $7.50-$10. It is certainly your discretion not to tip, but, the waiters serving you are some of the best on the ship and should be rewarded if they provided you with an exceptional dining experience.
