Splendour refit doubles dining options, adds Viking Crown menu

Royal Caribbean International said Splendour of the Seas will emerge from its extensive revitalization on Nov. 25 with more than twice the number of dining options previously available including a new a la carte menu in the Viking Crown Lounge.

The five-week, $35m drydock is under way at Reparaciones Navantia in Cádiz, Spain.

Fresh dining venues on the 1996-built ship will include the Asian Izumi restaurant; the line’s signature steak house, Chops Grille; the Boardwalk Dog House hot dog counter; the Park Café deli-style restaurant and the exclusive Chef’s Table dining experience.

The a la carte menu in the Viking Crown Lounge will offer bite-sized portions of classic dishes such as jumbo shrimp cocktail and Kobe beef sliders, Asian-inspired tempuras and soft shell crab, at a la carte pricing.

Boardwalk Dog House will serve traditional hot dogs, wieners, brats, sausages and other linked meats and a variety of toppings to split a long bun. The spot will be open for lunch and dinner at no charge.

The Chef’s Table, co-hosted by the executive chef and sommelier for an intimate wine pairing dinner of five courses, is open for dinner at a $95 cover charge.

Chops Grille will be located adjacent to the Viking Crown Lounge and offer a menu of prime cuts prepared a la minute. The restaurant is open for dinner at a $30 cover charge.

Izumi, offering a sushi bar and hot-rock cooking, also will be located adjacent to the Viking Crown Lounge. It is open for lunch at a $3 charge and dinner at a $5 charge, plus a la carte menu pricing.

The indoor/outdoor Park Café gourmet market serves salads, sandwiches, soups and pastries, and is open for breakfast, lunch and dinner, at no charge.
