DINING (Specialty Restaurant)
Sabatini's is Italian fine dining in an elegant
Mediterranean inspired setting. It does not focus on
one type of Italian cuisine but rather features items
from several regions of Italy. It is open to the public
for dinner. Guests staying in certain suite categories
may have a complimentary breakfast here.
Regal Princess also has dedicated facilities in the main dining rooms for two specialty dining experiences.
In the Allegro Dining Room, this feature is the Chef's Table Lumiere (upper left). The Chef's Table is a multi-course feast with wine
pairings. Guests are first hosted in the galley by the ship's executive chef and maitre d'. They are then brought to the Chef's Table Luminere where they receive receive detailed explanations of each course and the wine pairings. After the final course, the chef joins them for a question and answer session.
In the Symphony and Concerto Dining Rooms, a large table is set off by wine cabinets. Here, in the Wine Cellar (lower left), small groups can have private dinners with special Winemaker menus. The experience is similar to the Chef's Table but the executive chef and the maitre d' do not participate.
On certain nights, a section of the Horizon Court is used as
the venue for more casual specialty dining experiences. As
the name implies, Fondues is a European-style fondue
experience. The Crab Shack was inspired by the waterfront
seafood venues of the American Northwest. Main courses
feature such things as steamed pots of Alaska King Crab,
shrimp and vegetables. The number of Fondues and Crab
Shack experiences held during a cruise depends on a variety
of factors including the ship's itinerary and the demographic
make-up of the passengers. For example, there are usually
more Fondues on a northern European cruise while there are
more Crab Shacks held during North American cruises.
