This post is done in partnership with Royal Caribbean but all thought and opinions are my own.

If you have ever been on a cruise or known anyone who has been on one then I am sure that you have heard all about or experienced first hand all of the food that is available to you on a cruise. It is something to behold, the vast amounts of food that is at your disposal night and day, but how does all of that food happen to appear seemingly, endlessly throughout the entire time you are sailing? While aboard Royal Caribbean‘s Liberty of the Seas we were given a behind the scenes tour of the galley by the Executive Chef Donna. She showed us one of the ships three galleys and explained how her staff makes everything happen.

Executive Chef Donna oversees all of the galleys and the galley staff. That is no small task on a ship the size of the Liberty of the Seas with 13 restaurants and room service. Decks 3, 4 and 5 are homes to the ships galleys. The deck 3 galley is where all of the main food prep takes place, the deck 4 galley is for desserts and appetizers and the deck 5 galley is where the foods for the buffet and specialty restaurants are prepared. All of the food is made fresh on board the ship and then transported by elevator to the correct locations. To ensure quality the food is probed for temperature before it leaves the galley and after it arrives at its location. Now that just shows you how seriously they take all of the food on board the ship.

Fun food facts from Royal Caribbean’s Liberty of the Seas:

Up to 30,000 meals a day are prepared.

On a four-day cruise the guests can go through 40,000 eggs and 70,000 slices of pizza. Wow! Talk about having to break a few eggs to make an omelette.

The galley staff also has chefs native to many of the employees home countries to cook for them.

I know you are thinking well what kinds of food options are available on the Liberty of the Seas? Let me tell you there is something for everyone, the pickiest child to the biggest food connoisseur, vegetarian to carnivore will find something they will enjoy. The best way to explain this though is to tell you about the restaurants and share some photos.Dining Options aboard Royal Caribbean Liberty of the Seas #LibertyoftheSeas @RoyalCaribbean #SeasTheDay

Included restaurants:

Main Dining Room – Seats 2101 guests and is open for breakfast, lunch and dinner. The wait staff is phenomenal and you can ask to have items made to your liking or for more than one of something. Two desserts are a really great option.

Windjammer Cafe – Seats 774 guests and is a buffet style restaurant serving breakfast, lunch and dinner. Great if you have the kids along because they will find something they like and you will get something you like too.

Jade – Seats 224 and is a sushi and Asian fusion restaurant. Sushi, fried rice, pan noodles and other Asian dishes make this a worthy meal choice.

Sorrento’s – Seats 79 and here you can get pizza by the slice, salads, sweets and other Italian fare.

Cafe Promenade – Seats 72 and this is nice little coffee shop with pastries and lighter fare.

Room service – Breakfast menus are in the rooms and you can make selections and hang them on your door with a scheduled delivery window. Trust me it’s nice to enjoy this on a balcony overlooking the water.

    First.. It was great to meet you. I will be following your blog more to see all the goodies you whip up.

    Second, I have to say the food in the main dining room was good, but I didn’t care much for the food in the buffet. And, I know I ate way to much on the cruise because in the dining room you could get whatever and however much you wanted. LOL
