I guess I'll just hang out in the Bamboo room instead!

As I sit in The Bamboo Room it is quickly my fav which is an accomplishment given Edgardo at the Sky Bar aka Lime and Coconut who remembered me and my drink(s) from 3 months ago.  Both good options.

They were included in my drink package on my Mariner sailing in early February. I'll just chalk it up as being lucky at the time 🙂

Was that an Express as well? Or still a sit-down? You better believe I'll still be trying it!

Oh, good point - it was a sit down - but I'll be on Nav in December and I'll happily (well maybe not "happily") pay for one since they're pretty darned good. As long as they have malts and not just shakes. Yeah, I'm picky.

You have just described the optimal business model.  I cant get enough people to pay 7.00 for a sit down unlimited meal but i can get 4X the amount of people to pay 3 - 5 dollars for less food by the pool.  

Yeah..makes me more likely to skip it and head to the buffet or park café for a " free sandwich".......I was willing to pay and make a meal out of it at JR's..but I wont pay double for the same thing..

 

But many will...I get it.

Probably most importantly as Matt pointed out is that Johnny Rocket's is convenient on the pool deck.  On Voyager and Freedom class ships they were not located in the most frequented area.  This exposure and accessibility will greatly increase JR sales.

Why would I go there and pay extra when I can get a burger elsewhere on the ship?

Like many purchases while on vacation, Royal is banking on impulse purchases.  With JR Express conveniently located next to the pool deck with plenty foot traffic, their YTD sales #'s will be up.

Surprised it took this long for the poolside Johnny Rockets to expand. Know when I was on Anthem it seemed busy. Only major complaint was it took well over 15 minutes for them to complete an order.

Not 100% sure but I think only one other non Quantum class ship has a poolside venue, think it is Fish and Chips style place.

I was once told JR was placed in certain designated locale, not really convenient or popular location, to increase the foot traffic, in low activity areas of the ship & spread the traffic around some, to help alleviate crowd in heavily dense areas of the ship.

True - on Mariner I walked by there several times a day when it was open and very rarely ever saw anyone there.
