I have been observing the treatment of the casino people aboard my past 3 cruises first lets say the casino bars must put a lot of pressure on the bartenders most if not all in my experience have been short tempered lack any personality what so ever I almost always walk right outside to schooner to get my drinks where I feel appreciated next the ships are set up for early risers not casino people we stay up late pouring more and more money into the ships bottom line as a matter of fact I would bet (no pun intended) that I for one spend huge amounts of money way more then the cruise fare the problem is we sleep late and never make it up for breakfast and barely for lunch some days leaving sorrentos or promenade café as our only choices it would be nice if royal would recognize these things and have one area open in the windjammer open late in WJ or even round the clock for food on our schedules after all we spend a hell of a lot of money and the casino is always crowded so I know a lot of people feel the way I do some will say how about room service well it was ok before the 7.95 charge and the added 2.00 ghost charge on the same order and the food is always cold even if the ships went back to the midnite buffets that would help and there is plenty of room in the WJ do we really need 3 areas of gluten free foods for the most part the same in all three areas the 9.95 charge is not a big deal but the cold food and sitting in your room eating is not my idea of cruising I don't expect much will be done to serve casino people in the new ala carte world of cruising but I would hope that at least Royal would consider my  request

Agree that Royal needs to step up their "after 10pm" offerings. However, from the last few cruises I've been on the ship tends to die down by 12am. I know on Oasis it seems the house lights on the Promenade are usually on by 12:30am and most bars have shutdown by then. On Anthem Michael's Pub would stop taking food orders around 11pm.

Think it was Vision they had "Park Cafe" in the Solarium that was open until around 3am. They had grab and go salads, pizza, and desserts. Plus they offered a small buffet selection that ran out of stuff. Say they had hamburgers, would run out of buns.

Changing lines, the only NCL cruise I was on had some type of food in the casino late at night.

Biggest issue with Royal's larger ships is it seems they have no small dining venues that could be open late. Ships that did have the smaller sitdown venues tended to be empty late (Seaview Cafe/Restaurant) and had slow service. Same time they have been converted to revenue generating space.


Now a general question to any one that made it this far.

Would you be willing to pay for some type of enhanced late night dining venue? If so, how much and what type (buffet style, flat rare or a la carte sit down).

I'm never up that late.  How many people are in the casino at 3am?  

I think the problem is that kitchens are scaled for large numbers, high volume.  Opening WJ and keeping food fresh for several hours for a couple dozen people who all visit individually spread over 3 or 4 hours would waste a lot of food.  

What's the $2.00 ghost charge for?
