Aramco ExPats Travel Club

Aramcon Expats are known to be hard-working, fun-loving sorts with discriminating palettes when it comes time to make a visit to the dinner table. Happily, gourmands amongst our readers who are thinking of joining the cruise planned for Mexico later this year aboard the luxury ship Ruby Princess need not fret when it comes to the selection and quality of the culinary offerings they will enjoy while cruising the Pacific coast of Mexico. Princess chefs are famous as culinary artists who insist on serving only the very finest offerings. In fact, the entire fleet of Princess ships has been inducted into the prestigious Chaîne des Rôtisseurs gastronomic society. Each chef's menu is creative, and the selections change daily. Pair that with impeccable service and you’re in for an unforgettable gourmet experience. Your main problem in matters concerning addressing the demands of your rumbling tummies will be choosing where, when, and what to eat—and what to wear. You will have a plethora of options to choose from. If you’re in the mood to dress up a bit and live the high life, there’s traditional dining available at several formal restaurants serving meals in the classic cruise tradition at set times of the day. The Boticelli Dining Room is stunning to the eyes and even more satisfying to the stomach. Or, you can elect to indulge in Anytime dining, giving you the option of eating anytime you like, as the name implies, and choosing whatever foods suit your fancy from a varied selection (and we all know about Aramcons’ fancies and what it takes to suit them!). Then there’s the alternative of taking your meal at one of the ship’s Specialty restaurants offering a variety of gourmet favorites. Take, for instance, the Crown Grill steak and seafood restaurant, which was voted by USA Today as one of the “Best Cruise Ship Steakhouses.” Yum! Finally, if you’re wearing your swimsuit or simply looking for the easiest, no-great-effort-required option, there’s a host of Casual dining choices, including a poolside Pizzeria, the Burger & Hot Dog Grill, and the Café Caribe. Whether you’re a carnivore, a pescetarian, a vegetarian, a vegan, or not quite sure which or what, fear not! The Ruby Princess has menu options to match your tastes.
