There'll be a host of new restaurant choices, specialty dining options and collaborations with well-known chefs on Royal Caribbean's new Quantum- class of ships, due for launch later this year.

Quantum of the Seas will debut in November with Anthem of the Seas to follow in about a year. Both will feature Dynamic Dining with the traditional main dining room replaced with a selection of five full-service, complimentary restaurants.

These will include the comfort foods of American Icon Grill, contemporary cuisine at Chic, a pan-Asian menu at Silk and dishes evoking the tradition of the ocean liner at The Grande, where formal dress is required.

Coastal Kitchen will fuse Mediterranean influences with Californian produce and will be exclusively for suite guests.

Among the specialty choices will be the first Jamie's Italian at sea by Jamie Oliver, Wonderland, where Royal Caribbean chefs can let their imaginations run wild, an American gastropub called Michael's Genuine Pub, and Devinly Decadence at Solarium Bistro where all the meals will have fewer than 500 calories. Chops Grille steakhouse, Izumi Japanese restaurant, and the intimate Chef's Table, will all be revamped.

There'll also be more choice in casual eateries such as Windjammer Marketplace with international cuisine, interactive food stations, made-to-order dishes, an on-site bakery and a 24-hour food station The Grill, The Cafe@Two70 which will serve freshly made sandwiches, salads and soups, and SeaPlex Dog House - the first hot dog truck at sea.

Existing options such as Sorrento's, Cafe Promenade and Johnny Rockets (cover charge applies) will also return. Royal Caribbean will make it easier to plan and book different meals with a new reservation system due to start next month.

Both new ships will carry 4180 passengers, with Quantum of the Seas cruising seven to 12-night itineraries from Cape Liberty, New York, and Anthem of the Seas cruising from Southampton and Fort Lauderdale.
