Oasis will feature two dozen dining outlets, according to Frank Weber, the man in charge of the dining experiences on Royal Caribbean ships.
In about half of the dining outlets, you’ll need to pony up extra to dine. Fees range from $4.95 per person to $70 per person. The latter is for the Chef’s Table at the Concierge Lounge, where dinners are hosted by the head chef and sommelier and include wine pairings for a maximum of 14 passengers per evening.
The second priciest alternative dining venue is 150 Central Park, at $35 per person.
