Johnny Rockets

Founded in the 1980s, Johnny Rockets is an American institution. This 1950s themed diner can be found on several Royal Caribbean ships. Here guests can side down in a booth or at the counter and order burgers and fries, milkshakes, and ice cream sundaes. This is the perfect place for a family lunch after a morning by the pool, and it will remind you of your local eateries back home.

On the Oasis and Icon Class ships, Royal created one of their most iconic venues to date- the beautiful Central Park. This is an actual open-air park located down the middle of the ships, featuring thousands of live plants and trees throughout the space. Here guests can stroll through the greenery, relax on the park benches, and pop in and out of shops and eateries as though they were walking through a park back in their favorite city.
