Sushi is an easy and fun meal and can be kept casual, or taken up a notch for a romantic date night. It's a versatile option that you will be coming back to time and time again during your cruise. Here are 5 of the best sushi spots at sea!

A Royal Caribbean fan favorite, Izumi Hibachi & Sushi offers a delicious Japanese menu. Inside you will find traditional seating, as well as seating around the teppanyaki tables for those who have reserved the teppanyaki experience (this tends to sell out quickly as it is very popular). Enjoy delicious rolls including the seared tuna tataki roll, crispy tuna roll, and other classics. For dessert the mochi trio is the way to go with flavors of mango, strawberry, and chocolate.
