How much is the charge now, for JR?  Is breakfast still free?  There is a JR on Explorer, right?

Breakfast is still free and only served on Oasis class ships.

 

I believe the charge is around $12 pp now, except on Quantum class ships where the charge is per item.

Kind of enjoy JRs . . . except on Quantum class.  On Anthem [assume typical of all Q class ships] it's an outdoor walk up with no table service and no dancing.  Plus they managed to screw up both of our orders.  Got a refund and went on to the Windjammer which is adjacent.  Often heard folks say why pay extra for what you can get free elsewhere. On Anthem that's exactly true with possible exception of shakes which I don't order anyway.

Feel free to dance.

 

I would applaud.

We must have walked past it dozens of times and did not notice it...did not even go for our BOGO Shake offer, so that shows you how it was 'upper most on our mind'.  When we have been on Oasis class ships we would always do a breakfast there.  On our very first cruise, Navigator, we had lunch there and it was awful for us.  So that we would never do again. I do like their shakes however.

We used to visit once on most cruises.  The price for JR has gotten to the point we haven't gone for several years and won't again.  It's a decent burger but nothing special, not worth it to us any more.

I should probably know this, so I apologize in advance.  DH and I will be sailing in 2020 (the first time since 2017).  We will be on Allure (only our 2nd Oasis-class ship) and have pulled out the stops with both unlimited dining and deluxe beverage packages.  The question is...if dining at JR (lunch/dinner...something other than breakfast), will the additional fees waived?

Wow, $12.95 for a burger and fries is ridiculous.  Guess we will not be visiting JR's.

 

Must be enough people are buying at that price.  It will probably go up.

Navigator has per item pricing and a really good burger.  Mariner had the cover charge and a not so good burger with cold fries.  Its so inconsistent...

I agree. I haven’t been to one in years. I happened to be in a mall that had one and after reading so much about it I decided to go and check it out. It has declined since the last time I was there. I could have had a better burger and better experience elsewhere especially here on Long Island. We never tried JR on Anthem. I don’t find the need to buy a burger and fries on a cruise ship and after my latest experience at a land based one you couldn’t pay me to eat there again. I just don’t understand the big draw on Royal Caribbean.

When we were on the Symphony this past April, we had the unlimited dining package- lunch at JR was included on Sea days and dinner was included- so no additional charge

I had the boardwalk balcony on the oasis in 2018, that room came with a free dinner at JR that's the only reason we event went there. was my one and only time dinning at a non included restaurant throughout my 13 cruises. never visited a JR on land but i will say i did enjoy that burger. around here unless your going to a fast food restaurant, a burger will run you 10-18 dollars.

 Still not worth it at 9.95.  Plus gratuity I'm sure.

Too each their own, I can say drinks on the ship are not worth the money... seem too may play $12 for one cocktail

Wait...so let me be clear...

 

It is $12.95 and you order anything? or is it $12.95 for Burger and Fries Only? 

 

I will be on Adventurer in a couple of weeks...so...any assistance is appreciated.

 

Thanks

The $12.95 covers unlimited food items for one person, including desserts and soda.  However it does not cover milkshakes.
