Foodie adventures in Wonderland – restaurant meets theatre on Royal Caribbean’s Anthem of the Seas

Alice and the Mad Hatter would love it – Wonderland is full of surprises on Royal Caribbean’s Anthem of the Seas. The revolutionary restaurant, pioneered on sister ship Quantum, serves up dish after dish of extraordinary food – a mix of tastes, textures and looks to tease and excite your palate.

The following pictures – in no particular order – are just some of the courses we were served as a large group, building up to my personal favourite of very slow-cooked beef. If this whets your appetite, just imagine what it’s like to eat…
