Can someone tell me which dinning options do you pay extra for on the Explorer Of The Seas and how much more do you pay.
To answer the question which do you pay for: Johnny Rocket's has a nominal surcharge of $4.95 per person.
You will pay for ice cream at Ben & Jerry's, and any speciality coffees (Lattes, cappuccino,etc) & teas at the Cafe Promenade.
The speciality restaurant Portofino has a surcharge. It's $20-$25 p.p.

Meals in the main dining room and at the Windjammer cafe are complimentary. There is no charge for ice cream served on the menu in the dining room. Also, coffee in the main dining room or at the Windjammer is complimentary. You should also find regular coffee served 24hours complimentary. There's no reason you need to pay extra for any food if you don't choose to do so.
