Can someone explain to me how the Supper Club works, and is it really worth the extra money it costs? Would you include your kids - or just make it a grown-up thing? How much extra does it cost? We will be on the Glory for the 1st time. The other ships we've been on didn't have the supper club option.
THANKS!

lharry, We dined at David's Supper Club on Pride.

You will make reservations for the evening of your choice. Many times the supper clubs fill up quickly.

On Pride, the supper club charged $30 per person. It is more refined, in my opinion. There was a pianist. Fresh flowers adorned the tables and room. Better cuts and varieties of meat. Service is attentive and one on one. Attention is paid to every detail.

In all honesty, I would not bring young children into the supper club. It is more of a quiet, intimate setting.

I compare it to dining at Morton's or Smith and Wollensky's.

I would recommend it.

lharry, by all means do it at least once on your cruise. I haven't been on Carnival yet, but Princess has the same concept. The regular dining rooms are great; but the supper clubs are just exquisite.

And I would echo A'ndrea's advice about doing it without the children. They probably would not appreciate it, and it's a chance for a very special time for the two of you.

dr, still haven't gotten to Ruth's Chris. I've heard it's just as good as the two I mentioned.

We went to both Morton's and S & W's in Las Vegas. Both excellent food. My heart and our wallets don't allow it too often though.

Unfortunately, I am a regular at the one in Birmingham. Mitchell is always our waiter and we always have table number 17 on the gazebo overlooking the koi pond. (Julie likes to throw bread over the side and watch the fish fight for it.) The average steak is 28oz. of sizzling, perfectly marbled, prime beef broiled at 1300 degrees with butter. aaaaaaaaahhhh Well, I guess dinner is decided for tonight.

I stayed at the Embassy Suites in B'ham many times last fall, while Vanessa was in rehab at Lakeshore. It is nice to stay in a hotel where Ruth's Chris does the room service. No wait for a table and a fabulous steak dinner served in your room!

Iharry:

I was on the Carnival Glory last November. The Supper Club on board the Glory is called "The Emerald Room". It is upstairs in the Red Sail Restaurant. The Red Sail Restaurant is the main cafeteria/buffet(casual dinning area) on the Lido Deck. Near the dessert buffet inside the Red Sail you will find the stairs going up to the Emerald Room. I did not eat in the Emerald Room, but I sneaked up those stairs and had a peek. It looked really nice. They do require reservations and charge between $25 to $30 per person/per visit (I do not remember the exact price but it was a flat fee). I talked to some of the passengers who did go. They said it was worth it. I was kicking myself for not going; but I was having such a good time in the main dinning room.

If memory serves me correctly, there was one of the Food and Beverage employees sitting at a table with displays about the Emerald Room somewhere on the Promenade Deck near the casino. That F&B Employee was taking reservations for The Emerald Room at that table.

If it is not like that during your cruise, I suppose you can always ask the Purser's Desk (a.k.a. Front Desk) where to make the reservations.

Hey everyone:

In case you are curious about some of the previously mentioned steakhouses, here is a link to them:

Link to Ruth Chris Steakhouse

Link to Morton's Steakhouse

And while I am doing these steak house links, I might as well throw in a local favorite in the Central Florida area:
