The last time we were on an RCI cruise they still weren't charging for Johnny Rockets but from what I saw being wasted I can understand why they put a charge on the food. We strolled in around 2:30 or so just to see what was happening & I had just finished lunch in the dr so I couldn't eat a thing but my wife ordered some fries just to say she tried them. If I order it, I eat it unless it's prepared so badly it's uneatable. This again reflects on my childhood- we never wasted food. If it was put on your plate you ate it.

Rockets has a $4.95 cover charge which includes all you want to eat and I think a couple of the desserts. But there are some desserts that cost more, and of course whatever you drink is at bar prices. However, C&A coupon books have one free visit - but we like Rockets and usually go twice which means we pay for the second visit.

They have good food - and the fries and onion rings are great because they arrive nice and hot. They originally didn't charge for Rockets but the teenagers would mob the place and never leave, which meant other guests couldn't get a seat. It still can be a challenge on the at-sea days if you go at the wrong time. We usually go on in-port days when we can walk right up and get a booth.

Food waste is not entirely on the passengers. The servers at Rockets always seem to keep bringing plates of the fries and rings without asking if you want more.

I don't consider Johnny Rockets a specialty restaurant, I consider it a novelty restraurant—and I love it. I think the best thing that ever happen was the cover charge. It used to be overrun with kids and teenagers and we really never enjoyed it.

For those that say a specialty restaurant is a waste of money, I have to say that if you enjoy it, it's not a waste of money. There are people that spend a lot of money on cigarettes, and don't think it's a waste of money—they just enjoy it.
