    Embark on a Christmas Culinary Journey With ROYAL CARIBBEAN!

    One of the most extraordinary benefits of traveling with Royal Caribbean during the holy season is that the world comes alive with diverse culinary traditions, and we're here to take you away on a delectable adventure that you can live in person on your next trip with this magnificent Cruise Line.

    From Mexico's Three Kings Cake to Greece's Melomakarona, each dish tells a unique tale steeped in tradition and flavor.

    Three Kings Cake: Mexico

    Celebrate Epiphany in Mexico with the round pastry delight, Rosca de Reyes, or Three Kings Cake. Adorned with red, white, and green dried fruit, symbolizing the Mexican flag, this iconic treat holds a surprise! Yep, it's a cute baby figurine baked inside.

    Whoever discovers it gets the honor of bringing tamales to Candlemas in February.

    Melomakarona: Greece

    In Greece, the holiday season is sweetened with Melomakarona, hand shaped cookies soaked in honey and sugar syrup. For a modern twist, some even come dipped in chocolate!

    Mince Pie: England

    Travel back in time with England's holiday tradition, the Mince Pie. Originating in the 13th century, this pastry marvel evolved from spices brought back by Crusaders. Initially featuring meat, the modern version boasts a delectable mix of spices, dried fruit, and, of course, the variations without meat.

    Pastel: Puerto Rico

    Try this tradition of Pastel in Puerto Rico, a holiday dish bursting with flavors and made with love. Similar to Mexican tamales, Pastel is crafted with plantains, banana leaves, taro root, and a savory filling of ground pork. 

    12 Grapes: Spain
