The Cupcake Cupboard shop exterior on Freedom of the Seas

When your sweet tooth starts to ache on a cruise, Cupcake Cupboard onboard Royal Caribbean has your sugar fix in the form of whimsical cupcakes. Out-of-the-ordinary flavors in a precious space set this sweet shop apart from the rest.


Ambiance

Cupcake Cupboard gives dessert-seekers a boutique atmosphere to buy, browse or even decorate their own cupcakes. Expect a lot of pink, with traces of mint green in the decor. Most locations feature an actual cupboard, which serves as a display case. While this is a quaint place to shop, there is not a ton of space dedicated to sitting and enjoying your treat. One or two small, square tables with some stools might be available.

Cupcake Cupboard locations are typically found along the Cafe Promenade.
