Wonderland Imaginative Cuisine presents adventurous dining in an Alice in Wonderland-inspired setting. This Royal Caribbean restaurant's menu is a dreamscape of creatively presented modern dishes created using molecular gastronomy techniques.

Take a step away from traditional cruise dining and transform your experience. While the main dining room has delightful food and the buffet can curb your hunger, the Wonderland restaurant is a hypnotic experience that captures your attention as soon as you enter.

Cruisers immerse themselves in a well-executed portrayal of Wonderland while dining on foods that match the environment of Lewis Carroll’s wonky world.

From the moment you walk in the door, you'll know you've passed through the looking glass.

Wonderland's whimsical decor includes mismatched furniture, kaleidoscopic visuals on the chairs and trippy neon lights. But it's not just your surroundings that will have you feeling like your world has just gone topsy-turvy.

Menus are blank at first but slowly reveal their bounty of dishes divided into six elements: sun, sea, ice, earth, fire and dreams.

Plates feature dry ice, edible foam, unexpected flavors and shapes that defy the imagination. Expect to hear giggles, oohs and ahhs while dining; Royal Caribbean's Wonderland is as much about the experience as the food.

Still curious? You can catch a sneak peek of the establishment with photos of the Wonderland Imaginative Cuisine on Anthem of the Seas.

The six-course dinner menu features small plate items meant to expand your culinary boundaries. You can choose for yourself or ask the server to create your experience for you.

Fans of simple food might want to avoid Wonderland restaurant, as the menu is chockablock with items like "liquid" olives, crispy crab cones, "vanishing" noodles and truffled eggs served in the shell.

Simpler menu items do exist, though they are often presented unusually. A plate of baby vegetables, for instance, is designed to look like the veggies are growing out of a garden.

Other menu items include slow-cooked baby beets, tempura caviar, red and white tuna sashimi, a duck liver fritter, Cuban pork shank and Key lime lollipops.

Cruisers with dietary restrictions can happily eat at the Wonderland restaurant. You’ll find gluten- and lactose-free and vegetarian options on the menu.
