(3:48 p.m. EDT) -- Royal Caribbean is currently trialing a food delivery service on Symphony of the Seas that is driven by its Royal Caribbean app. Through the "Bring Me" feature on the app, cruisers can order pizza from Sorrento's, burgers and hot dogs from Johnny Rockets, chicken fingers from Playmakers and sushi from Izumi and have it delivered almost anywhere.
The service does carry a fee, with each food item costing different prices. Pizza, for instance, costs $5.95 a pie for either cheese or pepperoni, while chicken fingers with French fries costs $3.95. The sushi is the most expensive, costing $12.95 to $17.95 depending on which rolls you want.
Users can have the food delivered to their room, a la room service, or select where on the ship they want it to be delivered. They do this by dragging a virtual "pin" to whatever location on the ship map they'd like the food brought.
Royal Caribbean is not the first cruise line to test ways to enable cruisers to order food from both free and extra-fee venues onboard and have them delivered to anywhere on the ship. Carnival allows cruisers to order pizza and beverages via its app, while Princess Cruises has opened up select food dishes and beverages for ordering via its OceanMedallion technology, with only beverages able to be delivered anywhere and food limited to select areas on deck.
