A Typical Royal Argosy Dinner Experience:
Pier 56, Check in – Check in for your special evening at Pier 56 on Seattle's Waterfront and pick up your boarding passes. We typically begin boarding 60 minutes prior to your cruise.
Welcome Aboard - As you make your way onto the Royal Argosy, you’ll pause for a quick boarding photo. The Captain will greet you at the door and help direct you to your deck where our gracious and friendly staff will escort you to your pre-assigned table. Settle in and relax with a drink or order an appetizer – maybe you’ll want to take a self-guided tour of the ship, or listen to our house band, remember you have the entire evening in front of you!
Bon Voyage - As the ship sets sail your Captain will make some brief safety announcements. Warm bread and smoked salmon spread, in addition to a delicious salad, are brought to your table. Be sure to check with your server for wine selections to complement your meal - perhaps you'll be tempted by a three-glass wine flight.
Bon Appetit – Shortly after departure we invite you to enjoy the buffet at your leisure – be sure to go back for seconds! Your meal includes both seated and buffet elements to allow you to enjoy the evening at your own pace. You can explore the outer decks when the mood strikes!

Entertainment - Our house band will entertain you with popular songs from the 60’s through today. Anticipate dancing to your favorite songs - the band will gladly accommodate most requests. We encourage you to wander the outer decks. Take your beverages topside, stroll the outdoor space and drink in spectacular skyline views.
Dessert – About two hours into your cruise, your wait staff will tempt you with your dessert selection. Coffee and tea service are also included. Perhaps you'll have time for a nightcap before the Captain returns to port.
