The humble food truck, borne on a wave of frugality into trendy popularity during the recession, has now washed out to sea. Royal Caribbean Cruises plans to launch the world’s first oceangoing food truck with the November debut of its newest ship, Quantum of the Seas.

The SeaPlex Dog House will serve hot dogs and sausage, part of an entertainment center located near the cruise industry’s first bumper-car arena. Royal Caribbean is also touting a circus school, enclosed basketball court, and roller skating rink among the amenities on the new ship.
