Cruise Dining

Onboard dining is no longer restricted to set meal times in the ship’s main dining hall. Today's cruises offer so many more options, from gourmet a la carte and intimate supper clubs to casual bistro eateries and room service – whatever and whenever you feel like it.

Inclusive Dining

Meals are included in the cost for all passengers, with supplementary charges payable at speciality restaurants. Today cruise lines understand that passengers want more flexibility in planning their day, so many offer anytime inclusive dining as well as the traditional set meal times with the choice of early or late sittings, it's up to you.

Speciality Restaurants

Food lovers will be in gourmet heaven with restaurants representing a range of global cuisines. From laid back pizzerias to Michelin starred restaurants, you can satisfy your palate in any number of ways. For a more intimate experience, enjoy a private dinner on your balcony with your own waiting staff so you don’t have to lift a finger.

Formal Night

A real cruising tradition, longer cruises (i.e. seven nights or more) generally hold one formal night where dressing up is compulsory in the main dining hall. Formal night is a highlight for many cruisers.

Top tip: Reserve a table at onboard restaurants well in advance to avoid disappointment. With many ships carrying several thousand passengers, onboard restaurants book up quickly. Or, book popular restaurants on formal nights as these tend to be their quietest times.
