The dining experience onboard a cruise ship is just that - an experience. You can find anything from gourmet cuisine prepared by world-renowned chefs, to a slice of pizza. There are many dining options offered throughout the day.
The main dining offers a formal dining experience with beautiful table settings and impeccable service. You will have the full dining experience with several courses and options from which to select.
A casual dining area is offered for individuals who enjoy a more casual environment with extended hours. Typical options include buffet-style meals with sandwiches, soups, salad bar and hot meal options. And you can get your fix of hamburgers and hot dogs with poolside casual dining.
Many cruise lines will offer a specialty dining experience on most newer ships. Reminiscent of ocean liners of the past, these distinctively elegant restaurants offer a dining experience like no other at sea. Savor the five-course menu creations prepared tableside with a medley of aromatic ingredients. Relish the timeless ambiance of an intimate dine-in wine cellar. Each restaurant is equally spectacular offering its own taste of history and unparalleled service.
Room service is an option on some cruise lines, where you can select casual dining options brought right to your room. In addition, cruise lines offer late night snacks for those enjoying the evening's entertainment.
For those with dining restrictions, special meals can be requested so that you can also enjoy the cruising experience. Visit the Special Needs section of this Web site for more details.
