Classic and continental flavor pairings bring the world to your plate.

Welcoming guests from early morning until late in the evening, these informal dining venues are like nowhere else you’ll dine at on board. Wonderfully laidback, no matter what time of day you visit, these dining experiences are anchored around buffet-style self-service, inviting you to indulge as much or as little as you like.

An ideal spot to grab a passing snack between mealtimes or to enjoy a variety of different dishes in a single sitting, you’ll encounter a host of much-loved flavors on every visit, hailing from popular vacation spots around the world.

From continental and cooked breakfasts, served until late morning, to home-style pizzas, hearty roasts, fragrant curries, fresh salads and hand rolled sushi, the choice as always is yours.

Afternoons bring a more informal take on our traditional Afternoon Tea, with a selection of finger sandwiches and mini patisserie accompanied by your choice of hot drink. Dinner offers up a worldly selection of global delicacies to tempt you – with different options available each day.

After 11:30pm the focus switches to winding down before bedtime with cookies and cocoa alongside fast-food inspired favorites, such as succulent lamb Shawarma, crispy fries and chilli tacos – ideal if you’re feeling peckish after dancing in the Queens Room.

Casual dress is welcomed all day, even on Gala Evenings, and we’ll always do our best to offer a choice of dishes to accommodate dietary requirements, with gluten free and vegetarian dishes available. If you have any food allergies or other dietary requirements, please inform us by phone after booking your voyage. Find out more about dietary requirements on board

All buffet dining, no matter your ship, is included in your fare, including select hot and cold drinks.
