Cruise Line Dining

Explore the Different Cruise Line Dining Options


Cruise ship dining has evolved significantly and cruise lines now offer an abundant number of restaurant choices and dining options. One night you may want to enjoy casual dining with the kids and the next night a romantic dinner in an elegant gourmet restaurant. Some ships now offer more than twenty dining venues allowing guests to experience a variety of different flavors and atmospheres each day.

Dining times have also changed. Traditional dining is still available on many cruise lines where guests can choose a specific dining time and table size and usually will enjoy the same wait staff throughout the cruise. In addition to traditional dining guests can now also choose more flexible dining times on most cruise lines. Open dining options allow guests to eat when they want each day in a variety of complimentary restaurants. Reservations can also be made at specialty restaurants, usually for an additional fee.
