Imagine crêpes Florentine, pumpkin risotto with truffle oil and lobster with coriander and anise. In each ship’s main restaurant, dining is a special occasion with our renowned seven-course menu, including a different regional Italian specialty each night. We call our medley of fresh Mediterranean flavors, La Cucina Italiana. You’ll take pleasure in the fresh taste of gourmet Italian food served in an elegant European atmosphere.

Each ship offers a varied selection of fine dining and casual venues ranging from the only Chinese restaurant at sea, to a sushi bar, a lively Tex Mex restaurant, and of course, an authentic pizzeria. You can also savor a taste of heavenly delights at our midnight buffet. Then sleep in and enjoy a private breakfast on your balcony. Buon appetito!
