Of all the amenities provided on cruises, food is definitely one of the highlights. Cruise ships often are referred to as "floating smorgasbords" because of the abundance and selection of food onboard Meals and snacks are available round-the-clock. Start your morning with a wonderful breakfast buffet that will delight you no matter what your breakfast food preference. Lunch and dinner are served in full service dining rooms where you can order right from the menu. In between, there are delectable afternoon and midnight buffets to tempt you. Not only are food offerings endless but many of your meals are prepared by celebrity chefs, so you can count on an all-around pleasurable culinary experience every day, every meal and don't forget desert.

During the day, there are many different places to eat such as in the formal dining room, on deck, in a pizzeria, or at an espresso bar, to name a few. At night, most ships offer several options. Some ships' dining rooms can accommodate all guests at one time, called a "seating." Many ships offer you a choice of several eating times, and others encourage you to come to dinner whenever you like. More traditional ships have two seatings in their formal dining rooms, which differ only by time: typically 6:00 p.m. and 8:30 p.m. To choose, just decide whether you prefer to dine early or late--then have your CRUISES 24/7 Travel Pro request your preference when you book your cruise. Recently, several lines have expanded the dining options on board to allow passengers even more flexibility. Passengers of many ships can choose to dine at night someplace other than the formal dining room, such as in an intimate restaurant that features, for example, Italian, Chinese, Japanese or Southwestern cuisine. And of course, there is always room service!
