What’s the food like on a cruise ship?

  • There’s a ton of it, available almost 24 hours a day, and it’s all FREE! (Except the few specialty restaurants which charge a small surcharge, if you choose to dine there.)
  • There’s always a huge buffet of amazing-looking desserts – so plan on gaining weight.
  • There’s fancy dining rooms where you can sit down, order off a menu, and have your lunch or dinner served by white-gloved waiters.
  • Or, you can peruse the endless options at a huge buffet that’s open from 6 a.m. to 11 p.m. and just eat as much as you want there, whenever you want.
  • Even at the buffet, there’s always a half dozen protein options, including meat carved off the bone to order. It’s quite nice. Vegan and gluten-free options are also available.
  • There are always beautiful vegetable and salad bars available, so you can keep it clean and healthy if you want to.
