The Dining Experience

From Executive Chefs to talented bar staff, dining and drinks on board are designed with you in mind. Our carefully crafted menus blend traditional fare with locally inspired dishes, giving you a taste of the finer things in life. And you will enjoy exceptional service and authentic flavours every day, as outstanding cuisine shouldn't have to come at a high price.

We’ve got venues for every mood, from the elegant Buckingham and Holyrood (Ambition) restaurants offering sophisticated options catered to all, to Borough Market where flavours from around the world come together, allowing you to craft your own unique dining experience.

Why not expand your taste buds at one of our speciality restaurants? We have Saffron*, offering exceptional Indian fusion cuisine, and premium fine dining in Sea & Grass* and a taste of the Mediterranean in Lupino's* (Ambition).

Then there is the pinnacle of dining with Ambassador, The Chef's Table*, which includes an exclusive galley tour, and the Executive Chef walking you through every course, talking about the inspiration behind the dish and its preparation.

Breakfast and lunch are generally served on an open seating basis, giving you and your appetite plenty of choice. Please note on board Ambition, at breakfast you can expect a full buffet with one special served to the table and for lunch there will be starter, soup and desert served buffest style with the main course served to the table.  With dinner, we operate two sittings, which can be requested when booking your cruise. If you have any dietary requirements, we can easily accommodate - just let us know in advance.
