When it comes to dining we lay on a special early tea, where the time and location will be confirmed once you are on board, with children’s favourites to suit younger tastes.  If you prefer, the relaxed, informal buffet is available from early morning to late evening and has a wide selection of dishes.  If you’d rather all dine together in the main restaurant, that’s great fun for families too with children’s menus available.
