Dining

The usual meal times are:
• Breakfast from 07.30 to 10.00 (open seating)
• Lunch from 12.00/13.00 (open seating)
• Dinner times vary according to the itinerary. Typically, dinner starts at 18:00, and there will be a variety of
seating options available (times advised on board).

Full board begins with a buffet dinner on departure from Bergen and ends with brunch on the arrival day
back in Bergen. The food is mainly Norwegian and breakfast is buffet style with a selection of cold meats,
cheese, eggs, cereals, and fruit. Lunch is the famous Cold Table with a choice of fish dishes, cold meats,
salads, a selection of hot dishes, desserts, and fruit. Dinner is a three-course set meal from our coastal menu;
there is not usually a choice of menu. Occasionally the Cold Table may be served in the evening and the set
meal for lunch.

It is safe to drink the tap water on board. Still and sparkling mineral water, soft drinks, and wine can be
purchased in the restaurant. Arctic Superior and Expedition Suites guests have water packages included in
the price of their cabins. Wine packages are only included for Expedition Suites guests, but it is possible to
purchase these packages on board, or upgrade by pre-purchasing the packages before departure.

Specific diets, e.g. vegetarian, gluten-free etc., are generally available if sufficient notice (at least two weeks)
has been given to us in order to advise the ship. All ships are fully licensed; the price level is the same as on
mainland Norway. Restaurant opening hours vary depending on season and number of guests on board.
Further information is available on board.
