However, even on Formal evenings, more Elegant Casual attire is perfectly acceptable at certain alternative dining venues.

FORMAL: Black tie or formal dark suit for gentlemen. Evening dress or other formal attire for ladies. Military or Award decorations may be worn on formal nights. A range of gentlemen’s formal wear is available to hire or purchase on board the ship.

ELEGANT CASUAL: Jacket, no tie required for gentlemen. Dress, skirt or trousers for ladies. No jeans.

On shore, you’ll want comfortable clothes for sightseeing. The type of clothes you bring depends on the itinerary. Even in warmer climates, it can get cold on deck, so some warmer clothes are always advised. It is advisable to bring a lightweight raincoat and umbrella, and you’ll want to make sure you have proper attire for visiting shrines, churches, mosques and temples (i.e., leg and shoulder coverings for both men and women).

Norwegian Cruises


Dine the Way You Want
We believe lunch is when you're hungry. Same goes for breakfast and dinner. You'll never have to drag yourself out of bed for a forced breakfast seating at 7:45 am or interrupt whatever you're doing so you can make it to a dinner seating precisely at 5:45 pm. We also think you should eat with whomever you want so we'll never choose your dining partners for you. Want to meet someone new? We can arrange that, too.

More Restaurants Than Days of the Week
Don't be misled by other cruise lines' dining 'options.' They really come down to some fast-food choices or one big dining hall where you often have to eat with strangers. NCL has a wide variety of actual restaurants with great, new signature dishes in every one. And, with up to 13 different restaurants and dining rooms on board, like Le Bistro, NCL's exclusive French bistro, and Cagney's, NCL's scrumptious steakhouse, you'll find something to satisfy your every craving, every night of your cruise.

Steak and a dry martini after a great day of snorkeling. Sushi to follow lounging by the pool all day. French or Mediterranean after a long day of shopping. Tapas or Tex-Mex before you hit the casino. Pasta and a nice bottle of wine post-sightseeing. Teppanyaki between swimming and checking out the jazz singer. Made-to-order specials at the buffet's action stations when you're finished with your massage. Burgers and pizza to celebrate your youngest's birthday. Or perhaps the most romantic meal of all served in the private seclusion of your balcony. With so many delicious choices, you can certainly eat whatever you want.

Save the Tie for the Boardroom
Freestyle Cruising is not too dressy, not too casual. We call it 'resort casual.' You'll call it being on vacation. By day, almost anything goes. Khakis, skirts, jeans, casual tops, shorts, or whatever are all fine. Casual is perfect in NCL's restaurants too. Even if you've just been at the pool and don't feel like changing, no worries. Swimwear with a cover-up is fine at the buffet and outdoor restaurant. At night, it's relaxed all over the ship. When you're ready for dinner, it's collared shirts and pants or nice jeans for guys. Slacks or jeans, dresses, skirts and tops are perfect for women. Kids 12 and under are welcome to wear nice shorts in NCL's restaurants whenever. If you want to dress up and add a little glamour when you dine out, feel free - we've reserved a restaurant just for that. And remember to pack a sweater - air conditioning can be chilly.

Best 'Buffet' at Sea
Forget about those cafeteria lines. Our buffet has a huge salad bar and 'action stations' where you can get made-to-order specialties. Start your day with freshly squeezed juices, a Bloody Mary or a refreshing Bellini. Have meat carved exactly to your liking or choose your favorites to be thrown on the grill. Enjoy a pasta dish made with all of your favorite ingredients, then try sweet dessert crepes with fillings of your choice. You can even whet your appetite the day you board with a sampling of dishes from all of NCL's great restaurants, and, when you need a little boost or just a place to relax, head to the Java Café for delicious Lavazza coffee drinks and special desserts.

Lobster Galore
Lobster lovers of the world will rejoice because NCL has lobster dishes every single night. And choose one night of your cruise for an absolute lobster feast.

Don't Go Away Hungry
Breakfast doesn't stop being the most important meal of the day just because it's the last day of your trip. So take your time. Relax. Enjoy a delicious breakfast and start your day off right. Leave the waking up super early, waiting in a crowded public area then waiting some more to the other cruise lines. When it's time to go, we'll let you know.

From traditional fine dining in Seabourns open-seating Restaurant and an eclectic and adventurous menu in Restaurant 2 to themed dining in The Colonnade and more casual fare in the Patio Grill, Seabourns acclaimed made-to-order dining experience is enhanced by Seabourn's personal custom of welcoming you like an honored guest – whose preferences are carefully noted, then thoughtfully indulged every night. Perhaps that's why Seabourn has been honored with the prestigious International Five Star Diamond Award for the last 13 years and was ranked Top Cruise Line Food in Conde Nast Traveler's 2007 Reader's Poll.

Seabourn yachting life offers you a choice of up to five dining venues. Enjoy breakfast, lunch or dinner in one of Seabourn's traditional restaurants. Dine on deck in one of Seabourn's al fresco eateries, or at your request, you can have dinner from The Restaurant served course-by-course in your suite, complete with white linens, fine china and silver service.

Don't miss special culinary events like Shopping with the Chef at local markets in select ports around the world. Learn from the masters of the Chef's Circle as guest chefs from well-known restaurants share their culinary secrets. Enjoy tempting treats and rare estate teas, compliments of Seabourn's popular Seabourn to a Tea, complete with white glove service and relaxing, live music.

If guests have special dietary needs, Seabourn must be advised at time of booking or, at the latest, six weeks before sailing. Every effort will be made to comply.

No matter what your dining pleasure, Seabourn's award-winning staff is there for you - when you want... with what you want.

Viking Cruises


The Restaurant
With diverse locations to choose from, every dining area on Viking Star has been carefully considered. Viking Star's crown jewel is The Restaurant, with the widest choice of culinary offerings. You'll want to return again and again because Viking created a daily-changing menu highlighting local cuisine so you can explore regional specialties. Your menu is ever evolving to reflect the seasons, your destinations, and locally sourced ingredients. But you have other options as well.

The Chef's Table
Perhaps one night reserve an intimate experience at The Chef's Table for a specially prepared tasting menu complete with wine pairings.

The Italian Grill
Or make a reservation for the Tuscan experience of The Italian Grill to try antipasti; the perfect locally inspired pasta or a steak in the legendary Florentine tradition.

Wherever you find yourself on board, Viking's dining rooms offer menus that incorporate ingredients freshly gathered from local markets, and an authentic local feeling. And of course, Viking Concierge is always on hand to recommend a great local restaurant. But there's even more dining choices: on Viking Star you have options beyond our traditional restaurants.

Viking Deli
Indulge in Scandinavia specialties at the Viking Deli in the Explorers' Lounge, surrounded by two-story ocean views.

World Cafe
When travel whets your appetite, visit the World Café where a wide variety of cravings can be fulfilled. Like Viking Star herself, choice is the theme of the day - from American classics to Chinese to sushi or continental European favorites. Here you can choose from a variety of freshly prepared dishes or meats hand-carved to order, and watch the chefs at work. Dine al fresco on a warm summer night, or inside on a cooler day - surrounded by fantastic views.

The Kitchen Table
For a change of pace, since part of your journey is about expanding your horizons, don't forget to try Viking's onboard cooking school and intimate restaurant, The Kitchen Table.

No-Fee Room Service
And for those times when you would rather unplug in your comfortable stateroom and just relax, there's no-fee room service.

So, throughout the ship you will find casual dining options to fit your every mood, from high tea at the Wintergarden or seafood at the al fresco Aquavit Terrace - the choice is yours.


Windstar Cruises


Breakfast
It is 7:30 in the morning. You awake to hear the gentle trade winds filling the sails. The smell of freshly-brewed Colombian coffee and buttery croissants lures you topside to the Veranda. It's breakfast al fresco, full service or buffet-style, anytime till 9:30. No need to hurry. Or if you prefer, linger over a continental breakfast served in the privacy of your stateroom. Whichever is fine with us. After all, this is what the good life is all about: doing what you please, when you please.
Lunch
Again, the choices are many in the Veranda. Choose the sumptuous, seemingly endless buffet. Or, order from the lunch menu.
Dinner
In the evening, Windstar turns the spotlight to our elegant, wood-paneled restaurant. Here, the dining room manager seats you, but where is your decision. There are no preassigned tables or first or second seating. When you dine and with whom are entirely up to you. (Seating usually begins at 7:30 p.m. and will be printed in the ship's daily program.) On the Wind Surf, you can enjoy the lively Degrees, featuring special themed dinners like Italian, Indonesian, Steak House and an eclectic choice of wines. The evening attire onboard Windstar is specified as 'casual elegance'- the emphasis weighted heavily on the former. The cuisine is exquisite ... a unique creation of light and savory entrees using fresh native food and tropical accents. What will it be? Pear and goat cheese salad with prosciutto? Roasted eggplant and garlic soup? Grilled ahi tuna with Asian vegetables and a ginger pink peppercorn sauce? Or perhaps a mocha and chocolate terrine with almond sauce? To all this, Windstar adds a fine selection of vintage wines. Windstar offers Sail light and vegetarian recipes, specially created by our Chefs on board. In addition, our Executive Chef on board is available to help you choose light fare upon request.

Special Diets
