Specialty Dining

With traditional a la carte and elegant degustation menus, each cruise liner has a variety of dining options to meet all tastes. Dining at one of the many restaurants on board will also give you the chance to socialise and network with other guests on your cruise.

With coveted celebrity chef restaurants and specialty dining options, it can be difficult to secure a table, especially if you’re on a shorter cruise and want a table at short notice. Although booking in advance is not essential, it eliminates the risk of missing out. A Flight Centre Cruise Specialist can arrange these specialty dining bookings for you. Alternatively, most cruise lines allow you to do this yourself once you have a booking confirmation number via the cruise line’s website. And if you prefer to wait, you can make dining reservations once you’re on board.

On all inclusive cruises, such as Crystal Cruises & Regent Seven Seas, specialty dining is included in the cruise fare. However on most cruise ships, specialty dining restaurants will charge a fee. With the exception of casinos, all cruises are cash free. This means that you don’t need to worry about bringing cash when you’re out to dinner. All bills will be charged to a pre-arranged account that is paid at the end of your cruise.
