The Story of Our Food

When it comes to cruise dining, every dish has a tale to tell

best cruises for food lovers
Food & Wine Magazine

It begins in a little village. Or a big city. Or a tropical island. Our chefs travel from their homes to our ships, bringing family recipes and enthusiasm along with them. They create dishes served by crew members who love to tell stories of their own, about where they’re from and where they’ve been, and hear your stories too. Because food brings people together, especially here.

Dine with friends and family where and when you want.

Pasta preparation being done for an upcoming meal on board a Princess ship

Made from Scratch

It’s bread baked fresh 24-7. Pastries made with only the best ingredients (because you can taste the difference). Steaks aged and cut on board. Homemade pasta rolled and shaped every day. We carefully craft every dish as though we were having you for a meal in our home because, come to think of it, we are.

Dine Like a Local

There’s no better way to experience a place than through its food. So you’ll find regional flavors all around you on board, favorite recipes chefs brought from home or discovered along the way. Think curries from India and homemade pasta from Italy. Seafood in Alaska and street tacos in Mexico. We don’t just say "authentic" we serve it.
