tips you can trust
The room has a sophisticated, comfortable ambiance and seats about two hundred.
There are no reservations. You eat when, where, and with whom you wish.
It is open for a la carte breakfast, lunch, and dinner. Each meal has its own menu.
The dinner meal draws many people, but breakfast and lunch are normally lightly attended.
The menu changes daily and features famous specialties, such as Black Angus Beef Carpaccio, Bouillabaisse, Foie Gras Terrine, and Grilled Lobster Tail.
Of course, a wide variety of popular non-international items like grilled steak, fish, and chicken breast are always available.
Wellness dishes appear on the breakfast, lunch, and dinner menus.
The chef will prepare a favorite dish of yours if the kitchen has the ingredients onboard - and you make your request at least 24 hours in advance.
Knowledgeably chosen red and white house wines by the glass are poured at lunch and dinner - and are complimentary. Ordering from the ship's connoisseur list is extra.
It has two distinct personalities. The difference between day and at night is remarkable.
At breakfast and lunch, the service is buffet style. There are extensive buffet selections and prepared-to-order specialties. After you fill your plate, a staffer carries it to your table.
At dinner, the room magically mutates into a sit-down, dimly lit romantic Italian restaurant with waiter service and a la carte Italian menu. The evening meal is very popular and reservations are required.
La Terrazza has two venues - one's inside, the other is on the restaurant's outdoor deck. Your al fresco meal is enhanced by the fresh sea breeze and ocean vista, which is why many passengers love eating outside.
It's one of the finest restaurants on the high seas. Le Champagne features regional and seasonal a la carte specialties - and high quality wines. A sommelier gives expert wine-pairing advice. There is a $30 per person cover charge, which does not include specialty wines (but you can order the ship's daily house wines gratis).
