Two personalities

The difference between La Terrazza in the day and at night is striking.

Breakfast and lunch

The food is served buffet style. Each meal offers extensive buffet selections and prepared-to-order specialties. Staffers carry your filled plate to your table.


La Terrazza magically mutates into a sit-down, dimly-lit romantic Italian restaurant with a la carte menu and waiter service. It's very popular and reservations are required.

Two venues

One's inside, the other is outdoors.

Dining room

It has tablecothed tables and a sophisticated decor.  The front half of the room has large ocean-view windows.

Aft deck

Your alfresco meal is enhanced by the ocean vista and fresh sea breeze. Many passengers relish eating here.

Hidden self-service area

The buffet stations are in an adjacent room that cannot be seen by the seated diners. This enriches the dining experience.

Other pointers

Don't miss the eye-popping nine-hole antipasto plate at dinner. Complimentary glasses of red and white Italian wines are freely poured at lunch and dinner.
