At A Glance Guide:

  • Selection of dining including traditional dining rooms and round the clock buffets.
  • Al fresco dining on the pool deck — weather permitting
  • Traditional British cuisine and international food themed nights.

Thomson Cruises' dining offers a less formal atmosphere than most British cruise lines. Offering both traditional cruise dining rooms and a more relaxed buffet on all ships throughout the fleet. The larger ships also offer a la carte speciality restaurants to give you more options throughout your cruise.

The cuisine onboard varies from the typically British choices of roast beef or fish and chips, to regional dishes depending on the ship's location — such as moussaka while in Greece or tagine when sailing off the Moroccan coastline.
