Cuisine and Dining on Britannia

Speciality Dining: Onboard there is a wide array of eating options including three main signature restaurants. You can choose between freedom dining at the Peninsular and Meridian– where you can choose when you eat each day as you please or club dining at Oriental restaurant, where you will enjoy the same company at the same table each evening. For the wine enthusiasts, visit The Glass House for the perfect wine match for each course as selected by celebrity wine expert Olly Smith and drink in those sea views.

Casual Dining: Whether fine dining suits you or you are looking for something more casual, there are plenty of other options available including Grab and Go for pre-packed meals or the Lido Grill for classics such as freshly baked pizza. Another tempting idea is afternoon tea, served daily in the main restaurants- pop along for some tea or coffee and the all-important clotted cream and jam scone.

    What our customers say

    "I booked a Fred Olsen cruise with IGLU last month and was so impressed by the service I received. The staff member I spoke to was Kimberley and she was exemplary. Capable, kind, professional, patient, friendly and knowledgeable. She went through every step of the way calmly and thoroughly. IGLU were recommended to me by friends and I have no hesitation in passing the recommendation along. Well done IGLU and thank you. "

    (March 2019)

    "So easy to deal with, I studied the Cruise I wanted, did my research with different company's and returned to Iglu. I had three quotes matching Iglu’s cost, but with one phone call they beat the price themselves by £40 without me even asking, how easy was that! "
