Dining onboard Star Clippers is a casual, yet elegant experience that allows you to enjoy delicious meals in an intimate setting. Unlike most other cruise lines, there is no pre-set seating times or arrangements in the dining room, allowing you to sit where, when and with whom you want.
Breakfast onboard Star Clippers Cruises' ships is served from 7:00 until 10:00 and consists of an extensive buffet, featuring continental options, traditional cooked choices, an omelette station and of course fresh fruit, juices and cereals. As with all meals, teas and coffees are readily available and freshly served by the attentive and amiable team of waiters.
Lunches also work with a buffet format, with a wide choice of fresh dishes available from 12:30 to 14:00. Typically around 4 different main options will be offered, along with a carvery station, where a choice of suckling pig, beef, lamb will be served. Rice, pasta, veg, salads and side dishes are always also available to accompany the main courses. A truly magnificent dessert buffet is also served at lunchtime with fresh cakes and pastries as well as traditional puddings.
Dinner is a more formal affair, centred around a six course menu typically including a range of seafood and meat mains such as Chateaubriand or Lobster tails. Wines are available by the bottle while iced water, teas and coffees are readily available. Dinner is served from 7:30 to 9:30 usefully, with the menu being displayed shortly before the mealtime. If any of the options on the menu don't suit, steak frites, and a pasta dish of the day are always available.
In addition, once a voyage, a special themed deck lunch takes place, where typically local themed dishes will be served in the deck bar area, with a backdrop of live music.
