It is the only restaurant onboard that is open for breakfast, lunch and dinner (in fact, breakfast is only offered in Waves). It is situated behind the Reception on Deck 5 and though at the aft it does not have windows at the back, only porthole windows, so it is quite dark with low ceilings and deep red decor. Tables vary in size from 2- to 8-person. Waves is buffet style, but has an a la carte menu for Eggs Benedict and omelets, for example. Hot dishes include buttermilk pancakes, cinnamon raisin French toast, fresh-baked pastries and Belgian waffles. The "MSC Express" meal consists of bacon, sausages, hash browns and eggs. There are also yoghurts, cereals, toast, tea and coffee.
