All meals are prepared with fresh, seasonal, and locally sourced ingredients (from local suppliers). Tables as capacity are 2-4-6-seat.
The aft-located Bistro (adjacent to Verdastro) is the boat's casual restaurant and an alternative dining option for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. Passengers can order items from two a la carte menus or sample the ship's daily buffet food offerings. Bistro's menus are changed twice per voyage.
