  • Cinnamon Restaurant (aft Dining Room, capacity 528 seats, Your Time dining from 6 to 9.30pm). With P&O Freedom Dining there are no set tables or times allowing guests to arrive at the restaurant when they wish and enjoy the same silver-service menu as in the two other MDRs. In case for any reason there is no free table, passengers are provided with pagers to be contacted when one is available. A typical menu consists of wild mushroom risotto or chicken liver parfait to start. Mains include a fish/shellfish dish, vegetarian option as well as one or two meat dishes like braised beef and roast leg of pork. The Classics are also offered, like Caesar salad, tomato soup or prawn cocktail to start, then sirloin steak, breast of chicken and fillet of salmon. A good selection of British puddings (desserts) is also offered such as Bakewell tart, baked treacle tart or sticky toffee pudding. On Formal evenings, starters include specials like oak smoked Scottish salmon or game terrine; mains might include prime fore rib of beef or roast duck (no Classic Favourites are offered on Gala evenings). Champagne Sorbet is usually offered between courses.
