Top 10 Cruise Lines for Specialty Dining

Dining room on Grand Circle Cruise Line's Harmony ship

Dedicated to offering cultural immersion, Grand Circle Cruise Line's dining options reflect the flavors of each region a ship is visiting. While sailing the Dalmatian Coast, for example, you might enjoy pasticada: slow-roasted beef in wine and stuffed with bacon and carrots. Or as you cruise through Greece, the menu might include dolmades and baklava ... perhaps from the chef's own family recipes. Whether plying the rivers of Europe or exploring exotic destinations like Myanmar and Antarctica, each Grand Circle ship is intimate in size and boasts a top-deck dining room for sweeping views. From breakfast looking onto the castles along the Rhine to dinner gazing at the picturesque villages of the Adriatic Sea, every cruise features its own unique charms. In addition, some cruises incorporate cooking demonstrations, and Discovery Series events invite guests to take their appetites ashore to sample local flavors such as Russian vodka or the herbes de Provence.

All meals are included on each Grand Circle Cruise Line voyage, with additional fees for select alcohol and food-related activities. Complimentary wine is included with dinner.
