An Elegant Setting The Grand Dining Room is a study in stateliness, a tribute to the spirit of Europe’s marquee 5-star hotel restaurants that inspired its dignified yet convivial ambiance. Remarkably, as sumptuous as the Grand Dining Room’s decor is, guests always feel completely at ease within its grandeur. Much of that is a direct reflection of the formally attired and classically trained wait staff, graciously serving course after course of Europeaninspired cuisine or delectable alternatives such as healthy, savory Canyon Ranch® selections or Jacques Pépin’s signature dishes.

A CLASSIC STEAKHOUSE IN EVERY SENSE Polo Grill embodies all the elements of a classic steakhouse, expressing them with timeless reverence. Each course stands as the very definition of a time-honored favorite, most notably the beef dishes, all of which are USDA Prime and dry-aged for 28 days to enhance tenderness and flavor.

SO AUTHENTIC YOU COULD BE IN ITALY In Italian, Toscana means Tuscan, and just as Tuscan cuisine evolved from rich family traditions, many of our recipes originated with the mothers and grandmothers of our own Italian culinary staff. Presented on elegant, custom-designed Versace china, each dish is a masterpiece that exemplifies the essence of Tuscany and celebrates Italy’s culinary passion.

A PASSION FOR FRENCH CUISINE Comfortable and eclectic, the ambiance is pure French, as is the cosmopolitan yet wonderfully embraceable cuisine. Luscious aromas waft from the gleaming show rotisserie, where chicken, duck, pork, rib and veal roasts slowly turn. Each dish is a classic, ingeniously interpreted by Master Chef PĂŠpin. Available onboard Marina and Riviera

bold, contemporary aSIAN CUISINE With a nod to feng shui, Red Ginger radiates harmony and tranquility. The interior simply glows with ebony woods, a waterfall wall and striking, modern Asian artworks. To complement the stunning decor, Red Ginger’s chefs have created contemporary interpretations of Asian classics. In Red Ginger, the gustatory pleasures are as striking as the visual ones. Available onboard Marina and Riviera

THE MENU AND MOOD evolve Informal and carefree, The indoor/outdoor Terrace CafĂŠ is wonderfully inviting any time of day. First thing in the morning, the room is infused with natural sunlight, stimulating the appetite for the sumptuous breakfast selections. Come lunch, the expansive menu of international dishes changes entirely. Evenings, the cuisine takes on a local flair such as a hearty paella in Spain, savory osso bucco in Italy or a rich beef bourguignon in France.

COME AS YOU ARE AND DINE ALFRESCO Sometimes the ultimate luxury is casual dining. Chefs grill gourmet burgers, tangy barbecue and succulent seafood to order, accompanying them with side dishes like garden-fresh salads and crispy, hand-cut truffle fries dusted with grated aged parmesan. Then top it off with a decadent dessert such as a creamy homemade gelato, a made-to-order hot fudge sundae or a thick hand-dipped milkshake.

TEA TAKES CENTER STAGE With a classical string quartet softly playing, our staff glides through the room presenting four-tiered carts filled with finger sandwiches, colorful petits fours, scones with clotted cream, exquisite desserts and of course, a tempting selection of teas.
