Clipper Dining Room

Experience complimentary · Cuisine varies

Dine out on a comprehensive menu of international foods that are all prepared by passionate, professional chefs. You’ll be able to taste delights from around the world and go on your own little culinary tour of the places you visit (and some that you don’t). In the morning, you can help yourself to a superb continental spread including a fine selection of toasted English muffins, delicious Danish pastries and flavoursome French croissants. Conversely, you can start the day with a hot breakfast which is cooked exactly to your liking and includes crisp bacon, grilled sausage, smoked salmon and omelettes. When lunch comes around, you will be greeted with the glorious sight of an extensive buffet. Options will include seafood, salads and grilled favourites as you treat your taste buds to an adventure of their own. If the day’s itinerary includes a visit to one of the many beautiful Caribbean or Mediterranean islands that we often frequent, you could find that your lunch is served beach-side and straight from the fiery grill of a barbecue. Perhaps the best culinary offerings are saved for the evening meal though, as the chef treats you to some delicious delicacies that look good on the plate, taste great on the palate and are perfectly complemented by an outstanding selection of fine wines. As you take your seat in our elegant dining room, adorned with evocative seascapes, you will be met with friendly, unobtrusive service from our wonderful crew members.


Entertainment

You are free to do as you wish with your days - and evenings. To entertain you at certain ports, locals are brought onboard to give passengers an authentic taste of the local music and arts.

There are other events and activities, such as the hilarious crab racing contest, that have evolved from Star Clippers' sailing heritage.
