Cruise Dining & Restaurants


What sets us apart from other cruise lines? Our commitment to innovative, fresh and fantastic food is sourced through Australian suppliers and farmers. With up to 21 different dining experiences and several restaurants to choose from across the fleet, we're plating up everything from casual cruise menus to connoisseur cuisines, and you can decide when, where and how you dine.

With P&O Cruise dining, you’re not stuck in the same seat for every single meal. You can choose from complimentary dining options, speciality restaurants and a few P&O favourites. Every meal is cooked to order, prepared using the freshest ingredients for every Cruiseling to enjoy.
