Once limited to a few select, calorie-laden options, dining on cruise ships has become just as versatile, if not more so, than many vacation packages on land. Those who bear dietary restrictions, long for more variety or are just picky eaters have begun to expand their palates with a growing number of alternative restaurants and healthy accommodations.
Cruise Critic will be kicking off Dining Week on June 3, 2013 — letting you in on the “meat and potatoes” of cruise ship dining. We’ll show you where to find the best options for what you’re looking for, along with:
Tips for eating healthier onboard;
How to make the most of your main dining room experience;
Our top-14 alternative restaurants;
How to follow dietary restrictions without sacrificing taste;
Our readers’ top cruise recipes;
But before you head into the kitchen to experiment, check out our dining-themed cruises, where you can explore international wine and cuisine, learn how to prepare Michelin-style dishes alongside renowned chefs or even wine and dine to the musical performances of Kenny Loggins, Nestor Torres and World Class Rockers.
We’ll also be keeping you tuned into the latest trends, like alfresco dining, gluten-free menus and celebrity chefs outside the luxury niche. Plus, the results of our Cruisers’ Choice Awards are revealed. Did your favorite make the list?
Visit this space Monday to find out more about all things foodie, and pop over to our home page Monday morning to see what Dining Week surprises we have in store.
