An open dining arrangement in both restaurants, with similar menus, works well. There are no speciality dining or set meal sittings. A 24-hour coffee and tea station is located on the Bridge Deck, and the Lido coffee station is available from breakfast until 7 p.m.
Discovery Restaurant: The more formal of the two restaurants, the Discovery on Deck 5 is an attractive venue with an intimate atmosphere and attentive waiter service. A four-course meal is served each evening, and typical starters include shrimp cocktail in Marie Rose sauce, egg Florentine or Caesar salad, followed by a choice of soup. For main courses expect halibut fillet with shrimp and butter sauce, fillet of beef with Cognac and green peppercorn sauce, roast Barbary duck breast with a Grand Marnier and orange sauce, vegetarian nut loaf in fresh tomato and herb sauce, all served with a selection of vegetables. Desserts include almond basket with vanilla ice cream topped with fresh strawberry compote, mango and lemon delice topped with papaya compote or Rothschild Sundae (vanilla ice cream with warm raspberry sauce, whipped cream and chopped nuts). An international assortment of cheeses is also available. Breakfast is from 7 to 9 a.m., lunch from 12:30 p.m. to 1:30 p.m., afternoon tea from 4 to 5 p.m., and dinner from 6:30 p.m. to 9 p.m.
