The way we see it, every dining experience with Avalon is an opportunity to bring your destination to life. We put care into creating every day's menu using fresh, quality ingredients. All prepared to perfection by our culinary artisans.

Dinners become the perfect complement to a day of discovery. We craft our recipes using high-quality, prime-cut beef, fresh fish, and an accompaniment of hand-picked local fruits, vegetables, and garden greens.

The perfect complement to your day's journey is a choice of regional fare. Every dinner features a specialty dish from your destination as well as a choice of wine, including a special wine of the region, selected by a professional sommelier and always complimentary. And on each Avalon cruise, we bring a local chef on board to interact and prepare a special dinner, offering a true taste of the culture of your destination.

And aboard our Suite Ships®, why not take advantage of our new Panorama Bistro - a casual atmosphere offering a variety of regional and tapas-style dishes, hand-paired with local wines.

Our lunches are a reason to return to the ship. Enjoy hand carved meats and expansive buffets including fresh salads and amazing homemade soups. And enjoy a sunny day and lunch with a view courtesy of our Sky Bistro, featuring grilled meats and local favorites. 

Start your day with our extensive breakfast buffet: choose a made-to-order omelet, fresh fruit, or among an assortment of just-baked breads. Or try our daily breakfast special. Up early or sleeping in? No problem. Our Early and Late Riser Continental breakfast ensure you're off to a great start. 

And with Avalon ChoiceSM Dining, our guests can choose their dining experience, morning, noon and night. In the mood for an extensive buffets, al fresco grill or a light lunch? Prefer an à la carte dining experience or a casual dinner in our new Panorama Bistro?
