The formal two-deck restaurant serves open-seating breakfast and lunch; evening meals are served in two traditional assigned seatings or an open-seating option that allows you to be seated any time the main restaurant is open. The casual Lido buffet offers breakfast and lunch. For dinner, it has made-to-order entrées, a carving station, and an array of side dishes. Each ship features a poolside grill for burgers and other fast-food favorites; the spa café serves lighter fare. A specialty coffee bar also serves teas and pastries for an extra charge. Each ship has an upscale alternative restaurant that specializes in tableside food preparation and houses a demonstration kitchen and wine cellar (requiring reservations and a per-person cover charge). A café that offers crepes and other light bites and a steak house, both with a cover charge, are being introduced on one ship a year, which started with Constellation in 2010. Also being added is an extra-charge ice-cream bar offering authentic gelato. Pizza delivery and 24-hour room service augment dining choices.
