Cruise and Maritime Voyages
About This Line
Cruise and Maritime’s fleet does not aim for haute cuisine; rather, it provides well-prepared meals that lean toward basic ingredients incorporated into traditional and international-themed menus. Breakfast is open seating, with a limited à la carte option, or buffet-style with an egg and omelet station, fruits, cereals, pastries, yogurt, and juice. Lunch is also open seating with a menu of hot and cold dishes, sandwiches, and a salad bar. Dinner offers multicourse full-service or buffet meals. A wide variety of appetizers, soups, salads, meat and vegetarian entrées, breads, and desserts keep passengers satisfied. There are daily fish specials and more bold flavors on theme nights. The occasional lack of proper temperature control can be an issue. Late-night snacks and special occasions such as the Captain’s Welcome and Farewell dinners aim to please the most demanding cruiser. There's also a traditional afternoon tea service that faithfully includes homemade sandwiches, scones, creams, and cakes, not to mention tea. Drinks, wine, and spirits are available throughout the day at additional cost. Complimentary tea and coffee are available from 6 am to 10 pm.
