About This Line
P&O has jumped on the choice bandwagon in dining and offers a somewhat dizzying number of options, although actual menu offerings vary quite a bit across the fleet. Club Dining, with assigned seating, is available on all ships; Select Dining in specialty restaurants requires reservations and carries a small charge; Freedom Dining is an open seating dinner offered in certain restaurants on Oceana, Azura, and Ventura. Meals are tailored to Western tastes with celebrated international chefs Marco Pierre White and Atul Kochhar. Requests for special diets such as diabetic, fat-free, vegetarian, and gluten-free can be satisfied with advance notice. A children's menu is available, and baby food can be provided on request. Afternoon tea is served daily. There is a charge for items ordered from room service, which is still available 24 hours a day, but every cabin has free tea/coffeemakers.
