Cruise Wonderland >> My Cruise Voyages >> Golden Princess (2012 August) >> Dining (Dinner)


Formal dinner is offered in the three non-smoking main restaurants on Golden Princess, which is already included in the cruise fare. Bernini Dining Room at Deck 5 midships is open for Anytime Dining from 17:30 to 22:00 in most evenings, whereas Donatello Dining Room at Deck 6 midships is open for Traditional Dining at 17:30 and for Anytime Dining from 19:30 to 22:00. On the other hand, Canaletto Dining Room at Deck 6 aft has two seatings at 17:45 and 20:00 for Traditional Dining. Actual time may vary based on port times.

In Traditional Dining, passengers are allocated to the same table with the same waiters every evening at a fixed time. If they want to have a more flexible dining schedule, Anytime Dining can be their option in which they can choose to dine when and with whom they wish. Requests for preferences on a particular type of dining can be made at the time of booking on a first-come, first-served basis. Subject to availability, it may also be possible to alter the preferences or seating arrangements onboard through the Maître d'Hôtel on the first day of cruise.

The menus in all the three restaurants have no difference. They may have different themes every day based on the itineraries, but each generally consists of appetizers, soups and salad, main courses and desserts. Pastas and some common dishes are always available as alternative choices.
