We are proud to offer café service on board our ships. The menu may vary depending on the line, ship and season you are traveling on, but during the high season there is usually a greater variety to choose from. However, we would like to point out that we cannot

ensure that the full range of the cafe menu always is available.

We strive to provide high quality coffee, tea, hot chocolate, and KRAV-labeled fruit on ships with open catering. We understand that allergens may be a concern for some customers and our staff are happy to answer questions about our café offerings.

It is important for us that you as a customer feel safe and secure when traveling with us. It is important to note that some ships do not have open cafes during certain parts of the year, which ships are affected.
