Dining

Cuisine on-board the MS Dutch Melody is international, though with some local and regional specialities. You can also enjoy wine, beer or soft drinks with lunch and dinner, and complimentary tea and coffee are available throughout the day. For an extra charge you may order from a selected wine list. The dress code is casual, though some passengers opt for resort casual attire in the evenings.

Restaurant

Kick-start the day on the Dutch Melody with a buffet-style breakfast and maybe have 'the full English' to fortify you on excursion days! If you're back on board for lunch this will be a leisurely three-course affair, while dinners stretch to four courses (there's always a choice of main course). As the restaurant is large enough to seat all guests, you'll never be rushed to finish your dessert and make way for the next sitting.

Sometimes there will be special themed dinners, and if you tend to get peckish as the midnight hour approaches, you'll find late-night snacks in the lounge. Keep an eye out for the Dutch Melody's extra-special chocolate fondant served with cherries as well – it's their signature dish and always gets five stars from guests!
