On the ships holding an A la Carte restaurant, our suite guests may eat their breakfast in a la carte style. For dinner, this restaurant (Lindstrøm) will be open for all guests, but for an additional charge for all other guests than suite guests.

Fredheim is the ships third dining option, and will be open all day offering international 'street food'. Included for suite guests only.

From April 2020, soft drinks and the ship wine and beer is included for all meals. Coffee and tea is included throughout the day.

Fredheim Restaurant

Based on the season's best ingredients, the chefs create either three-course dinners or lavish buffets. Being a coastal voyage, seafood dominates the menu, accompanied with fresh vegetables and delicately flavoured sauces. Each dinner ends with traditional desserts, like home-made cakes, puddings, berries or sorbet. Breakfast and lunch is served buffet style, while dinner is a set dinner.
