The Emerald Princess cruise ship is a large, mainstream cruise ship with something for everyone when it comes to dining. Princess backs up its "Personal Choice" dining theme with a dozen different venues and dining options available around the clock.

Breakfast starts early on the Emerald Princess, with pastries and beverages available as early as 4 am. One great dining feature is extended hours for breakfast. Since some late-night, partying cruise passengers arise late, buffet breakfast is offered from 6 am until 11:30 am.

Lunch is a casual affair for most Emerald Princess passengers, and they usually dine at one of the buffets or casual pool grills. Breakfast and lunch are also available in the Da Vinci Dining Room.

Dinner offers the most variety for Emerald Princess passengers. First, the Emerald Princess' 3000 passengers can enjoy traditional cruise ship dining at one of two fixed sittings (6:15 pm or 8:30 pm) in the Botticelli Dining Room. Alternatively, they can "dine anytime" between 6 pm and 10 pm at either the Michelangelo or Da Vinci Dining Rooms. The two exceptional specialty restaurants, Sabatini's and the Crown Grill, offer reservation dining for an extra fee. Passengers looking for romance or privacy can enjoy a balcony dinner in their cabin. Those looking for the supreme dining experience on the Emerald Princess should book the Chef's Table dinner, a real treat for anyone who loves to eat and who loves interesting, delicious cuisine. And, it's a great show! Finally, if you're in a hurry to eat or just want a casual meal, there's always a buffet open for dinner on the Emerald Princess.

Let's take a more detailed look at each of these dining options on the Emerald Princes.
