The cruise industry may be all abuzz about specialty restaurants, but complimentary main dining rooms are still wonderful culinary options. Many of them also happen to be spectacularly well designed venues, so here is our list of the seven most beautiful at sea.
Britannia Restaurant, Queen Mary 2, Cunard Line
Cunard Line’s Queen Mary 2 is already a gem as the last true ocean liner afloat today, and its Britannia Restaurant similarly hearkens back to a time of vintage glamour on the high seas with its art deco sconces, maritime wall tapestry and vaulted curved skylight ceiling. The ship’s unique mezzanine levels even ensure the room is three decks tall but wonderfully terraced to spread seating across only two.
The Dining Room, Koningsdam, Holland America Line
When hospitality designer Adam D. Tihany designed Holland America Line’s Koningsdam, he took inspiration from music, and The Dining Room is an elegant space exhibiting curved structural ribbing reminiscent of the braces inside a hollow acoustic instrument. The space is also pleasantly brighter than previous Holland America ships with an unexpected but harmonious color combination of merlot and yellow offsetting the cream paneling.
Grand Dining Room, Riviera, Oceania Cruises
