Food & Drinks

There is one dining room located on Deck 4 which offers three meals per day. While mealtimes may change due to landings and wildlife encounters, you’ll always be assured of excellent quality food during our time on World Explorer.

There is one seating for all passengers at breakfast, lunch, and dinner and the restaurant has an open seating policy that encourages passengers to mingle with like-minded Antarctic explorers and share their experiences.

An assortment of freshly baked cookies and/or pastries are offered each afternoon. There is also a selection of hot and cold snacks available in the lounge during cocktail hour, expedition activities permitting.

Breakfasts and lunches are normally served buffet-style, while dinners are served plated. À la carte meals are made at the time of your order, allowing the chefs to prepare each dish to your individual needs. Working in a small kitchen, the chefs are able to monitor and control the quality of food being served, ensuring you receive top-quality meals during the course of your expedition.
