Food and Drink on the Sea Cloud II

Food onboard is excellent, plentiful, and fresh. It's a mix of international cuisine and specialties from the local areas where we are traveling.

Breakfast and lunch are often buffet style with at least one hot prep station providing omelettes, grilled fish or steak at every meal. Dinner is often more formal, at least when served in the dining room, with multiple courses and plated dining.

Beer and wine flow plentifully and freely for lunch and dinner and champagne is offered at breakfast and to celebrate virtually any event onboard - arriving, setting sail, Captain's Dinner, etc. In fact, on the first full sailing day we didn't have much wind but my mom and I joked that our speed would increase considerably after the guests had polished off dozens of bottles of champagne in only the first 24 hours, considerably lightening our load.

The Captain's Dinner was probably the best I've experienced on any small ship, in no small part because the captain himself was such enjoyable company. However the outdoor BBQs on the deck were the true highlight. Whenever weather allows, lunch and dinner are served out on the deck which has been thoughtfully designed for that purpose with heavy windowed canvas drapings that block the wind, not unlike a giant luxury safari tent. When out on deck there is typically a huge buffet of salads and other cold dishes as well as a grill preparing a variety of fish and meats.
