Dining

STELLAR BY NAME.
STELLAR BY REPUTATION.

In our main dining room the main course is the main attraction! Enjoy freshly-prepared entrees and chef-crafted favorites like Slow Roasted Prime Rib or Honey Glazed Salmon.

Set sail for the delectable with desserts so delightful that we could only call them "Sweet Endings."

We even offer a hearty breakfast, combining a sit-down atmosphere with a breakfast bar. And because we believe that variety is the spice of life, there’s a different menu for each day of your trip.

OPTIONS FOR EVERY MEAL
OF THE DAY

 

There’s something for everyone at our buffet, even for the pickiest of palettes. That’s why at the Ocean View Buffet you’ll find options for every meal of the day. Stay up for our late-night buffet, which serves Mediterranean mezze on the first night and Mexican favorites the second.

Rise and shine for a tempting selection of breakfast foods or ask our chefs to customize an omelet just for you. Come back and mix it up with dishes from our salad, pasta, or carving stations. And at night, enjoy made to order pizza! Whether it’s hot or cold, new or familiar, vegetarian or carnivore, we’ve got you covered.

 

BACKYARD BARBECUING
ON THE HIGH SEAS!

 

Take the plunge with your favorite barbeque dish at the Plunge Grill. Located right by the pool, the Plunge Grill gets your food hot and ready for when you’re done with your dip. We’re firing up juicy and tender hamburgers, hot dogs, various kinds of sausages, and more grilled favorites. Wash it down with your favorite beer and boom, you’re in cookout heaven! Not an early riser? The plunge grill also offers a late breakfast buffet.
