Meals & Beverages

All meals are included, both onboard and/or on shore. The varied menus reflect the local seasons; from watching your onboard chef prepare for an evening’s dinner your experience will extend to a curated taste of the regions’ finest. This holds true for the beverages as well; beer – and home-grown wine– are included complimentary with your onboard meals and during your stay at Homfray Lodge. The meals will vary from cruise to cruise, ensuring that all guests savour foods at the height of their flavour. To inspire companionship, meals are generally served “family style.”
