There are all kinds of different dining options available on board the P&O Cruises fleet. Formal dining rooms. Restaurants created by celebrity chefs and restaurateurs. Grill restaurants.

AVAILABLE ON ARCADIA:
CLUB DINING
With Club Dining you'll enjoy the special ambience and sociable atmosphere of the main dining room, as well as silver-service and a five-course menu (six-course on Gala Nights). This style of dining is a wonderful way to share your holiday experiences and meet new friends. By choosing Club Dining you’re opting for the cruising tradition of set sitting times. The same table will be reserved for you and your table companions every night for first or second sitting, at 6.30pm or 8.30pm. You simply need to request your sitting preference when you book and we’ll inform you of your table number, sitting and restaurant with a card in your stateroom when we welcome you on board. Club Dining is available at the Meridian Restaurant.
SELECT DINING
Select Dining is wonderfully flexible, allowing you a change of scene and the opportunity to dine with different people. This is a great way to add variety to your holiday, if you wish to dine earlier or later than usual, celebrate a special occasion or enjoy an intimate meal for two. Please note that a Select Dining cover charge applies. Select Dining is available at the Arcadian Rhodes (Gary Rhodes’ restaurant) and The Orchid.
BALCONY DINING
This is the ultimate in intimate dining at sea. You can dine al fresco as the sun sets on the horizon, or beneath a starry sky, on your own private balcony. Select dishes from an exclusive menu designed by Marco Pierre White and enjoy personal waiter service. This is truly indulgent dining at its very best. This service will be available on Ventura and, from June 2008, balcony dining will be available on all other ships, with the exception of Artemis.

P O Cruises
It is said that PO Cruises "invented" cruising. In the 1880s the Orient Line and the North of Scotland company, both later to be taken over by PO Cruises, pioneered modern-style cruises, and in 1904 PO Cruises offered its first cruise holiday programme, a first class only cruise with shore excursions arranged by Thomas Cook. The tour used the 23-year-old liner Rome, renaming her ‘Vectis’ in her new role as a "cruising yacht." Forced to concentrate on the leisure side of sea travel, PO Cruises abolished passenger classes, acquired Los Angeles-based Princess Cruises in 1974, and Sitmar Cruises in 1988. Sitmar cruises was then merged with Princess Cruises. Since the beginning of the 1990s, Princess Cruises has embarked on a policy of growth through building new ships, bought and later built purpose-designed cruise ships and became one of the largest cruise operators in the world. PO Princess Cruises demerged from the Peninsular and Oriental Steam Navigation Company on 23 October 2000 when it started trading as an independent company on the London and New York Stock Exchanges.
