Thomson Emerald Dining

When you choose a ship such as the Thomson Emerald, you are walking into a world that is there to please and pamper you on an unforgettable cruise. This ship offers as much fun as anyone can tolerate, wonderful accommodations, and the ultimate in entertainment and food that is as excellent as the servers that serve it. It can accommodate 1198 passengers and carries a crew of 412 to ensure that your trip is the best it can be. With 10 decks on this beautiful ship for you to explore you will find that there is something new around every turn. All of this is awaiting your arrival so the Emerald can take you to ports you've only dreamed of.


Chanterelle Dining Room
The Emerald offers a few options in dining such as the Chanterelle Dining Room. You can start your day here with a delicious breakfast and you will find there is a great variety of food available to satisfy anyone's tastes. If you're leaning towards low-calorie you will also find this at this buffet. You can enjoy attentive waiter service at lunchtime, where a healthy buffet is offered for your enjoyment. In the evening you will be welcomed into the dining room by one of the staff, where you have a choice in two sittings. You can attend the early dinner or if this is inconvenient, then you can catch a late dinner after. It is better that you request this when you arrive on the ship because if you book ahead then you know exactly what time you'll be dining each evening. This makes it easier for the crew as well as yourself. You will find a few tables for two, but mostly the tables will hold from four to eight people.

Le Bistro
The Le Bistro is the Emerald's alternative dining. This is a self-serve buffet that you will find is in a very stylish but casual setting. This restaurant opens in the morning where you can start your day with a well-rounded breakfast. Lunches are offered in the same style with health food offered for those that have to watch their diet. You can also get dinner here as well as late-night snacks, which come in handy if you are a night owl and are king for something to eat late in the evening. Tea and coffee is available at this restaurant 24 hours a day as is room service, but with room service an extra charge applies.

Gala Night
Every week the captain has what is called Captain's Cocktail Party and Gala Dinner. This takes place at the Chanterelle Restaurant for those who wish to attend. It gives everyone a chance to wear something special, such as ladies appear in gowns and men appear in tuxedos. This is a special event that everyone seems to enjoy and is well worth the effort of attending as a captain welcomes all the guests aboard the ship. This is in night of fun and laughter along with exquisite food and service.
