As with the tip on "hotels", in Antarctica your ship also is your restaurant! The "Marina Svetaeva" had two dining rooms, one large, one smaller. While the smaller one was a little more intimate, it also suffered from difficult access to tables at the back. The food and service in each was identical.
The chefs were from Australia and New Zealand, providing what could best be described as good quality hearty food of a varied and 'international' nature.
Breakfast was "help yourself" to cereals, juices, porridge, toast, plus something hot such as eggs, bacon, baked beans, croissants - the hot dish changed daily. Lunch and dinner were usually two courses, either main plus dessert or entree plus main. These meals were provided as friendly table service by Russian staff. On Christmas Day and New Years' Eve the cooks excelled themselves (Christmas lunch was five courses) - but those are special cases.
There was ample food and, because of the long stretches at sea, relatively little exercise. As a result, there was something of a risk to waistlines!
Address: Deck 4, Marina Svetaeva
