Casual dining and dress is the signature of the Original Ocean Village cruise ship owned by P & O Cruise Lines. It has been named one of the best ships to choose for the younger set who are taking their first cruise. Dine wherever and with whomever you please with settings for two to ten. Intimate dining venues as well as those for groups are widely available in the four venues on this ship.

You can have food at any time you wish when you take a cruise on the Original Ocean Village. The Plantation Restaurant features buffet dining in the evenings for those who want Asian and Oriental cuisine. Here you will find a wide range of food selections that changes daily and that include international and European dishes. All three meals are available here with mouth watering menus. You can choose the buffet or have your meal cooked to your preference.



The largest restaurant on the ship is the Waterfront and it is open 24 hours a day. There are luxury English breakfasts, specialty dishes from all over the world and meats cooked to perfection. Choose from the buffet or order from the menu, which changes on a daily basis offering something special for each day and night of your cruise.

Dine by the pool by day or night at La Luna with scrumptious menu choices. This is one of the alternative restaurants on the Original Ocean Village and there is a cover charge. Reservations are also required for the evening meal, but this dining venue serves all three meals of the day.

If you prefer a more relaxed setting for your meals, then Charlie’s will be just right for you. It has a traditional bar menu along with a wide selection of hot and cold beverages. Cookies, pastries and cakes will certainly be tempting as are all the desserts in the dining venues of the ship.

Reserve a table at James Martin’s Bistro and feast on food like you have never tasted before in your life. There is a cover charge for dining at this venue but it is well worth the meal you receive.
