Q. Trying out exciting and experimental cuisine is one of our favourite things to do when we’re on a holiday. Which cruise lines have the best food?

A. Cruise holidays offer a smorgasbord of culinary delights – you can eat in top quality restaurants (some run by celebrity chefs) at a fraction of the price (usually a cover charge) it would cost for a similar meal on land. Try Asian dishes with a twist in Oceania Cruises’ award-winning Red Ginger restaurant. The Wine Maker’s Dinner on board Princess Cruises‘ Royal Princess is exquisite and made for foodies while I defy anyone not to fall in love with the warm melting chocolate cake on board Carnival Cruise Line’s ships. I had it two nights in a row (calories don’t count at sea, right?).
