Inspired Cuisine — Every Day of Your Trip
Whether you’re dining on gourmet fare in your hotel’s restaurant, a delectable home-hosted meal, or a buffet overflowing with fresh produce, cheeses, and international favorites, mealtime is an experience to be savored. Breakfasts are all served buffet-style with local and international menu options, while lunches and dinners are set-menu gourmet meals. Special meals are also featured during this incredible journey, including a traditional Bosnian meal, lunch in a Dalmatian village, and a home-hosted dinner in Dubrovnik.
During your luxurious cruise aboard La Perla
, you'll savor delicious meals prepared by an accomplished and well-trained chef, who has a wide range of experience in the food and beverage industry. The chef pays great attention to every detail and uses only the best-quality fresh ingredients. Each morning, an early riser breakfast is available with coffee/tea and pastries, followed by a breakfast buffet with freshly baked breads. For lunch, you may enjoy a mouth-watering spread of options at a buffet or savor a three-course meal with your choice of three main courses — including one vegetarian and one healthy option. In the evening, you'll sit down to a delectable four-course meal with your choice of three main courses, which will also include one vegetarian and one healthy option. What's more, you'll enjoy complimentary beverages during your cruise, including house wine, beer, daily cocktails, soft drinks, and nonalcoholic drinks.
There are also special culinary experiences on your journey, including a visit to a prosciutto producer to learn how the delectable dry-cured ham is produced, a tasting of freshly harvested oysters and family wine from the Bay of Ston, and a special wine tasting in Korcula.
Menus consist of foods served in the Adriatic and Mediterranean regions, with an emphasis on local and traditional specialties. Although all meals are included aboard the ship, you do have opportunities to go out on your own and sample the cuisine in local restaurants during your journey. Your Adventure Leader can recommend restaurants and menu options that you may want to try. All meals give you a varied, authentic experience that reflects the true flavors of the region.
Healthy Choices at Every Meal
Along with the regional and international fare, you’ll also find some choices for the health-conscious. We are happy to accommodate special dietary requests, such as vegetarian, gluten-free, lactose-intolerant, and allergy-specific concerns, provided your requests are received at the time of booking.
