Inspired Cuisine — Every Day of Your Trip
Whether you’re dining on gourmet fare in your hotel’s restaurant; enjoying the flavors and cultural exchange of a home-hosted meal of local items; or indulging in a buffet overflowing with fresh produce, cheeses, and international favorites, mealtime is an experience to be savored. All meals give you a varied, authentic experience that reflects the true essence of your destination.

Dining Around the World. For your convenience, breakfast each morning is included at your accommodations to help you start the day ready to explore. Meals throughout the day are inspired by our travelers, whose tastes are reflected in the culinary marvels whipped up by our expert chefs. With so many of your meals included, you’ll have ample opportunity to sample the best of regional cuisine in our hotels, in restaurants, even at private family farms and homes where we learn – right from the source – how some local delicacies are made.

Special Dinners. Your trip around the world offers a Welcome Dinner and Farewell Dinner, as well as a variety of special meals and venues that showcase the local culture and cuisine of your destination. In Bali, enjoy barbecue on the beach and a home-hosted lunch. Sample dim sum in a Chinese restaurant and have dinner at the world-famous Raffles Hotel in Singapore. In Buenos Aires, have lunch at a local café and enjoy an Argentinean barbecue lunch. Learn about local cuisine and culture in Peru with a home-hosted lunch in Cusco. We’ve also included five Deluxe Meal Choices during your trip, giving you the opportunity to sample local cuisine at your choice of world-class restaurants — on us! And last but not least, we're putting the finishing touches on our Gala Dinner event in Cape Town.

Dining on the Eastern & Oriental Express is an experience to be savored. Black-tie and cocktail dresses are not required, but many consider it an opportunity to dress up. A jacket and tie are required for men, but business casual is acceptable. Jeans and sneakers are not allowed. You are able to sit with your chosen companions at a time that suits you. However, the restaurant cars have limited seating capacity, and large groups may need to be split over two seatings. Actual meal times and seatings are confirmed on the day of departure.

Home-hosted Visits Give You a Taste of Local Life
Wherever you travel, one of the best ways to connect with local people is to share a meal, snack, or coffee — with a side of conversation. Whether you’re having tea in a family home, sharing a farmhouse lunch, or attending a community-hosted meal, there's nothing more personal (or fun!) than bonding over food, and getting to know a little about each others' lives. In fact, most of our travelers report that their home-hosted experience was a highlight of their adventure. 

Healthy Choices at Every Meal
Along with international fare, you’ll also find many American favorites and choices for the health-conscious. We are happy to accommodate any special dietary requests you may have, such as low-salt, low-fat, gluten-free, vegetarian, diabetic, and lactose-intolerant, provided your requests are received at the time of booking.
