New additions to the menu include Spanish-style albondigas (spicy meatballs), which are now offered alongside firm favourites such as homemade burgers.

Created by, chef de cuisine Brian Jacobsen and Thomas Hansen, other menu options include salmon panna cotta to start, carpaccio with truffle mayonnaise and marinated mushrooms, asparagus in serrano ham, Asian grilled pork breast on vermicelli noodles, sizzling prawns with chilli and garlic.

Dessert options include white chocolate mousse and crème brûlée.

After dinner, you can unwind in one of the onboard bars, soak up the live entertainment in the Columbus Lounge, or take in a movie in the cinema.
