We've often said that just because you go on a cruise, you don't have to depart from you healthy eating style.   The Solarium Bistro makes it easy for you to eat healthy while still enjoying a relaxing day in the sun.    Just put on your cover up and stroll from the whirlpool to the bistro for breakfast or lunch.   

As night falls,  the Solarium Bistro converts into Samba Grill, a starlit Brazilian-style dining experience, featuring specialty caipirinhas along with rotisserie-roasted meats and seafood, straight off the grill and carved table-side.   There is an additional charge for the dinner.
