Another picture-album sight is Abraão Cove, considered the most beautiful bay on the island.

Freestyle Dining Options

Free Dining Experiences

Ginza (Deck 7): This free-of-charge restaurant specializing in Asian recipes has a teppanyaki room that only seats 12 at one time, so reservations early in the trip are critical, and a sushi bar with a mechanical “train” that delivers a rotating array of morsels.

The Garden Cafe (Deck 12): The ship’s buffet/cafeteria restaurant serving the usual breakfast and lunch fare, casual dinners, and light snacks the rest of the day and night. Omelet and waffle stations are available for breakfast, and at lunchtime, the port side becomes a vegetarian station, with fresh salads, steamed vegetables, and a variety of freshly prepared dishes.

Fee based Dining Experiences (Choose 2 as add-on for fraction of the cost at checkout)

La Cucina (Deck 6); a la carte: Italian eatery serving all the usual pasta and pizza favorites.

Moderno Churrascaria (Deck 13, midships); $24.95: Moderno Churrascaria, a Brazilian steakhouse, takes up pretty well all the space where the Star Bar once was.

Cagney’s Steakhouse (Deck 13); a la carte: Cagney’s Steakhouse eatery is located at the top of the ship and replicates a typical high-end steak-and-chop house, with white linens and a clubby feel.
