incorporating traditional dishes. The emphasis in the cuisine on board is the use of fresh, locally produced ingredients. We use organic products where possible, flours, oils,
vegetables, meats and cheeses. We will not say that we are wholly organic; however we consciously bring the best elements for taste and health into our dishes.
