The Pacific Restaurant is Adonia's main dining
room. Located at the stern of the ship, the room
offers views over the wake as well as both port
and starboard. However, more impressive than
the view is the understated elegance of the room.
In keeping with the room's classic style, the
Pacific follows the traditional pasenger ship
dining system, which is called "Club Dining".

evening. A specific table is reserved for each
guest at one of the two seatings.

can look out of floor-to-ceiling windows, the
Conservatory has an outdoor seating area
overlooking the stern of the ship.

for light lunches if you are
spending the day poolside.
