Vega 1 Dining & Restaurants

There are two main dining venues on Vega 1. The Swan Restaurant offers international and regional cuisine for breakfast, lunch and dinner on an open seating basis for 150 guests. During lunch and dinner, selected beverages - including wines, liquours, beers and soft drinks - are complimentary, with premium options available from the restaurant’s Aficiando Menu. You can also enjoy a private dining experience in The Swan Restaurant, courtesy of the Chef’s Table. This exclusive space must be booked in advance, though it is worth it for the bespoke menu and curated wine pairings.

The Club Lounge is Vega1’s more informal restaurant and offers a living room-style atmosphere and access to the alfresco Poolside Bar. The menu options in the Club Lounge feature a range of gastro market small plates, along with oven-baked pizzas, salads and tapas. Guests are also encouraged to use the Club Lounge throughout the day for light-bites, pastries and self-service coffee.

Should you choose to dine alone during your Swan Hellenic cruise, you will have the option to order 24-hour room service from the In-Cabin Dining Menu.
