TO DISCOVER

INSPIRED GOURMET CUISINE

Throughout your cruise, our chefs will tempt you with delightful dining – casual 4-course lunches, elaborate 5-course dinners, extensive breakfast buffets and sumptuous evening snacks.

 

Inspired by regional dishes, our cuisine is prepared fresh from scratch, often featuring products from local markets in each port.  

CULINARY DELIGHTS

DELIGHTFUL, DELICIOUS VARIETY

Our diverse and delectable menus at our Crystal Dining restaurant change each day, presenting the signature specialties of each destination for you to discover.

  • Savor traditional favorites such as sauerbraten, schnitzel or a spicy goulash.
  • Explore a rotating variety of local pasta dishes, or perhaps try our fish of the day.
  • Enjoy freshly baked breads, locally sourced cheeses and sausages, and more.

 

Plus, there are no pre-set table assignments — you may dine with whomever you want each evening, at tables of two to eight people.

DELICIOUS VARIETY

WINE AND BEER ALWAYS INCLUDED

Each lunch and dinner is paired with exquisite European wines, personally selected by our sommelier from the best regional varietals. Sample a crisp German Riesling one night, then a delightful Austrian Grüner Veltlinger the next – or, enjoy a classic French, Italian or Spanish vintage any evening.

 

There’s also a selection of regional beers available, plus non-alcoholic drinks.  Best of all – these premium wines and beers are included with your cruise fare, at no additional charge.
