A culinary celebration

Taste your way through Europe

Our Fine Dining Experience

Each meal enjoyed on-board our Star-Ships provides an exceptional new experience. From a hearty buffet breakfast to a five-course à la carte menu, sitting down to another delicious meal will soon become one of the highlights of your cruise.
We believe that great service plays an important role in the dining experience, which is why all of our team members have been carefully selected for their experience and expertise. And with one of the very best guest to crew ratios on Europe’s rivers, you can expect customer care at its finest. No matter where or how you choose to dine on-board our ships, you’ll find our friendly, professional team are always ready to help you.

Of course, all meals are included in the price of your trip, as well as complimentary wine, beer and soft drinks with lunch and dinner. On selected days, we’ll even throw a few coals on the BBQ and tuck into a flavourful grilled feast on the Sun Deck. With Emerald Waterways, you’ll be spoiled for choice.
