Your Board Basis

This offer is based on a Full Board Stay (Breakfast, lunch and evening meal served in the main restaurant) with an all-inclusive drinks package throughout the cruise

Dining is a truly un-regimented affair – unlike other river vessels, the dining room opens its arms when you are ready, rather than at a specified time. A lavish buffet with a la minute cookery stations entices you with fresh ingredients and plenty of choice. In addition, a speciality waiter service restaurant offers an alternative option, with a new menu every night and the opportunity to dine here up to three times during the week. Weather permitting, you can choose to dine al fresco around pool as you watch the beautiful scenery pass by.

Please note: some dining outlets/menu items and premium, branded and international drinks may not be included and may incur a surcharge payable locally.  Meals, snacks and drinks may be available at selected times only
