Emerald Waterways: Dining

Luxury River Cruise Ships
On an Emerald Waterways river cruise, you can expect great dining experiences from start to finish. Each of our cruises begins with a Welcome Dinner where you’ll meet other guests, and ends with a Farewell Dinner where you can share memories with new-found friends.

Our experienced chefs take great pride in preparing your dishes to the highest quality standards, and ensuring our menus showcase the fantastic regional cuisines of Europe. Every day, enjoy a breakfast and lunch buffet with an array of hot and cold appetizers and main course choices, as well as a dessert table with a collection of fine sweets. In the evenings, we invite you to be our special guest at a four-course dinner serving delicious international and regional specialties.

Fine Dining: Reflections Restaurant

Reflections is our ship’s main restaurant, offering an informal setting for you to enjoy our delightful cuisine. Every day, you can enjoy a buffet breakfast or for something a little more special, take advantage of our resident Egg Chef’s fabulous selection of freshly prepared morning meals. At lunch, you can choose from a full hot and cold buffet or delicious à la carte menu. In the evenings, you’ll enjoy a four-course dinner carefully prepared by our amazing chefs.

Go al-fresco: The Terrace

With a panoramic view, The Terrace at the ship’s bow is a beautiful setting for fair-weather outdoor dining. Watch the sunrise with your morning tea or coffee and a light breakfast. In between excursions? Grab a café-style lunch from your choice of pastas, soups, sandwiches and salads. On select days, find us firing up the barbecue on the Sun Deck for a fantastic grilled feast.

Keeping your glass topped off

Having an amazing vacation can be thirsty work, so remember that complimentary tea and coffee are available at all times throughout your cruise. To accompany lunch and dinner, we’ve carefully chosen a special selection of European red and white wines, local beers and soft drinks for you to enjoy with your meal - all of which are included in the price of your vacation.

Authentic onshore dining

Extend your high quality on board dining experience with authentic onshore regional dining excursions that offer you deeper—and more delicious!—insight into your destination’s culture and people. For example, in Bratislava, you’ll have a truly rewarding opportunity to taste traditional fare and learn more about everyday local life during a hosted afternoon tea, in the company of a local Slovakian family.
