The flavours of Europe

A culinary celebration

Expect truly memorable on board dining experiences, from start to finish. Every Emerald Waterways river cruise begins with a festive Welcome Buffet Dinner where you'll meet the intimate group of cruise guests, and ends with a sumptuous Captain’s Farewell Dinner where you share mutually treasured moments in camaraderie with new-found friends.
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.
Our experienced chefs take great pride in preparing your dishes to the highest quality standards, and in 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 specialities.
