Dining

Pork tenderloin Wellington with potato gratin dish Inspired Cuisine — Every Day of Your Trip
During your European river cruise, perhaps you’ll savor a sumptuous dinner of Pork Tenderloin Wellington with Potato Gratin, vegetable medley and Port wine sauce. Or a juicy burger grilled just the way you like it. Visit the buffet brimming with field-fresh salads, local cheeses, and homemade breads hot from the oven. Enjoy a selection of fine wines to complement your dinners every night. 

We can call our meals "inspired" because they’re inspired by our travelers, whose tastes are reflected in the culinary marvels whipped up by our expert chefs, who have been trained at Europe’s best culinary schools. With so many of your meals included, you’ll have ample opportunity to sample the best of regional cuisine — on board our river cruises, in our hotels, in restaurants, even at tastings on board and at private venues, where we learn (right from the source) how some of the local delicacies are prepared and, most importantly, how scrumptious they taste!

Bourbon Street Bistro dining room tablesFine fare in the Bourbon Street Bistro
The Bourbon Street Bistro is our main shipboard dining venue. Here, you can enjoy breakfast, lunch, and dinner, featuring a menu of gourmet cuisine based on classic continental and American favorites, as well as regional specialties and healthy choices at every meal. Dinners are single-seating dining with no seating plan, so you can dine with whomever you choose. Some breakfasts and lunches are served buffet-style. In this refined yet relaxed setting, you’ll also find crisp white table linens, fine crystal, Villeroy & Boch dinnerware and silverware, fresh flowers, and attentive service.

Healthy choice plateHealthy Choices at Every Meal

With so many of your meals included as part of your Europe river cruise, you'll have ample opportunity to sample the best of regional cuisine – on board our river boats, in our hotels, in local restaurants, even in family homes. But along with the international fare, you'll also find many American favorites and choices for the health-conscious.




Cotton Club Lounge dinersDine Alfresco in Our Cotton Club Lounge
For a change of pace, you'll also be able to dine in the new Cotton Club Lounge seating area, where you can enjoy healthy spa cuisine and other lighter choices, buffet-style. The Captain's Club boasts floor-to-ceiling windows for incomparable views. When the weather is right we retract the glass roof and slide open the back wall for a full alfresco experience. While seating is open during the day, demand is high at dinnertime and reservations are required. Send a request to your concierge prior to your cruise to confirm the evening you prefer, or wait and reserve once you are on board. (Available on the ms River Splendor and ms River Voyager.)

Owner's suite room serviceIn Room Dining
If you have chosen accommodations in our Owner’s Suite or Deluxe Suite categories — or if you are a member of our President’s Club and have chosen any cabin category — you have the option of taking your meals in your room. In-room breakfasts are continental, but you may order lunch and dinner right off the regular menu. Simply speak to your steward in advance so that we may accommodate your wishes.

Aboard your Deluxe European river ship, local wines — as well as beer and soft drinks — are included with every dinner. And in the lounge, you’ll find a full cocktail selection during the afternoon and evening, in addition to complimentary fruit smoothies throughout the day.




Restaurant in Bruges, Belgium
Venues as memorable as the menus
And along with your included shipboard meals, you’ll have frequent opportunities to sample regional fare on land. Depending on your itinerary, you might enjoy meal ashore — such as lunch at a restaurant in Bruges, Belgium … a typical Dutch appetizer with a family in their home … or tempting treats while exploring on your own. Our onboard Concierge will have plenty of recommendations for great restaurants, and can help make your reservations, too.
