Dining

Five Star Cuisine for the American Palate
While on your European river cruise, perhaps you’ll savor a sumptuous dinner of crispy duck leg à l’Orange with caramelized Grand Marnier 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. And enjoy a selection of wine, beer, and soft drinks to complement your dinners every night.

Inspired Cuisine — Every Day of Your Trip
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 cruise ships, 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!

Fine 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 Choices at Every Meal

Along with the international fare you’ll also find many American favorites and choices for the health-conscious — such as a grilled red snapper Filet — noted with an asterisk on the daily menu. Lighter fare is served for lunch and dinner in the Cotton Club Lounge (see below), and you are welcome to help yourself to a fresh fruit smoothie, available in the lounge. We are happy to accommodate any special dietary requests you may have, such as vegetarian, lactose-free, gluten-free, and diabetic fare — provided that you make requests to Vantage prior to departure. Please make your needs known at the time of booking, then confirm with the Reception desk or concierge once on board.

br /> Casual Cuisine in Our Airy 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 Cotton Club Lounge 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 al fresco 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.

Raise a glass
Aboard the Deluxe ms River Voyager local wines — as well as beer and soft drinks — are included with all dinners, including the Captain’s Welcome and Farewell Dinners. And in the lounge, you’ll find a full cocktail selection during the afternoon and evening, in addition to fruit smoothies throughout the day.






Venues as memorable as the menus
And along with your included shipboard meals, you’ll have frequent opportunities to sample regional fare on land. For instance, you’ll join a family for a meal in their home … enjoy lunch with university students … and partake in several wine tastings ashore throughout your journey. You’ll also have the option of seeking out 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.
