Whether you’re dining on gourmet fare in your hotel’s restaurant, a meal ashore at a local restaurant, or an onboard buffet overflowing with fresh produce, cheeses, and international favorites, mealtime is an experience to be savored. That’s why we’ve planned several special dining experiences throughout your journey in Portugal. Aboard the ms Douro Serenity, dining varies between buffet offerings and set-menu meals, including a Portuguese-inspired Captain’s Dinner. Complimentary beer and soft drinks are available with all dinners on board, as well as a selection of regional wines selected specifically to enhance your tour of this rich culinary area.
Wines harvested locally, including Tons Duorum Branco, Tons Duorum Tinto, Porca Murça Branco, Porca Murça Tinto, Castelo Rodrigo Siria, and Caselo Rodrigo Touriga Nacional are offered on board seasonally. During your journey, you’ll also savor a Welcome Dinner at your hotel in either Lisbon or Madrid (depending on your departure). Smart casual wear is recommended for these special dinners. As if that weren’t enough, you’ll have opportunities to sample local cuisine at restaurants during shore excursions, too.
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.
