On an Emerald Cruises 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. Their experienced chefs take great pride in preparing dishes of the highest quality and ensuring their menus showcase the fantastic cuisine Europe has to offer. Every day, you'll enjoy a hot and cold buffet for breakfast and lunch with an array of appetisers, main course choices and a collection of sweet treats at the dessert table. In the evenings, they invite you to be their special guest at a four-course dinner serving delicious international and regional speciality dishes.
Having an amazing holiday can be thirsty work, so remember that complimentary tea and coffee are available at all times throughout your cruise. To accompany lunch and dinner, they'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 holiday.
To complement the high quality dining onboard the ships, they also offer authentic dining experiences off the ship to give you a deeper insight into your destination's culture. For example, in Bratislava, you'll have a truly rewarding opportunity to taste traditional fare, and learn more about everyday life in the city during a home-hosted afternoon tea in the company of a local Slovakian family.
