Savor Top-Notch Fare Onboard
Yes, the river cruise ship offers buffets, made-to-order omelet stations and more delicious carbs than you could possibly consume in one week, but meals onboard are also a true epicurean delight. Nightly dinner includes the region’s famous wines and beers, and the ship’s complimentary Chef’s Table offers hand-crafted dining creations that rival Michelin Star establishments back on land.

While sailing on the Danube, you can explore the many uses for apricots on an Austrian farm, reap the benefits of a perfected wine-making process, try your hand at sculpting marzipan and learn how to make a pretty perfect strudel.
