Food, glorious food
Wherever you travel, dining is always an
important part of your holiday experience.
As is the case on Fred. Olsen’s ocean-going
ships, the cuisine on board Brabant is sure
to be one of the highlights of your cruise.
There are ‘early riser’ coffees, teas and
pastries, followed by a varied breakfast
buffet, to really set you up for the day. At
lunchtime you may opt to indulge in three
courses accompanied by buffet options in
the Panorama Restaurant; or savour
something lighter in the Panorama Lounge.
It is here where delightful Afternoon Tea is
served every day.
Ending the day in style is the delicious fivecourse
à la carte dinner served every
evening in the Panorama Restaurant*. On
top of all that, late night snacks are available
for those who are somehow still peckish. All
this is included in your cruise price.
The tempting lunch and dinner menus
feature varied dishes, including classic
favourites and vegetarian options, as well as
regional dishes inspired by the destinations
on your itinerary. As part of the distinctly
British experience on board, you’ll find all
the little touches you’d expect back home,
too. Should you have any special dietary
requirements, please let us know at the time
of booking. We’ll do our utmost to make
sure your needs are met wherever we can.
*All meals are open seating. Evening dinner is one sitting,
normally at 7.30pm.
Combining stylish cherry wood interiors
and contemporary colours with space to

breathtaking scenery for which Fred. Olsen
River Cruises are renowned.
There are two thoughtfully designed Suites

perhaps challenge your fellow guests to a
game of shuffleboard or giant chess.
