Dining

Great food has become synonymous with a Fred. Olsen cruise, and like our ocean-going ships – the quality and variety of the cuisine on board Brabant is sure to be a highlight of your holiday.

In the morning you can wake up with 'Early Riser' coffee, tea and pastries, all before tucking into a hearty breakfast buffet. At lunch, you have the option to indulge with three delicious courses, supplemented by a variety of buffet options, in the Panorama Restaurant. Mid-afternoon the Panorama Lounge will serve up a sweet tooth-satisfying Afternoon Tea to help refuel after a morning of exploration. The crowning moment is sure to be the sumptuous five-course à la carte dinner*, served every evening in the Panorama Restaurant. To round the day off, late night snacks are available for those who are – somehow – still peckish. What's more, all this is included in your cruise price.

The carefully crafted lunch and dinner menus feature a few classic favourites and vegetarian options too, as well as regional dishes inspired by the stunning destinations on your itinerary. Should you have any special dietary requests, simply let us know at the time of booking – we’ll do our utmost to ensure your needs are met wherever possible.

Entertaining

With so much time in port, river boats tend to have less activities on offer than ocean ships. While Brabant may be a little smaller than many other river boats, that doesn’t mean there isn’t plenty to keep you entertained throughout the time you spend on board.

Amadeus Club

During the day you might choose to relax at the Amadeus Club, where you can play cards, games and challenge yourself with brain-teasing puzzles; lose yourself in a good book; and browse the internet to catch up with the latest news, or friends and family at home. Or of course you could simply sit back and marvel at the ever-changing countryside scenery with a cup of tea or coffee in hand.
