Panorama Lounge

Whether you’re looking to make a gala night ashore last just a little longer after your return to the riverboat, swap stories of the day’s adventures, or enjoy a nightcap with new friends you just met at dinner, the lounge is a perfect place to kick back and relax.

Lido Bar

The gracious aft lounge in the stern of your riverboat sports an innovative 180° curved glass wall that opens to the fresh air (weather permitting).


Dining Room

Dine on fine, freshly prepared cuisine with regional wines and beer included at lunch and dinner onboard, with attentive, friendly service – plus regional treats and tastings – as you enjoy great views of the passing scenery in this panoramic main dining room.

Arthur's Bistro

The gracious aft lounge in the stern of your riverboat sports an innovative 180° curved glass wall that opens to the fresh air (weather permitting) – and doubles as a second dining venue featuring classic favourites and lighter fare.


You will find that the main enrichment onboard will be lectures. However, when you step off the ship, local experts eagerly await to show you around the call-in area.

From spending a morning exploring ruins of Roman amphitheatres, to enjoying a glass of pastis and a game of pétanque with the locals, the local experts will show you the best and most interesting sights arounds.
