The cuisine on board Nymphea is French. The dishes are prepared using
fresh ingredients and the evening meal is typically a four-course menu.
- Breakfast: Your day on Nymphea starts with a continental breakfast with pastries, freshly-squeezed orange juice, and hot beverages.
- Lunch: Lunch is usually buffet style with a selection of colorful salads, patés, and cold meats accompanied by hot soup or entrée, delicious desserts and a selection of regional cheeses accompanied by quality wines selected by the chef.
- Dinner: A taste of regional cuisine by candlelight, complemented by fine wines, followed by a selection of regional cheeses, coffee, and liqueurs. We dine out one night in the week at one of the local restaurants specializing in regional cooking. This is included in the cruise price.
