first_imgGo back to the enewsletterUniworld Boutique River Cruise Collection has confirmed the introduction of new, innovative dining options across all of its luxurious all-inclusive river cruise ships. The fresh culinary programming includes options such as progressive dinners and cooking lessons with expert chefs.“Our culinary team are devoted to creating the ultimate dining experience,” says Ellen Bettridge, CEO and President of Uniworld Boutique River Cruise Collection. “We take pride in bringing a taste of each destination on board our ships, while providing a variety of dining options for our guests. From cooking with the renowned chefs on board to tasting regional wine from local vineyards, we are bringing our guests completely authentic and immersive culinary moments.”Uniworld’s alternative dining options include:Progressive Dinners: Unique to river cruising, progressive dining is available on all of Uniworld’s Super Ships sailing throughout Europe. The experience enables guests to eat each course in a new location on the ship, bringing them to multiple dining venues on board their floating boutique hotel. From entrées in the galley to dessert on the top deck, guests will discover hidden-gem spots throughout their meals. Menu offerings vary for each sailing, as the dishes change per chef, destination, season and region. For example, regional menu items may include soup of the day served with puff pastries, homemade seafood cigar with sweet chilli dip, beef roulade, fresh locally sourced vegetables, refreshing sorbet and more.Max’s restaurant aboard SS BeatriceAlternative Dining: Several of Uniworld’s restaurants, including Max’s restaurant on the newly renovated S.S. Beatrice, offer intimate cooking classes where guests can create local European cuisines alongside the chef such as wiener schnitzel and goulash. La Cave du Vin on S.S. Joie de Vivre offers an exclusive hands-on dining experience, where guests select fresh ingredients and prepare a seven-course meal with the ship’s onboard chefs, such as foie gras from the region, lamb de Provence, regional desserts and cheeses. Additionally, River Countess’ restaurant L’Osteria opens with Italian antipasto, fresh market salads, various types of al fresco pizza freshly made from the ship’s professional pizzaiolo (pizza maker), breadsticks from the local markets, freshly cut prosciutto di Parma and local sweets.Al Fresco Dining: On five of Uniworld’s ships – including River Empress, River Princess, River Countess, River Duchess and River Queen – guests can dine on the top deck, al fresco. Whether it’s enjoying a four-course meal under the stars or viewing sites along the river, this dining experience is the perfect way to celebrate a special occasion, at no additional cost.The cinema aboard SS AntoinetteFarm-to-Ship Cuisine: Uniworld’s “Farm-to-Ship” approach brings local dishes and ingredients on board, created by their master chefs. With meat and vegetables sourced from just kilometres away, guests can fully immerse themselves in the culture of each destination they visit and eat produce that is native to that specific region. Menu items reflect the local cuisine and range from French onion soup in Paris to homemade apple strudel in Vienna.Room Service Available 24/7: In addition to experiencing farm-to-ship cuisine at one of Uniworld’s many restaurants, all of Uniworld’s European voyages include room service that is available to guests 24/7, at no additional cost. Guests can have the destination’s most beloved cuisines delivered to their suite or cabin, the bar, top deck or lobby, any time of the day.Craft Cocktails and Regional Wine: The cocktails, much like Uniworld’s ships, are one-of-a-kind and inspired by the destinations visited. For example, the “Sassy Bordeaux” cocktail evokes the region with Lillet Blanc, its signature aperitif, and fresh, local tarragon. The ships’ bars offer local craft beer, specialty cocktails, regional wine and tastes of family-owned vineyards. Uniworld’s European ships are fully stocked with approximately 115 premium liquors, over 90 of which are complimentary throughout the cruise.Claude’s aboard S.S.
