Crystal River Cruises Dining

Crystal River Cruises' dining is elegant, yet inviting—equal parts artistic and comforting. With ingredients sourced locally, your onboard dining experience become an extension of your destination discovery. Pair award-winning regional wines with Michelin-inspired farm-to-table meals to delight even the most discerning palate. Best of all, perhaps, is that you'll enjoy these masterfully crafted culinary marvels in a perfectly inviting open-seating venue with remarkable river views! Imagine enjoying fresh-brewed coffee and a warm scone while the morning river mist retreats to reveal your next river destination.

Crystal River Cruises Bistro
Enjoy fresh fruit, light snacks, delightful pastries and made-to-order eggs at this Vienna-style coffee bar and café. In the afternoon you'll find a fine selection of charcuterie and international cheeses. Lastly, at supper time, Bistro transforms into a tapas-style restaurant where you can share your grand adventures around small plates. Of course, since this is a coffee bar, you're also invited to enjoy cappuccinos, espressos, specialty teas, ice cream and more throughout the day.
