Brabant’s expertly crafted river cruise itineraries not only feature some of Europe's most incredible river scenery and cities, they also include the chance to enjoy journeys along smaller sections of rivers, calling into stunning destinations that larger river cruise ships can't access. Sail along the picturesque Danube, see historic castles and vineyards as you journey through the Moselle, take a trip to Amsterdam when the tulips are in full flourish on the Rhine and head for the scenic beauty of Bavaria and more when cruising the Main Valley.
When the weather is good, head out onto the Sun Deck, grabbing a drink from the Lido Bar before settling down on one of the many sun loungers. Take a dip in the pool, play a game of chess or shuffleboard. Alternatively, sit back and relax in the Amadeus Club with a refreshing cup of tea or coffee. From here you can browse through the selection of books on offer or play a game of cards or two. Guests who are looking to catch up with friends over social media or emails can do so from one of the computers on board with complimentary Wi-Fi included in your cruise fare.
From delicious three course lunches, supplemented with buffet options, five-course dinners and afternoon tea, there’s something for all appetites on board Brabant - plus it’s all included in the price you pay. Come mid-afternoon, Afternoon Tea will be served in the Panorama Lounge refuelling guests after a morning of exploration and satisfying those with a sweet tooth. Five-course à la carte dinner is served every evening in the Panorama Restaurant and carefully crafted lunch menus feature classic favourites and vegetarian options, with regional dishes inspired by the day’s destination also making an appearance. Guests who may still be peckish during the night can make the most of the late-night snacks available on board.
Come nightfall, the Panorama Bar and Lounge is always a great place to relax with friends and family, where guests can grab their favourite tipple from the bar and enjoy the gentle live entertainment that rounds off each day. Where available, specially-chosen regional acts will complement performances from singers, pianists and other musicians.
