Restaurants and cuisine onboard

Food is at the very heart of every Vodohod cruise.
Enjoying delicious meals prepared by talented, professional chefs is an integral part of our cruise experience. It’s a great way to discover local flavours, culture and the life of every port of call as you journey through Russia.

The Vodohod culinary concept

In the same way that we plan every cruise, finding the optimal balance between relaxation, excursions and entertainment, we carefully design each dish, choosing the perfect combination of tastes, ingredients and presentation.

“Our renowned chefs have developed a culinary concept for all the ships in the fleet, and thanks to collaboration with famous drinks brands, your every meal will turn into an exquisite feast for your senses.
Our guests love the cuisine on Vodohod ships, always asking for recipes from our chefs so they can recreate their favourite dishes at home.”

Three meals a day are served across every ship in the fleet. Depending on the class of the ship, service formats vary between buffet or a la carte style, as well as free or fixed-seating arrangements.

We have coffee stations available across our four and five star ships for your convenience.

Onboard our ships, we cater for all dietary requirements. Please speak to a member of staff onboard to ensure we can accommodate your needs.

Brewhouse Bars & Coffee Shops

In the atmospheric bars or cosy coffee houses on our ships you will find a warm welcome, relaxing ambiance and amazing panoramic vistas.

Fine wines selected by the best sommeliers, signature cocktails, soft drinks, or aromatic coffee - we will help you make the choice that suits your mood. Any order is perfectly complimented by snacks or one of our tantalizing desserts.

Themed Bars

We have partnered with a number of world-renowned brands to enhance your ‘thirst quenching’ experience onboard. Available in our wine libraries, beer pubs and various other locations throughout the ships.

Coffee houses

Our coffee houses offer a cosy atmosphere, carefully selected coffee beans and a well-trained barista to serve you a perfect cup. You’ll be tempted by our cakes, authentic ice cream served in traditional metal bowls and handmade desserts from our executive chef. Give in, you’re on holiday after all.

Wine libraries

Here you will always find just the right drink to complement the moment, with everything from rich full-bodied or lighter wines to single malt whiskey or American bourbon. Perhaps your choice will be a chilled sparkling wine served in a thin flute or a digestif in a tulip.

Beverage packages

You never quite know what’s going to take your fancy from one day to the next, so we’ve created three drinks packages for you to choose that include a mix of non- alcoholic beverages to your favourite tipple. Book ahead of your cruise for discounted price or onboard as you arrive.

There are three options available:

The Light package

Non-alcoholic package including cocktails, juices, tea, coffee and even ice cream.

The Standard package

Includes, beer, wine and spirits, in addition to soft drinks

The Premium package

Includes premium branded alcohol and alcoholic cocktails.
