Gourmets enjoy travelling on all the ships of the nicko tours fleet and on all the routes - they fully appreciate the excellent catering. Also in countries such as Russia, Ukraine, Egypt or China a balance between local and international menus is guaranteed.
In the spacious on-board restaurant all meals are served at a single sitting.
Breakfast is a buffet, Lunch is usually served at the table and Dinner is always table service by the ever-friendly staff. This method spares guests the necessity of queuing at a buffet and allows them to enjoy their meals at leisure.

Although there is no formal dress code, it asked that you dress smartly for Dinner.


Tips are not included in the tour price. They are a personal way of showing appreciation for good service. The amount is at the passenger's discretion, but our recommendation for ships on the rivers Volga, Dnieper, Danube and on rivers in Germany is € 5-7 per passenger per night on board. As we recognise that European passengers often have difficulties with local scales of gratuity in China and Egypt, we offer a service whereby the recommended gratuities are collected at the start of the cruise by the Tour Leader, who then distributes appropriate amounts to the ship's crew, local guides and coach drivers. Please refer to the cruise information for recommended scales of gratuities. In the case of cruises in Egypt with MS NILE EXCELLENCE the gratuities are included in the tour price.

Please note, while cruise details and inclusions are accurate at time of loading they are subject to change due to changes in cruise line practices and policies. Please check details and inclusions at time of booking.
