Discover new cuisines in culturally-rich settings aboard our Mekong River cruise and tour. In addition to a sumptuous array of international dishes, you can indulge in authentic and flavorful Vietnamese and Cambodian cuisine that delights all the senses.

Another highlight of this itinerary is a typical Cambodian dinner in Siem Reap that features an Aspara dance show, a traditional Khmer art form that conveys a story.
India offers one of the world’s most diverse cuisines, with a multitude of regional specialties influenced by centuries of foreign invaders. Rich and full of flavor, Indian food is deliciously complex, typically made with a liberal use of spices such as ginger, coriander, cardamom, cumin, turmeric, tamarind, and cinnamon. It can be subtle or spicy, savory or sweet, meat-based or vegetarian, and everything imaginable in between. During your onshore stays at some of India’s finest hotels, you’ll enjoy full breakfast buffets offering everything from fresh pastries to cooked-to-order eggs to Indian-style dishes. Onboard, our innovative menus feature both Indian-inspired cuisine and Western favorites, with lavish breakfast and lunch buffets and multi-course dinners.
The skilled chefs onboard the River Tosca use fresh, locally-sourced ingredients to prepare all meals, a mix of regionally-inspired and Western dishes.

Egyptian cuisine caters to all types of palates, simple and tasty with a liberal use of vegetables, herbs, lamb, and chicken. Another culinary highlight of this itinerary is a proper English tea at a historic hotel depicted in Agatha Christie’s Death on the Nile.
