Meals on River Cruises - Question

edited March 2022 in General

Does anyone have recent experience to share on how meals are being handled on the European river cruises? (We are booked on Belgium and Holland in Spring in mid-April.) In the past, most of the meals were open seating and much of the food was self-service and buffet. Have there been changes? Must one have an assigned seating time? Any information would be welcome!

    On our Nov 2021 Douro River cruise there was no buffet per se, rather a small dedicated area from which we were served the items we wanted. There was another small table from which you could help yourself to dessert. Ordering from a menu was available at all meals.

    Given the recent outbreak of cases, particularly in Western Europe, I believe it would be remiss to say post COVID. Nonetheless, we did not find the health and safety protocols detracting from our enjoyment of the trip.
