River Empress Dining
The restaurant is lined with floor-to-ceiling windows so virtually all diners have a view. Although it can accommodate all passengers at once, that's only 140 max so the room has the warm, intimate atmosphere of a small restaurant. The tables seat four or six; there are no tables for two. The color scheme here echoes that of the Main Lounge with pale teal and light-colored wood; a marble walkway inset into the carpeting is beige with coral accents.

Breakfast and lunch are served at a buffet set up on the center bar, which has a marble surface. Dinner is served by the wait staff and might include smoked, marinated salmon with creme fraiche as an appetizer and grilled tuna on green tagliatelli with a fresh, thick tomato sauce for an entree. Lamb, veal and beef entrees are also popular. Desserts often are fruit ice creams or perhaps a Bavarian cream of bitter almonds. Of course, a selection of cheeses is always available. There is no room service. Coffee, hot water and teabags are always available in the Salon/Patio along with cookies or candies.
