Dining

Central to every Aqua Expeditions cruise is the element of five-star dining with a menu created and overseen by a renowned chef. On board the Aqua Mekong, exclusive dishes created by Michelin-starred chef David Thompson showcase the best local recipes and flavours, complementing the cultural journey across Cambodia and Vietnam. In Peru, we are proud of our longstanding partnership of one of Peru’s culinary leading lights, Pedro Miguel Schiaffino, who masterfully incorporates Amazonian ingredients in his mod-Peruvian cuisine aboard Aria Amazon and the upcoming Aqua Nera.

 

On the Aqua Blu, stay tuned for our unveiling of our Consulting Chef, a renowned culinarian who will be orchestrating a uniquely Indonesian-inspired five-star dining experience.

 

The Aqua Blu experience will additionally showcase the freshest, sustainably-sourced seafood that the pristine waters of East Indonesia has to offer. Guests can look forward to refined plated dishes as well as convivial communal barbecues and relaxed outdoor dining. Exquisite and scrumptious cuisine, set amidst dramatic coastal landscapes, will undoubtedly be the highlight of all Aqua Blu itineraries.
