Bremen cruise has one main dining room, one alternative restaurant, and one outdoor food diner.
- Main Restaurant – the main dining room serves meals at a single seating. You must confirm all food arrangements before you board. This non-smoking restaurant reserves you the same seat number all throughout the trip albeit the restaurant follows open seating arrangement.

- The Grill – this outdoor eatery serves western grilled meats like hotdogs, pork chops, sausages, and grilled chicken. You can also request for a freshly baked pizza.
Entertainment and Nightlife
The Bremen cruise ship is compact with the basic entertainment venues for slow nights. You can listen to music at the bandstand or take a few drinks at the bar. For full-pledged nightlife entertainment, visit the Bremen Club for hired acts.
The size of the cabins is satisfactory even though Bremen ship itself is small. There are small balconies for upscale accommodations. All rooms are complete with television, mini bar, bathroom, sitting area, refrigerator, voltage outlets, and telephone. Cabin service is from 7 am to 10 pm only.
The ship has hairdressing salon, treatment spa, and small fitness center for pampering. There is one small pool and sauna. Bremen cruise has no casino, Jacuzzi or steam rooms. You can use one of the Internet PCs at an hourly rate. It has a shop catering to clothing needs, especially for outside weather changes. You can borrow a book (German or English) at the library or catch a movie/live presentation at the theater room.
To make your expeditions enjoyable, a shore excursion is recommended for every port stop the ship has made. For a fully guided tour, you must reserve service before boarding. You can contact the reception for last-minute reservations though.
You don’t have to shell out extra money as the total boarding amount already includes all services from food to tips (tips are highly discouraged). Additional services like spa treatment, laundry, ironing, and massages come with an extra fee.
Taking the Kids
Kids are welcome to join you on your luxury trip. There are no specialized programs and activities for kids onboard though, so Bremen reviews deem the ship as unsuitable for children.
