Dinner in the Constellations Restaurant is a four-course affair, where regional specialties are always featured. For a lighter buffet option you can head to the True North Lounge, or kick back and relax in McGeary’s Bar, an Irish pub serving traditional pub fare. No matter your choice, lunch and dinner is always accompanied by local wine and beer, as well as soft drinks, and enjoy barista coffee in the morning.
Each stateroom and suite features an en suite bathroom and personal climate control; great storage; queen or twin bedding with plush linen; plus a TV, safe and mini-fridge. Owner's Suites and French Balcony suites also feature blockout blinds and electronic windows that slide down to form a French balcony.

We take care of everything. Our Cruise and Tour Directors are known as the very best in Europe. Always available to provide personalised information and suggestions, they ensure you enjoy a holiday experience you simply could not have on your own. A high staff-to-guest ratio onboard each ship guarantees you'll be well looked after while on Europe's rivers.


With a range of acts to suit different tastes, live entertainment on your ship guarantees there is never a dull moment. Our resident onboard entertainers will elevate your evenings so you can relax with a drink and enjoy some live music. You can also expect performances by local acts as well as a range of activities. What’s more, new Infotainment systems allow you to watch it all from the comfort of your suite.

Multiple social areas provide a suitable retreat between touring. Soak up some sun on the Sun Deck, enjoy the putting green, a dip in the whirlpool, or grab a drink at the Sky Deck Bar. The True North Lounge provides another perfect retreat. Admire the scenery thanks to floor-to-ceiling glass windows, or enjoy the fresh air while relaxing in the Alfresco Lounge.

Your access to top deck scenery never ends. With a two-and-a-half deck design, there’s no need to end the party; you can access the top deck throughout your entire cruise. Plus, an internal all-weather staircase connects the Lounge to the Sun Deck above, so you can easily access the different levels. And with an elevator between internal decks, your ease of movement throughout our contemporary ships is greater than ever.
An onboard fitness room, whirlpool, putting green and walking track are available for those wanting to keep up their fitness. Bicycles are also available on board and are free to use for onshore excursions. You might like to cycle around one of the many picturesque European villages or head to a local vineyard for a leisurely picnic.

Travelmarvel's program runs smoothly from go to whoa, with great guides, perfectly paced excursions.
