The Unique Riviera Travel Style
Riviera Travel prides itself on its unique style in tour operating - a real passion for travel and a truly relaxing ambiance on each of its river cruises! Stunning scenery and enchanting riverside ports, elegant towns and grand cities – there’s so much to enjoy on a Riviera four and five star river cruise. The superb ships are some of the very finest in the world and are waiting to take you on your enchanting journey.
One of the most recent ships to be built is the magnificent and wonderfully elegant five-star MS Jane Austen. Built in 2014, this extraordinary vessel is truly one of the finest ships of its type afloat anywhere in the world today!
Quite simply, every single aspect and element is designed to the highest possible specification with no expense spared to provide the most luxurious comfort, including a choice of cabins with full hotel-style beds to find the perfect sleeping position, plus the finest crisp cotton bed linen and down-filled pillows.
You’ll feel the unmistakable understated opulence of this outstanding Riviera vessel as you board through the spacious, marble-floored lobby. Beautifully crafted hardwoods and wrought iron, highly polished copper and brass and soft leather furnishings, all combine to create a truly extraordinary chic ambiance of exceptional taste. The heart of the ship is the magnificent panoramic observation lounge with wonderful views through floor to ceiling windows of the ever-changing landscape as you move along the river. You’ll adore the luxury feel, the genteel ambiance, the rich carpeting, the marble-tiled bar and the choice of sumptuous leather armchairs and soft modern settees. Have a gentle dance on the purpose-designed dance floor, or just relax in the peaceful Lido Bar at the rear of the ship, ideal to while away an hour on a comfortable terrace absorbing the sights and sounds of Europe’s great rivers. Fine dining will be a highlight of your river cruise experience, with cuisine of the absolute highest order prepared by dedicated, professional chefs. In the main restaurant you will receive attentive service with just four or six people at most tables, whilst surrounded by the luxury decor evident throughout the ship.
If that's not enough, another very special feature of the MS Jane Austen is its purpose-designed and extensive spa. The beautifully equipped spa can even be reserved for your private use to take a sauna or use the steam room. There is also an on-board hairdresser in case you fancy a cut and blow dry!
All in all, Riviera Travel's river cruises are quite simply extraordinary - a truly wonderfully relaxing and comfortable way touring and cruising the beautiful waterways of Europe and beyond.
