MS Jane Austen

How can one adequately sum up the wonderfully elegant five-star MS Jane Austen? Launched in 2015 and built to the most exacting standards, how can we describe this extraordinary vessel that's truly one of the finest ships of its type afloat anywhere in the world?

Quite simply, every single aspect and element is designed to the highest possible specification and our own exacting standards to bring you the very best and most enjoyable river cruising experience, in the most luxurious comfort.

We have worked tirelessly with our Swiss partner Scylla AG, one of the world's most experienced luxury rivership builders with a pedigree stretching back over nearly 40 years, to design the perfect vessel, with virtually no expense spared.

You'll feel the unmistakable understated opulence of this extraordinary vessel as you board through the spacious, marble-floored lobby. Stylish furnishings using environmentally friendly materials are beautifully combined with the most advanced safety systems… and the work of a wonderful designer's eye conjuring up the classic lines and sophistication of a luxurious ocean liner. As always, the finesse is in the detail - beautifully crafted tropical hardwoods, wrought iron, highly polished copper and brass, all beautifully illuminated then added to soft leather furnishings and imaginative colour schemes, promotes a subtle, chic ambience of exceptional taste.

Intuitive, unobtrusive service is graceful, efficient yet friendly as you might expect from a Swiss operated ship with 35 staff serving just 140 guests. This outstanding ratio of 4:1 allows a personal touch which makes such a difference to your cruise. Plus unlike other vessels typically carrying up to 200 passengers, you'll enjoy simply far more space - as well as a smaller, more intimate dining experience.

Dining

High quality dining is an integral part of any river cruise experience, as exemplified aboard MS Jane Austen. Guests will find five-star dishes awaiting in the two restaurants onboard, prepared by a team of dedicated and highly professional chefs, all served up by an attentive waitstaff. 

Enrichment

For centuries people have travelled Europe's mighty rivers to trade, explore and, sometimes, conquer. Steeped in history and culture, flowing through stunning scenery they form natural links connecting the continent's greatest and most beautiful towns and cities, from the medieval to the modern.

Entertainment

The Sun Deck is the hub for entertainment onboard. The forward viewing area is perfect for watching the historic riverside villages, steep vine-clad valley sides and other scenic wonders glide serenely by. It's well equipped with plenty of comfortable outdoor chairs and sun-loungers, deck games including shuffleboard and giant chess, a small splash pool where you can cool off, and a full bar service. Sometimes barbecues are held here too, weather dependent of course - a great way to meet new people over a glass of wine.

Gratuities

It is customary aboard all cruise ships worldwide to give a gratuity at the end of a cruise, providing, of course, you have received good service. The amount you give is entirely discretionary, and is then divided equally among the crew onboard. For guidance on the amount, Riviera Travel suggest between €5 and €10 per person per day.

Again at your discretion they also recommend tipping your local guides and drivers at the end of each tour, for which you can use the following guidelines:

  • Local guides €2 per person, per day
  • Drivers €1 per person, per day

Should you also wish to give a gratuity to your Riviera Cruise Director and Tour Manager, this is also at your discretion.
