THIS IS YOUR ALL VEGAN FLOATING HOTEL

Welcome to another world, welcome aboard the MS Thurgau Ultra

Throw everything you've ever heard or read about exclusive river cruises overboard. With the Thurgau Ultra, the world's most modern twin cruiser, a new age in luxury river journeys has begun.

As soon as you step aboard you'll feel the extraordinary atmosphere. The lobby area with reception, glass elevator, gallery staircase and glass dome ceiling offer just a glimpse of the architectural wonders to be found on this one-of-a-kind river cruise ship. And the friendly smiles on the crew's faces reflect the hospitality that makes this ship a true oasis of vegan well-being.

The Thurgau Ultra truly is a floating grand hotel. The goal has been to take everything done in river cruises in the past and make it better. This is especially true of the service on board, which always caters to your personal wishes and desires. A staff of 60 makes sure that you always feel good – the hotel manager, vegan chef and service crew are there for you 24 hours every day.

The Restaurant Royal : A journey on the Thurgau Ultra is a homage to good taste. Experience it for yourself in the Queen’s restaurant, where every day the chefs prepare extraordinary plant-based dishes from all over the world. A typical day of culinary treats starts between 6:00 and 10:00 a.m. with service directly at your table of anything your vegan heart desires.

Watch the chef prepare your à la carte omelet in the show kitchen. Beginning at 12 o’clock, lunch is served. Whether you let the chef create a menu for you or put together your own combination à la carte, you will always be treated to the atmosphere and service of a world-class restaurant.

The culinary highlight and a genuine thrill is the dinner, which is also offered à la carte. You have a selection of delectable dishes to choose from.

Welcome to a festival of senses. The days on board the Thurgau Ultra will melt on your tongue – literally.

The Wellness Lounge: Get away from everyday life. Take some time – for yourself, for the things that are important to you but often get neglected in the everyday routine. The Thurgau Ultra is the perfect place for it. The lavish, well-lit wellness area at the front of the ship is a haven of rest and relaxation. Let the weight fall from your shoulders. Indulge yourself and re-energize.

The glass-encased Saunarium offers you a wonderful view of the passing shore as well as privacy, since you cannot be seen from outside. A shower system and the large whirlpool complete your relaxation pleasure.

Whenever you like, trained staff are available for massages, or you can indulge yourself with an acupuncture or Kneipp treatment. Or stay fit with state-of-the-art cardio training machines. Whatever you decide to do, you will always leave the wellness area with a smile.

The Theatron: Because you’re here to enjoy yourself, the Theatron is the heart of the Thurgau Ultra.

So take a seat in the Theatron, where you always have a perfect view of the stage from comfortable groups of seats, and let fantastic nightly entertainment delight you.

The dance floor and cocktail bar with soul-stirring piano music do their part to create the enchanted mood aboard your floating vegan boutique hotel while anchored in the ports of Europe’s most beautiful cities

The Club, Steamship Salon, & Viennese Cafe:

A discerning atmosphere and elegant luxury awaits you in the Club. Many come for the sophisticated surroundings and the great company. Connoisseurs are sure to enjoy our international selection of excellent cigars and choice whiskys.

Relax in comfort in the steamship salon. Here you can enjoy a quite chart over a cup of tea or coffee, read the newspaper or play a game of chess. It is the ideal place to meet new and old friends.

Have a seat in the Viennese cafe and indulge yourself. Here, delicious coffee is a culture all of its own. And if you would like to round the day off with a culinary highlight, mouthwatering plant-based late-night snacks are available as well.
