THIS IS YOUR ALL VEGAN FLOATING HOTEL

Launched in 2018 and built to the most exacting standards, the MS Viva Moments is truly one of the finest ships of its type afloat anywhere in the world.

Every single aspect of the Viva Moments is designed to the highest possible specification and our own exacting standards to bring you the very best and most enjoyable all-vegan river cruising experience, in the most luxurious comfort. 

MS Viva Moments. Imagine yourself not just on a ship, but a sanctuary. A haven where every ripple on the river whispers of serenity, and every course danced upon your plate sings of compassion. This isn't just a cruise; it's a soulful symphony for the senses, a vibrant tapestry woven with plant-powered delights.

Sunlight streams through expansive windows, painting the decks with a golden glow that reflects the goodness in your heart. Our chefs, culinary alchemists of the highest order, transform nature's finest into dishes that burst with flavor and leave your conscience sparkling clean.

Picture intimate evenings on the Panorama Lounge, where the only sounds are the gentle lapping of water and the clinking of glasses filled with exquisite vegan vintages. Breathe in the crisp river air as you sip your morning tea on the sundeck, the vibrant tapestry of Europe unfolding before you. This is a journey for the soul, a chance to reconnect with yourself, the world around you, and the delicious possibilities of a plant-based life.

The MS Viva Moments isn't just a ship; it's a movement. It's a chance to be part of something bigger, a celebration of kindness and a love letter to our beautiful planet.

Which Airport do I fly to?

You would fly into Munich Airport (MUC).
For the best flight options we recommend to book flights via www.kayak.com 

If you live in or close to Germany we recommend using the train. There are very good train connections to Passau: https://www.bahn.com/ 

From which airport do I fly home?

You would fly out of Düseldorf International Airport (DUS). 

For the best flight options we recommend to book flights via www.kayak.com

Does Vegan Travel offer a transfer from Munich Airport and City center to the ship in Passau on embarkation day? 

Yes, Vegan Travel will offer a bus transfer from Munich City Center to Munich Airport to our ship in Passau. The drive will take around 1,5 to 2 hours. Our bus will leave Munich in the early afternooon. 
We recommend booking flights arriving at Munich Airport (MUC) a day earlier or before noon. 

More details will be available with the shore excursions 6 - 8 weeks prior to the cruise departure. We will send all information to all booked guests via email. Then you can also book the transfer. 

Where exactly will the ship be on embarkation day? 

The exact coordinates will be announced to us only a few weeks before the cruise starts. You will get the information with your travel documents. What we can say by now is that you can assume the ship to be centrally located in Passau.

Does the ship have Wifi?

Yes, there will be WiFi onboard the ship, which is also already included in your cruise fare! Being close to shore, the connection is quite good at river cruises but internet on board can never be as reliable as on land. There will always be some level of unreliability, especially the further out to sea you sail.

Our connection relies on a cellular or satellite terminal—the best possible solution for river cruising. Due to the nature of data bandwidth and latency, as well as potential interruptions in satellite signals based on terrain and weather, you may experience slower online connections than you are accustomed to at home. That’s why we recommend to download your content such as movies, series or software updates before the cruise, so there is enough data for everyone to use the WiFi.

What is not included?

  • International Flights
  • Airport transfers
  • Any additional food or beverages
  • Purchases of drinks, souvenirs, gifts and other personal items on board or ashore
  • Personal services such as spa, laundry and telecommunication charges
  • Baggage, travel cancellation and personal insurance

What is the likely age range of the guests on board this cruise?
