THIS IS YOUR ALL VEGAN FLOATING HOTEL

Welcome aboard the world’s first (and most luxurious) river cruise ferry!
Welcome aboard the state-of-the-art, five-star MS William Shakespeare – launched in 2014.

She is, without doubt, one of the world’s finest river cruise ships. The cruise ship owners have worked tirelessly with one of Europe’s most experienced and respected luxury shipbuilders, Veka Group, to create the perfect ship, featuring many unique, groundbreaking innovations. The finest of materials have been used in construction with virtually no expense spared; its sustainably sourced hardwoods, highly polished brass and wrought iron fittings, thick pile high-quality carpets, luxuriously comfortable deep armchairs and settees will absolutely delight you. In addition the ship’s spacious layout, subtle and tasteful lighting, elegant décor, luxurious cabins and excellent facilities are undoubtedly the very best on cruise ships today.

 

Superb attention to detail continues outside the vessel, where the extensive use of glass and polished stainless steel complements her sleek modern profile perfectly. As the ship glides, serenely, through the water to Amsterdam or Düsseldorf, she truly is a wonderful sight to behold! As you would expect, the ship also incorporates the very latest in modern construction techniques and safety systems, ensuring your cruise is as comfortable and secure as possible. Finally the ship carries just 140 passengers and with 35 crew, a 4:1 ratio ensures excellent service levels. With many similar size vessels carrying 180 passengers or more, you will find the extra space, especially in the restaurant, very noticeable indeed.

Riverview Stateroom

The cabins are very tastefully appointed, featuring a wealth of mahogany, marble and Italian soft furnishings, which blend together to create an ambience of true quality and elegance. In keeping with this theme, spacious marble bathrooms have a washbasin with plenty of space for fine vegan cosmetics, a WC and a glazed shower with fittings by ‘Grohe’. Cabins on on the Romeo (lower) deck have have smaller, fixed windows. At 14 square metres (151 square feet) cabins are spacious (amongst the largest on European rivers) and well appointed with hotel standard twin beds with individual bedding which can be moved together or separated accordingly, safe, telephone, hair dryer, tea and coffee making facilities plus individually controlled air-conditioning. They have flat screen TV with satellite channels and also receive images from a bow-mounted camera, so you can see exactly where you are cruising from the comfort of your own bed! One chair is provided for your convenience plus an umbrella for those hopefully rare, showery days. Tasteful lighting, subtly changing in harmony with the time of day is again a unique feature, whilst high quality bathrobes and slippers add the final elegant touch.
