Travelguru John Carter says:

River cruising generally is a great way to discover some of Europe’s finest cities as well as some of the lesser known towns and villages. Its quite unlike an ocean going cruise but with the same advantages of unpacking only once and letting the scenery and attractions come to you. The Johann Strauss is an impressive vessel with a lovely, friendly atmosphere on board – definitely one to try if you are looking for a relaxing yet stimulating holiday.

MS Johann Strauss

Built in 2004, the four star MS Johann Strauss is a 90 cabin vessel built to the highest specifications.

Johann_Strauss_foyerOne of her many fine features are the number of French balcony cabins. There are over 60 such cabins with a sliding glass door and a glass wall. All cabins are large, being 170 square feet of space, comparing favourably with hotel rooms or the better cabins on large ships. They are well planned and smartly furnished in light woods and restful colours.

Facilities include a king sized bed, individually controlled heating and air conditioning, television, telephone, minibar, safe, hairdryer, radio and a well appointed bathroom with shower and toilet.

Johann_Strauss_barAnother well designed feature of the vessel is the positioning of the restaurant, lounge, bar and cafe on the top deck. These public areas also have floor to ceiling windows, affording excellent views as you dine or relax. On board you will also find a fitness centre with a sauna, whirlpool and gymnasium equipment. There is also a small shop for convenience items.

All cruises include full board in the single sitting restaurant. Breakfast is provided buffet style, with a choice of breads, pastries, cereals and yoghurts together with the Full English selection.

Opera_and_Waltz_deck_cabinFor early risers, tea, coffee, breads and pastries are available from 07.00 hours. Lunch is a four course menu with a mix of buffet and served dishes. Afternoon tea is also provided daily with a choice of cakes. Dinner is a four course affair with a varied selection of starters, main dishes, cheese board and desserts. Coffee and tea are provided after lunch and dinner. To finish the day, snacks are available in the bar in the late evening.

Each cruise is accompanied by a knowledgeable guest speaker, providing an insight into the culture and history of the places you are visiting. There will not be any elaborate shows on board. However, a pianist will play each evening whilst you relax in the lounge.
