We are committed to delivering luxury and amenities that rival ocean cruises, but with the intimacy and 'up close and personal' experience that a small ship affords.
Boston (PRWEB) March 21, 2007
Today in Amsterdam, Vantage Deluxe World Travel launched the newest and finest addition to its river cruise fleet, the ms River Discovery. The 360-foot riverboat boasts staterooms with french balconies, more Junior Suites than any comparable ship, cutting-edge technology, and a luxurious Owner's Suite with a well stocked mini-bar and a Jacuzzi bath.
"It is magnificent and will undoubtedly be the premier vessel anywhere on the European rivers," said David Gevanthor, Executive Vice President of Vantage. "We are committed to delivering luxury and amenities that rival ocean cruises, but with the intimacy and 'up close and personal' experience that a small ship affords."
Cabins on the ms River Discovery have been designed with taste and comfort in mind. Twin beds in all the cabins can be combined into a double bed (queen in the Owner's Suite), and other cabin amenities include a flat-screen TV with in-room movies and CNN, and a private bathroom with a shower. Innovative French balconies in more than 80 percent of the cabins offer floor to ceiling window views.
Among the design innovations is the addition of a forward observation deck that offers a unique perspective of the European countryside. There are two lounges, including the new Discovery Lounge located aft on the Navigator Deck. Wireless Internet connection in cabins and in all public areas makes sharing photos and travel notes with friends convenient and easy.
The ms River Discovery is the fourth vessel in Vantage's riverboat fleet. Vantage maintains an industry-leading service with a 4:1 guest-to-staff ratio. As with all other Vantage river cruises, trips on the ms River Discovery are all-inclusive, with sightseeing, entertainment, most meals, and international airfare included. In addition, four dedicated program directors with local expertise accompany each trip.
The ms River Discovery has capacity for 166 passengers and 42 crew members. Its maiden voyage goes roundtrip from Amsterdam and visits the Dutch Waterways. Details are available at http://www.vantagetravel.com/dfm07.
