MS Jane Austen

MS Jane Austen

How can one adequately sum up the brand new for 2014, wonderfully elegant five-star MS Jane Austen? How can we describe this extraordinary vessel that’s truly one of the finest ships of its type to float anywhere in the world?

Quite simply, every single aspect and element is designed to the highest possible specification and our own exacting standards to bring you the very best and most enjoyable river cruising experience, in the most luxurious comfort. We have worked tirelessly with our Swiss partner Scylla AG, one of the world’s most experienced luxury rivership builders with a pedigree stretching back over nearly 40 years, to design the perfect vessel, with virtually no expense spared.

You will feel the unmistakable understated opulence of this extraordinary vessel as you board through the spacious, marble floored lobby. Stylish furnishings using environmentally friendly materials are beautifully combined with the most advanced safety systems and the work of a wonderful designer’s eye conjuring up the classic lines and sophistication of a luxurious ocean liner. As always, the finesse is in the detail – beautifully crafted tropical hardwoods, wrought iron, highly polished copper and brass, all beautifully illuminated then added to soft leather furnishings and imaginative colour schemes, promotes a subtle, chic ambience of exceptional taste. Intuitive, unobtrusive service is graceful, efficient yet friendly as you might expect from a Swiss operated ship with 35 staff serving just 140 guests. This outstanding ratio of 4:1 allows a personal touch which makes such a difference to your cruise. Plus unlike other vessels typically carrying up to 200 passengers, you will enjoy simply far more space – as well as a smaller, more intimate dining experience.
