Review of MS Belvedere

MS Belvedere (formerly known as "Avalon Poetry") offers river cruises on the Danube River. Belvedere is the last of 6 almost identical river ships, a capital investment project of Premicon AG at Nobiskrug shipyard, Rendsburg. The limited partnership was about EUR 8 million, and the investment of investors around EUR 7 million.MS Belvedere

Belvedere cruise ship has many things to win guests over, such as culinary delights in its onboard restaurant and an expansive sun deck. Wireless internet connection provided on the whole liner means passengers can send holiday greetings to family and friends from anywhere along the river. In the inviting and cozy spa area they can use a sauna, jacuzzi and loungers for absolute relaxation. State-of-the-art cardio machines are found in the fitness room to improve stamina.

MS Belvedere offers generously-sized, airy and light cabins. On the Rhine and Danube decks, two panoramic windows overlook the French balcony and invite passengers to enjoy their moments of calm. On ship's Moselle deck, the extra-large portholes feature wonderful views of the river landscapes.

The ship's reading lounge and library are the best place to retreat and read in peace. MS Belvedere's onboard language is English. The Program Director, Tour Escort, tour guides and key staff all speak English.

The Belvedere ship is one of all three time-chartered by CMV riverboats operating in Europe. The other two in the "Cruise and Maritime river cruise fleet" are Bellefleur and Bellejour.
