Review of MS Charles Dickens

A sister ship to MS William Shakespeare (launched in 2014), ms Charles Dickens marks the expansion of the European fleet of Riviera Travel to 9 river boats. MS Charles Dickens offers itineraries through the heart of Europe on Rhine, Moselle and Danube rivers.

MS Charles Dickens features contemporary decor including brass and wrought iron fittings and sustainably sourced hardwoods. Design details include special sound absorbent paint on the ceiling of the restaurant reducing noise levels during mealtimes. The dining room operates an open dining system and has tinted panoramic windows so passengers won't miss any beautiful scenery by having to pull down blinds on sunny days. The bar is situated at the rear of ms Charles Dickens and is also used as an evening dining venue where the ship's chef offers signature dishes to 24 cruisers. This can be reserved at no extra charge at the time of boarding.

The majority of cabins aboard ms Charles Dickens are 15 m2 (161 ft2). On the upper deck there are 4 suites (23 m2 /245 ft2) with sliding glass doors that lead to a veranda with table and chairs. All other cabins on the middle and upper decks have floor-to-ceiling windows and French balconies.

Amenities on ms Charles Dickens include a hair salon, sauna and fitness room. There is a large sun deck and cruise passengers are welcome to the bridge at any time, except when the ship is navigating locks or berthing.
