Review of MPS Da Vinci
MPS Da Vinci cruise ship is owned by Feenstra Rijn Lijn (translated Feenstra Rhine Line) and chartered by the UK-based Shearings Holidays. This premium riverboat operates on Main, Rhine and Danube river cruise itineraries, and also on the Dutch Waterways (in Holland). Departures are offered from Arnhem, Basel and Cologne. MPS Da Vinci cruise fares are also inclusive of all transfers to and from the ship (by air, coach, or train /Eurostar).
All cabins are outside, offering centrally regulated air conditioning and heating. The accommodations feature private bathroom facilities, including a toilet and shower, as well as a mini safe.
The Da Vinci ship is designed like a sleek yacht, with sumptuous textile, leather furniture and dark wood. The beautifully designed lounge features an open fireplace. The spacious lounge looks like an inviting front room and boasts a comfortable sofa and baby grand piano. To make the most of the good weather, the Sun Deck serves as a welcoming living room. Passengers will find tranquillity and peace in the impressive library, the best place to lose oneself in a good book. The ship also boasts an onboard gym with Turkish bath and relaxing sauna. Wireless internet access is also available, so guests can hire a laptop and let everyone know just how exciting the MPS Da Vinci experience is.
The onboard luxury extends to the boat's stylish restaurant with breathtaking views, located on the Main Deck. Breakfast is buffet-style, with a wide choice of Continental and English items to choose from. At lunch, there is a sumptuous buffet or 3-course lunch served to guest's table. The 4-course evening meal includes starter, soup, choice of meat or fish main course (vegetarian option is available on request) and a dessert, all expertly crafted. On one evening passengers enjoy a very special 5-course Captain’s dinner which is one of the many highlights of Da Vinci's cruising vacation experience.
Feenstra cruise prices include full service, even a cup of tea or coffee offered at regular intervals. Drinks at the bar and shore excursions are not included. Feenstra Rhine Line doesn't operate any hidden surcharges for harbour fees.
