Review of MS Jane Austen

The 2015-built MS Jane Austen cruise ship offers cruises mostly on Moselle River (in Holland) and on Europe's largest rivers - Danube and Rhine. The riverboat is owned by the Swiss company Scylla Cruises and between 2015-2020 exclusively chartered by the UK cruisetour company Riviera Travel. Since 2020, the vessel is also operated under charter by VIVA Cruises (Scylla-owned subsidiary and travel brand).

The riverboat Jane Austen features an elegant Lobby (entrance hall on Diamond / Upper Deck) with Reception Desk (24-hour assistance, information, purser services), Travel Desk (tours and excursions information, onboard cruise booking) and Boutique Shop.

Aft on Diamond Deck is the Bistro - Lido Restaurant, an alternative to the Dining Room Restaurant. The Bistro is served by its own Bar and also doubles as Library. It has an outdoor terrace and open kitchen. Here are served early Breakfast, light Lunch and Dinner.

MS Jane Austen Wiki

The vessel's construction (hull and superstructure, ENI number 07002009) was done at the Vahali Shipyard in Zasavica (Sremska Mitrovica, Serbia). The 1923-founded Dutch shipbuilding company (Scheepswerf En Machinefabriek Vahali BV) owns and operates yards in Serbia (Belgrade, and Zasavica) and in Holland (Gendt). Vahali Shipyard Zasavica was officially opened in 2013. Following the construction in Serbia, the cruise ship was towed to Holland for final outfitting at Scheepswerf Vahali (Gendt).
