All deluxe staterooms have a shower and wc, safe and TV with satellite channels. Ship's cabins also have individual air-conditioning controls, international telephone, and a hairdryer. There are steep steps between the decks, but a chair lift and plateau lift are available between Rex Rheni's Main, Sun and Promenade Decks. No lift is offered to the Passenger Deck.
The award-winning restaurant aboard ms Rex Rheni offers excellent food. There are buffet breakfasts, waiter-served 3-course lunches and 4-course dinners with a choice of main course. Complimentary beer, wine and soft drinks are served with lunch and dinner, while tea and coffee are available throughout the day in the bar.
The top deck of the ship is the ideal alfresco spot to view the beautiful landscape, while both lounges feature panoramic windows and guests can enjoy a drink without missing the scenery. The observation lounge is quiet enough to enjoy a good book or check emails. The sun deck is partially-shaded and whattever the weather passengers can relax on the sun loungers, exercise in the small fitness area, play table tennis or deck quoits.
Live music is performed aboard ms Rex Rheni nightly and light-hearted quizzes and games take place on some evenings.
