Review of MS River Discovery II
MS River Discovery II ship joined the fleet of the European river cruise company Vantage Deluxe Travel in 2013. The riverboat carries 176 passengers in a size that accommodates up to 200 on other lines. The ship is aimed at North American travelers who are mature and have high expectations. Such needs are met with a passenger-to-staff ratio 4-to-1, a choice of 4 types of cabins (78% with French balconies) and a high number of singles, as well as food geared to the US palate.
Notable features onboard River Discovery II include culture-rich itineraries. On some sailings, the river boat takes ten days to cruise the same stretch of water which other lines cover in eight, this way providing more time in port and opportunity for cruisers to explore on their own, in addition to joining a daily program of included shore trips.
