Review of MS Serenade 1
MS Serenade 1 is a luxurious riverboat operating on Rhine and Danube cruise itineraries. Departures are offered from Dusseldorf, Frankfurt, Cologne, Amsterdam, Budapest, Vienna, Basel, also from Mainz and Passau. Itinerary lengths are 2-, 3-, 5-nights (mainly Dusseldorf and Amsterdam roundtrips), 7-, 9-, 10-, 11, and 14-night.
Serenade I is a comparatively large ship with limited passenger capacity. This means there is a lot of space per passenger, resulting in larger staterooms and spacious public areas. Onboard passengers can enjoy a restaurant, lounge & bar, Captain's Club, wellness area (massage room, sauna, fitness), small shop, large sun deck (outdoor top-deck area).
The ship has 68 cabins located on three different decks. Staterooms are sized 16 m2 (172 ft2), but due to the extremely efficient design, they seem larger. All accommodations are fully equipped with individual heating / air conditioning controls, radio, flat TV, mini bar, safe, phone, comfortable en-suite bathroom (bathtub and shower). All cabins on decks Mozart and Chopin are with French balconies, Cabins on Beethoven Deck feature large windows.
The onboard restaurant offers a large buffet for breakfast meals. Waiter service is provided for lunch and dinner. With a wide variety of cuisines to choose from, passengers will never walk away and feel empty. For those who get hungry late at night, delicious snacks are provided in the evening. Afternoon tea is also served.
