Review of MS Serenade 2
MS Serenade 2 cruise ship was launched in 2007. The vessel is owned by the Trans River Line company and chartered by the UK-based Shearings Holidays. This luxurious riverboat is modern, with a sleek design featuring extensive use of glass and quality wood. Itineraries are exclusively on Danube River, offering departures from Budapest (Hungary), Passau (Germany) and Linz (Austria).
The vessel is also superbly maintained and boasts 3 passenger decks and a large, outdoor (partially covered) sun deck. Serenade 2 has a comfortable lobby where guests can find a reception and cruise director desk. The Captain’s Club is where they can drink a cup of their favorite liquor. Onboard hotel service and cuisine levels are of similar standard to land-based top-class restaurants. The spacious sun deck is probably the most preferred retreat. The area is well equipped with comfortable sun loungers, outdoor chairs and deck games including putting green, giant chess set and shuffleboard. On the sundeck is also provided a full bar service. Among the other ship features are a wellness area (sauna and fitness / small gym) where passengers can enjoy a game of table tennis or yoga classes.
As sizes, Serenade 2 cabins are among the European river cruising industry's largest - at 16 m2 (170 ft2). All staterooms feature as standard amenities individually controlled air-conditioning, plenty of storage space, hotel-standard beds (convertible to twins double beds), a large seating area. All passenger accommodations also have flat TV (satellite reception), mini bar, phone, safe, hairdryer, tea / coffee-making facility. The en-suite bathrooms are with separate bath, shower and toilet. All upper deck cabins (Mozart and Chopin decks) are with floor-to-ceiling sliding doors opening to a French Balcony. Lower cabins (on Beethoven deck) are with fixed porthole windows positioned just above the waterline.
