Review of MS Thurgau Silence
MS Thurgau Silence cruise ship ("MS Bellevue" when chartered by Phoenix Reisen) is an almost noise- and vibration-free riverboat due to its separate machine and passenger areas. Itineraries are along the rivers Danube and Rhine, with round-trip departures from Basel (Rhine) and Passau (Danube).
The ship's comfortable and stylish staterooms are equally sized at 13 m2 (140 ft2). All cabins are equipped with individually controlled air conditioning, flat TV, radio, phone, safe, en-suite bathroom (shower and WC). In the standard staterooms, a bed can be folded to the wall during the day, while the other bed becomes a cosy sofa. Superior cabins offer a double bed. Middle and Upper deck cabins are with French balconies.
Facilities on board include Panorama Restaurant, Panorama Lounge with its own bar, souvenir shop, wellness area (sauna, exercise bikes), outdoor sun deck area with awning, windscreen elements, deck chairs, chairs and tables. Thurgau Silence also offers free WLAN availability. The ship is non-smoking. Smoking is only allowed in designated outdoor areas.
