Review of MS William Wordsworth

MS William Wordsworth cruise ship (built 2019, initially named "Dylan Thomas") is operated under charter by the UK cruisetour company Riviera Travel on itineraries along Rhine, Danube, and Moselle rivers.

Aft on Diamond Deck is the Bistro - Lido Restaurant, an alternative to the Dining Room Restaurant. The Bistro is served by its own Bar and also doubles as Library. It has an outdoor terrace and open kitchen. Here are served early Breakfast, light Lunch and Dinner. In good weather, the floor-ceiling window doors are fully opened onto the terrace for al fresco dining. Bistro's dining is complimentary, but dinners require reservations due to the restaurant's small capacity  (10 tables with 2 or 4 seats). Ship's Dining Room Restaurant (on Ruby / Middle Deck) provides single-seating capacity buffet Breakfast and waiter-served Lunch and Dinner.

On Emerald / Lower Deck is the ship's Wellness Centre consisting of Beauty Salon (hairdresser and barber services, nail studio), Fitness (Gym Room) and Spa (treatment room for massages). All cabin decks are fully air-conditioned and accessed via lift (passenger elevator) and wrought-iron staircase.

Sun Deck provides Giant Chess Set, Mini Golf (Putting Green), Retractable Awnings (shaded seating area), aft Pool Deck (Splash Pool, Jacuzzi, sunbathing area with loungers and deckchairs), full bar service. The fore-located Navigation Bridge (called "Wheelhouse" on riverboats) is passenger accessible and telescopic (can be lowered for passing under low bridges).

MS William Wordsworth Wiki

The ship is named after William Wordsworth (1770-1850) - popular English poet, best-known for his magnum opus "The Prelude" *(1798-1850). The vessel is powered by two Cat-3508 marine diesel engines (Caterpillar), which are V8, 4-stroke engines with individual weight 4309 kg, lube oil volume 227 L, power output 574 kW (combined/ship total 1,15 MW). The propulsion is based on two fixed pitch propellers (stern) and one bow thruster (azimuthing/azipod).

Vessel's construction (hull and superstructure, ENI number 07002098) was done at the Vahali Shipyard in Zasavica (Sremska Mitrovica, Serbia). The 1923-founded Dutch shipbuilding company (Scheepswerf En Machinefabriek Vahali BV) owns and operates yards in Serbia (Belgrade, and Zasavica) and in Holland (Gendt). Vahali Shipyard Zasavica was officially opened in 2013. Following the construction in Serbia, the cruise ship was towed to Holland for final outfitting at Scheepswerf Vahali (Gendt).
