From the moment you board the captain and crew will take care of your every need, so all you have to worry about is sitting back, relaxing and enjoying your river cruise.

Setting sail in 2020, let us tell you why there will be no better place to spend your holiday than aboard this spectacular river cruise ship.

The Panorama Restaurant


The bright and spacious Panorama Restaurant on the Main Deck provides the perfect setting to enjoy a delicious meal while watching the world drift by.

With panoramic windows along three sides of the room, you’re treated to exceptional views of the river and its banks, as you enjoy a superb range of freshly-prepared dishes.

Four course meals will be served to you each evening of your cruise with a selection of traditional local delicacies and international favourites being available for you to choose from.

The crew will ensure you relish in a dining experience like no other, but be warned, you may come back a few pounds heavier…

Ambassador’s Lounge Bar


Holidays are all about relaxation and we can assure you that the stylish yet cosy Ambassador’s Lounge Bar is the perfect place for you to do just that.

The inviting ambience provides the perfect surroundings to sink into a comfy chair and enjoy an afternoon reading a good book from the collection available in the on board library.

With its floor-to-ceiling panoramic windows, the lounge bar is also the place to go if you want to enjoy the view-letting your cares and worries sail away.

It wouldn’t be a holiday without a cheeky cocktail, so why not grab one – or two – from the bar,  pull up a seat in the lounge, and enjoy an evening taking in the moonlit views of the twinkling river bank – it really doesn’t get much better than this!

The Sun Deck


Head to the sun deck for 360-degrees of uninterrupted views; the best views on the ship.

Grab a drink, pull up a table and chair and relax with friends as you travel between ports and take in the beautiful surroundings, or simply get yourself comfortable on a sun lounger and soak up the sun whilst taking in the sights.

You’re treated to some breath-taking scenery throughout the duration of your river cruise and the sun deck offers the ultimate vantage point from which to see it all.

Fitness Suite


Holidays are a time to unwind and allow your mind to recharge its batteries.

Life on board MS Arena isn’t just about feeling good in your mind, but feeling good in your body too.

Use the fitness equipment to burn off some of those calories from all of that  irresistible restaurant food, then reward yourself with an invigorating sauna or some time in the relaxation area.

Comfortable Cabins


Last but certainly not least it’s our wonderful cabins – where you’ll rest your weary head after an exciting day of river cruising and sightseeing.

You’ll be pleased to know that all of the cabins on board the MS Arena feature outward-facing floor to ceiling panoramic windows with French balconies, allowing you to take in the wonderful views of the river and surroundings from the comfort of your own cabin.

The spacious cabins are all equipped with en suite bathrooms with a shower and toilet.

There’s also plenty of space and storage for your all of your belongings and holiday purchases – so you won’t have to worry about packing light. Plus, all cabins feature air conditioning, a TV, telephone, hairdryer and a safe.

With the option to also choose between Main or Upper Deck Superior cabins, both featuring hotel style beds or Main Deck cabins with traditional fold away beds – we can ensure you’ll have a comfortable stay aboard the MS Arena, no matter what cabin type you choose.

So, with all that said, we hope you are as excited about the MS Arena as we are?!
