High quality dining is an integral part of any river cruise experience, as exemplified aboard MS Jane Austen. Guests will find five-star dishes awaiting in the two restaurants onboard, prepared by a team of dedicated and highly professional chefs, all served up by an attentive waitstaff.
The Sun Deck is the hub for entertainment onboard. The forward viewing area is perfect for watching the historic riverside villages, steep vine-clad valley sides and other scenic wonders glide serenely by. It's well equipped with plenty of comfortable outdoor chairs and sun-loungers, deck games including shuffleboard and giant chess, a small splash pool where you can cool off, and a full bar service. Sometimes barbecues are held here too, weather dependent of course - a great way to meet new people over a glass of wine.
For centuries people have travelled Europe's mighty rivers to trade, explore and, sometimes, conquer. Steeped in history and culture, flowing through stunning scenery they form natural links connecting the continent's greatest and most beautiful towns and cities, from the medieval to the modern.
It is customary aboard all cruise ships worldwide to give a gratuity at the end of a cruise, providing, of course, you have received good service. The amount you give is entirely discretionary, and is then divided equally among the crew onboard. For guidance on the amount, Riviera Travel suggest between €5 and €10 per person per day.
Again at your discretion they also recommend tipping your local guides and drivers at the end of each tour, for which you can use the following guidelines:
Should you also wish to give a gratuity to your Riviera Cruise Director and Tour Manager, this is also at your discretion.
Please note: MS Jane Austen does not provide facilities to accommodate Kids/Teens.
