The Riverside Mozart is an exceptional phenomenon. As one of the largest river cruise ships on the Danube, and certainly the most well-appointed, she knows – just like her famous namesake – how to captivate and constantly surprise her guests. A river cruise aboard the Riverside Mozart means luxury, local culture and loving life. No sense is left untouched. Dine in one of the first-class restaurants. Decompress in the spa with sauna and massage. Discover another world on an excursion. Or simply delight in an Earl Grey or a Taittinger on the Vista Deck as you sail serenely through the landscape of the Wachau Valley. It’s one big treat for the senses.
Time ticks differently on the Riverside Mozart, as does the ship itself. It sets the standard for true luxury on the river. Enjoy suites instead of staterooms, the smallest alone measuring 215 square feet, while the Owner Suites deliver an expansive 883 square feet. No other river cruise ship on the Danube offers so much space combined, with a suite to crew ratio of 1:1. The service on board is exceptional, catering to standards enjoyed in luxury hotels the world over. When it comes to styling, different tastes can certainly divide opinion – but this ship is without a doubt uncompromisingly beautiful.
No day on the Riverside Mozart is like the other. But each one is unforgettable. Every route has its charm and every city is special. You enjoy the finest cuisine and sleep in exclusive suites.
OWNER’S SUITE, With the Owner’s Suite you can treat yourself to the greatest luxury in the truest sense of the word. It offers space for two to four guests and is a place of possibilities: a chat in front of the fireplace – and always the view through the French balcony windows, which bring the light and the landscape inside. Private dinners or a casual evening in front of the television are also possible. Those who reside here enjoy limousine transfers (e.g. from the airport to the ship) on the days of embarkation and departure.
MOZART SUITE, The great composer was space consuming. You too can be as a guest in this suite of the same name. And there’s a good chance you’ll look more wrinkled here than Mozart himself without effort: as for the guests of the Owner’s Suite, the butler will collect your clothes and bring them back washed and ironed. You can write down your wonderful experiences in your diary at your own desk. And this suite also offers French balconies and limousine service.
PENTHOUSE SUITE, Seahorses enjoy the peace and quiet and like to withdraw. And that’s exactly what you can do in our penthouse suites on the Seahorse Deck. All with a view of the landscape passing by through the French balcony windows. Perfect comfort in 30 square meters. With a walk-in closet, a sofa bed for the child and two sinks in the bathroom. And if someone has dreams that are too expansive – no problem. These suites also offer twin beds as an option. And the luxury of limousine transfers.
RIVERSIDE SUITE WITH FRENCH BALCONY, Nomen est omen: Everything is in flux here in two senses. And it is always in sight from the French balcony. Enjoy style and comfort, perfectly formed, a king-size bed or alternatively twin beds and for a short nap in the afternoon there are also cozy sofas in the riverside suites. A great pleasure far away from everyday life – for romance in togetherness. But also for solo travellers.
