From the grand entrance of the marble lobby, sweeping scenic views from the Sun Deck and floor-to-ceiling windows in the restaurant and lounge, there’s an unmistakable opulence about MS Charles Dickens.
Tropical hardwoods, polished brass, wrought iron and thick wool carpets flow throughout for an inviting and luxurious feel wherever the rivers take you.
The main restaurant operates an open-dining policy and with more than 60 hot and cold options on offer, why not start the morning with MS Charles Dickens’ full breakfast buffet? Later in the day opt to grab something quick and easy from the lunch buffet but be sure to leave room for afternoon tea and the chef’s special patisserie. The culinary highlight is the four-course dinner: entrée, soup, main and dessert, all in the elegant ambience of a first-class restaurant. The menus include international classics, along with dishes that reflect the regions you pass, with little touches including hand-picked selections from local markets.
Though your Riviera cruise is a no-frills affair, there’s still plenty to keep you entertained when you’re not ashore. There’s the sun-soaked Sun Deck with its comfortable loungers and chairs, a putting a green for those who want to practise their swing, a small pool so you can cool off or do a few lengths, and for those who have a competitive streak there’s a giant chess board for you to meet your match.
MS Charles Dickens’ other amenities include a hairdressing salon, small boutique where you can shop for souvenirs and keepsakes, plus a wellness area equipped with a sauna, steam room and fitness equipment for you to use at your leisure.
