  • Statistics

Built in 2014, the state-of-the-art, five-star MS William Shakespeare was specially commissioned and designed to Riviera Travel's exacting specifications and is, without doubt, one of the world’s finest river cruise ships.  The ship carries just 140 passengers and with 35 crew; a 4:1 guest-to-staff ratio ensures excellent service levels.  With many similar size vessels carrying 180 passengers or more, you will find the extra space - especially in the restaurant - very noticeable indeed.


Cabins on the Romeo (lower) deck are slightly smaller at 14 square metres (151 square feet), but feature the same amenities apart from one armchair and table and have smaller, fixed windows. Cabins for sole occupancy are available on this deck at no supplement (subject to availability).
