Riviera River Cruises will launch its sixth all-suite ship in 2020, the five-star MS Geoffrey Chaucer.

The 443-foot MS Geoffrey Chaucer will accommodate 169 guests on itineraries on the Danube, Main and Rhine Rivers, and Dutch waterways.

The vessel’s 88 suites will measure a minimum of 172 square feet. Diamond and Ruby Deck suites will bring the French balcony inside with stunning views from floor-to-ceiling, sliding-glass windows. Deluxe Balcony Suites on the Diamond Deck will feature floor-to-ceiling windows and sliding doors that open onto a small private balcony.

Amenities will include a panoramic observation lounge, main restaurant, fitness center, spa, wellness area, boutique, and sun deck.

Like Riviera River Cruises’ other new ships in recent years, the vessel will also include a second restaurant, giving guests their choice of dining experience. A more intimate, second restaurant at the stern of the ship – The Bistro – will offer an open kitchen with a chef ready to take special orders, as well as providing panorama windows that allow for al fresco dining.

Riviera River Cruises offers 15 itineraries on 10 rivers and waterways, including exclusive departures for solo travelers — on one of the youngest fleets sailing Europe’s rivers and waterways.

United Kingdom-based Riviera River Cruises offers agents a lifetime commission incentive: Once an agent has booked a client with Riviera, each subsequent booking made by that client will earn the agent commission, no matter how far into the future the booking is made.
