Aboard the MS Charles Dickens, the interior was designed by the same team that fashioned the 5 star Antonio Bellucci. Expect rich finishes with plenty of wood and chrome giving a feeling of elegance and style throughout.Accommodation
High quality dining is an integral part of any river cruise experience, as exemplified aboard MS Charles Dickens. 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.Dining
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.
Then, as the evening progresses into darkness, subtle lighting evolves down on the Upper Deck, through colour and intensity accompanied by gentle piano background music, creating a very special ambience. However should you prefer a good book to read you can always visit the library, which, with its leather-effect wall linings, offers a genteel environment reminiscent of the golden age of cruising.Life on Board
