Balcony Suite

What are the benefits of booking a Balcony Suite on a European river cruise?


Setting eyes on Europe’s majestic architecture, fairytale castles and sprawling vineyard terraces for the first time is always an emotional experience. Whether it’s your first time river cruising through Europe or you’ve travelled here before, there’s nothing quite like enjoying the ever-changing scenery from the comfort of your private balcony.
Considering a European river cruise for your next holiday? Here are four great reasons to choose a Balcony Suite.

1. Elevated Views & More Natural Light

One of the key attractions of Europe river cruising is the chance to admire the beautiful passing scenery of historic castles, timeless towns and picturesque vineyards. Rather than heading upstairs to the Sun Deck to take in the panoramic views, you can enjoy these scenes at your convenience, from the comfort of your suite’s balcony. Wake up to the sights, sounds and smells of Europe as you arrive at a new charming town, whether it’s the clattering of hooves as a horse trots past or the smell of freshly baked bread from a local market. The prestigious upper level Horizon Deck offers elevated views from our full length balconies. With more natural light bathing your suite, you will find it much more spacious, especially during the winter.

2. Extra Benefits

As well as the beautiful river views and additional space of a Balcony Suite, you can also receive extra benefits. For those choosing a Grand Balcony Suite, you can look forward to an in-suite Nespresso machine for that added home comfort, a pillow menu for the perfect night’s sleep and complimentary Wi-Fi. Why not order a delicious continental breakfast which can be enjoyed on your balcony, enjoy pre-dinner canapés and after-dinner sweet treats served in your suite as well as two items of laundry per cabin, per day. Guests staying in the Owner’s One Bedroom Suite will also receive an invitation to dinner at the Captain’s Table.
