Deluxe Class Boats + Barges
The Deluxe class ships are the most luxurious and spacious of all the ships we use. They are generally all newly built or recently renovated, and offer a step up in aesthetics with tasteful furnishings and decor.
The boats that fall in this class are very comfortable and tastefully furnished ships with a special saloon and a separate bar. Cabins are larger (more than 9 square meters/97 square feet) and come equipped with private bathrooms, air-conditioning and heating as well as flat twin beds (no bunk beds), and many times offer daily cleaning of cabins. Guests can enjoy a hearty breakfast buffet and 3/4-course dinners at night. In addition to the tour guide, there are at least 4 crew members on board.
In addition to the services available on the other category of ships, the Deluxe ships also have:
- air-conditioning in all cabins
- flat twin beds in all cabins
- a separate bar/saloon
- more spacious cabins
- hearty breakfast buffets
- fully equipped private bathrooms
- well-equipped private shower/toilet in each cabin
