Riviera River Cruises will launch the new all-suite MS Geoffrey Chaucer in spring 2020.
The 443-foot Geoffrey Chaucer will accommodate 169 guests on itineraries on the Danube, Main and Rhine Rivers and Dutch waterways.
“At Riviera River Cruises, we take pride in maintaining the youngest fleet of ships in Europe, and we’re excited to continue this tradition with the launch of the new MS Geoffrey Chaucer in 2020,” said Marilyn Conroy, Riviera River Cruises’ vice-president, sales and marketing, North America. “This will be our sixth all-suite ship and, like our other new ships in recent years, it also includes a second restaurant, giving guests their choice of dining experience.”
The 443-foot Geoffrey Chaucer will be a state-of-the-art, all-suite ship featuring a unique yet exquisite blend of rich, sustainable hardwoods, gleaming brass, polished copper, sparkling glass, intricate wrought iron and beautiful lighting. Amenities will include a panoramic observation lounge, main restaurant, fitness centre, spa, wellness area, boutique and sun deck. A more intimate second restaurant at the stern of the ship – The Bistro – offers an open kitchen with a chef ready to take special orders, as well as panorama windows that allow for al fresco dining.
The Geoffrey Chaucer’s 88 suites will be a minimum of 172 square feet. It will accommodate 169 guests and 44 crew. Diamond and Ruby Deck suites will bring the French balcony inside with 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 on to a small private balcony.
