Welcome aboard the MPS Da Vinci

On first sight, you might well mistake the MPS Da Vinci for a luxury yacht rather than a river cruise vessel, and this luxurious ambience continues on board the ship, with beautiful decor that has been expertly designed to create a warm and welcoming atmosphere. Due to the MPS Da Vinci’s popularity with Shearings river cruises, she sails along a number of stunning scenic routes, including the Dutch Waterways, Rhine, Moselle, Saar, Main and Danube rivers.

Life on board

Setting foot on board the MPS Da Vinci feels like you’re walking into an exclusive floating private members’ club. And it’s a club where you’ll always feel more than welcome.

The spacious lounge feels like an inviting front room in a good friend’s home. Sink into the large, comfortable sofa or warm your feet by the open fire. And if you want to make the most of the great weather, the Sun Deck is like a welcoming living room – albeit one that’s outdoors!

You’ll find peace and tranquillity in the impressive library, the ideal place to lose yourself in a good book. Or if you’re feeling a little more energetic, a workout in the fitness area followed by a relaxing sauna is just the ticket. Wireless internet access is available, so why not hire the ship’s laptop and let everyone back home know just how much you’re enjoying your MPS Da Vinci experience? They’ll wish they were there!

And although the MPS Da Vinci exudes luxury, it’s certainly not formal and stuffy. You’ll find the friendly, relaxed atmosphere you’d expect from Shearings, with helpful, professional staff for whom nothing’s too much trouble and like-minded travellers to share your MPS Da Vinci experience.


When you’re on holiday it’s important to have those creature comforts, and for this reason, our cabins all boast satellite TV (when in port), centrally-regulated air conditioning and heating. All cabins are also fitted with private bathroom facilities, including a shower and toilet, as well as a mini safe.

Food and drink

The MPS Da Vinci’s luxury certainly extends to its elegant restaurant, situated on the Main Deck. You’ll dine in style and admire the breathtaking views throughout your voyage. Help yourself to the breakfast buffet, with a wide choice of English and Continental items on offer. At lunch, you can choose from a sumptuous buffet or a three-course meal served to your table. Your four-course evening meal includes starter, soup, choice of fish or meat main course (vegetarian option on request) and a tempting dessert – all expertly crafted by the on-board chef. And on one evening you’ll enjoy a very special five-course Captain’s dinner – one of the many highlights of the MPS Da Vinci experience.
