The MS Serenade 2

The stunning MS Serenade 2 was introduced to the Shearings fleet for 2016, and its cutting-edge style and inviting atmosphere have proven to be a well-deserved hit with Shearings river cruisers! Offering a truly unique cruising experience, this beautiful and sleek ship exudes a luxurious, modern and spacious atmosphere on board. A real highlight of the Serenade 2 is the superbly-designed Forward Observation Lounge where you can sit back and relax as you admire truly breathtaking views along the beautiful Danube.

Life on board

Allow us to welcome you onboard our newest addition to the Shearings river cruise family, the MS Serenade 2. Inaugurated in 2007, this beautiful, modern ship guarantees the most comfortable possible surroundings for her passengers.

The cabins on board the Serenade 2 are amongst the very best and the largest of any river cruise vessel, they boast hotel-style beds (not berths or bunks) and a well-appointed bathroom, with WC, bath and separate shower. All cabins feature a flat-screen TV, phone, mini-fridge, tea/coffee making facilities, safe and hairdryer, plus floor-to-ceiling sliding French windows on the upper two decks.

Relax on-board, where our highly professional crew and cruise manager, will be happy to help. Why not enjoy the spacious Sun Deck which incorporates covered shaded areas, and space to relax in one of the plentiful deck chairs or sun loungers. Perhaps partake in a game of giant chess or visit the on-board fitness suite which incorporates a small gym and sauna.


Food and drink

Enjoy contemporary cuisine in the chic Mendelssohn Restaurant on board, located on the Mozart Deck, where each day begins with a sumptuous breakfast buffet, with English and Continental delicacies available.

At lunchtime, sit down to a mouth-watering buffet, helping yourself to a fantastic selection of foods, from cold meats and cheeses to a choice of hot dishes. Come dinnertime, you will be treated to a four-course evening meal, sampling gourmet dishes from our superb on-board chefs. Not only this, you will also be treated to an impressive Captain’s gala dinner during your cruise, which is sure to be a wonderfully memorable experience.

And what better way to the end a day spent discovering the delights of the Danube, than a visit to the superb Captain’s Club for a nightcap before retiring to your comfortable bed?
