The Ship

MS Johann Strauss

The MS Johann Strauss – named after the famous Austrian composer of Viennese waltzes – is an absolute premium ship cruising between the North Sea and the Black Sea on the Danube and Rhine River. The public areas such as the restaurant or the panorama salon were renovated and completely redesigned in 2017/18.

The Premium cabins (15 m²) and suites (19.5 m²) on the Danube Deck have French balconies with sliding doors. On the Rhine Deck there are Deluxe cabins (15 m²) with openable semi-French balconies, Junior suites (18 m²) and Standard cabins (15 m²) with non-openable panorama windows. The cabins on the Moselle Deck are slightly smaller (12 m²) and have smaller, non-openable windows. All cabins are equipped with adjustable air condition, shower and lavatory, flat screen TV, two beds (on request also separated / on Moselle Deck just separated), wardrobe, hair dryer and telephone.

Public Areas

The ship has a lobby / reception, a panorama lounge with bar, a panorama restaurant as well as a library. The spacious sun deck is equipped with sun sails, seating areas and sun beds and the passengers can enjoy plenty of space for peace and relaxation. All cabins are outside cabins.

MS Johann Strauss

Introducing the newly renovated and renamed MS Johann Strauss (formerly MS Sound of Music). Not only has the ship received a new name, but it will also be receiving a new updated look. Each cabin of this premium ship provides a relaxing private sanctuary on the river. Like any luxury hotel, individual staterooms offer a comfortable retreat after a full day of exploring and a window to drink in the passing scenery. Each has a fully equipped bathroom with a shower, bath & body products, hairdryer, and built-in closets. Furthermore, each cabin is furnished with a safe deposit box, individual thermostat for air conditioning and heating, direct-dial telephone and a flat-screen TV with satellite. All mattresses are new as well.
