Riviera River Cruises has announced that its new all-suite MS Geoffrey Chaucer will launch in spring 2020. The 443-ft. ship will accommodate 169 guests on itineraries on the Danube, Main and Rhine rivers and Dutch waterways.

The ship will feature amenities such as a panoramic observation lounge, main restaurant, fitness center, spa, wellness area, boutique and sun deck. A more intimate restaurant called Bistro will be located towards the stern of the ship, and will offer an open kitchen with a chef ready to take special orders as well as panorama windows that allow alfresco dining.

“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’ v.p. of sales and marketing North America, in a press statement. “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.”

Suites aboard the Geoffrey Chaucer will be a minimum of 172 sq. ft.; Diamond and Ruby deck suites will bring the French balcony inside with floor-to-ceiling sliding-glass windows. Deluxe Balcony Suites on the Diamond Deck will feature floor-to-ceiling windows and sliding doors that open onto a small private balcony.
