After years of painstaking research to create the most perfect vessels afloat, a new era in river cruising dawns as Riviera Travel introduce their brand new, state of the art, ‘all suite’ ships. Swiss operated and truly world-class, they are absolutely delighted to present the five-star MS Oscar Wilde.
It is customary aboard all cruise ships worldwide to give a gratuity at the end of a cruise, providing, of course, you have received good service. Riviera Travel emphasise that the amount you give is entirely discretionary, and is then divided equally among the crew on board. Riviera Travel are often asked for guidance on the amount, and suggest between €5 and €10 per person per day.
Again at your discretion they recommend tipping your local guides and drivers at the end of each tour, for which you can use the following guidelines:
- Local guides €2 per person, per day
- Drivers €1 per person, per day
Should you also wish to give a gratuity to your Riviera Cruise Director and Tour Manager, this is also at your discretion.

The Diamond Deck is where you will find the very heart of the ship - the superb panoramic observation lounge and bar; a lounge in every sense of the word, complete with plenty of comfortable leather armchairs and sumptuous sofas where you can sink into warmly colourful cushions in beautiful quality fabrics with a freshly made cup of tea. A thick wool carpet feels lovely underfoot and the tasteful contemporary lighting above creates a welcoming and refined ambience, further complemented by the discreet and intuitive service resplendent of the finest five-star hotels. So just sit back with your favourite cocktail and take in the truly mesmerising view.
After a superb dinner in the restaurant perhaps it’s time for a digestif accompanied by the soothing tones of the ship’s pianist or unwind with a book from the smartly wood panelled library.
Head on up to the truly spectacular deck and watch life ashore slip by from the comfort of a sun lounger, perhaps under shade if the weather gets too hot! There’s always the refreshing splash pool too or why not try your hand on the putting green.
On the Emerald Deck is the fitness centre, perfect for working off all those delicious meals or for something less strenuous treat yourself to a relaxing massage. So you will always look your best there is a hairdresser’s too which also offers manicure and pedicure treatments.
Simply put, these world-class ships, elegant and refined in the truest sense, take the idea of river cruising to another level – it really doesn’t get better than this!
