MS Robert Burns Overview

MS Robert Burns Overview

The five-star MS Robert Burns is the result of years of painstaking research into the perfect river cruise vessel. It is difficult to convey just how extraordinary this new vessel is, it would be easy to just describe it as ‘luxurious’ but that wouldn’t be doing the MS Robert Burns justice. Riviera have created a unique blend of understated taste, style and elegance using sustainable, rich hardwoods, gleaming brass and polished copper, sparkling glass and intricate wrought iron. The MS Robert Burns carries 44 in-house trained crew members servicing just 169 guests, giving a ratio that is concurrent with Riviera’s first class service levels.
