Ship Details
Lord Byron
Stylish furnishings, classic lines and sophistication of a luxurious ocean liner.

Intuitive, unobtrusive service is graceful, efficient yet friendly as you might expect from a Swiss operated ship with 35 staff serving just 140 guests. This outstanding ratio of 4:1 allows a personal touch which makes such a difference to your cruise. Plus unlike other vessels typically carrying up to 200 passengers, you’ll enjoy simply far more space – as well as a smaller, more intimate dining experience.

On the Diamond Deck is the magnificent panoramic observation lounge, the heart of the ship with wonderful views as you move along the river. You’ll love the quality feel, the genteel ambience, the marble-tiled bar and the choice of sumptuous leather armchairs and soft modern settees. On the Ruby Deck is the main restaurant – with cuisine of the absolute highest order, attentive service with just four or six people at most tables. The Sun Deck – and especially the forward viewing area - is perfect for watching the historic riverside villages, steep vine-clad valley sides and other scenic wonders glide serenely by. It’s well equipped with plenty of comfortable outdoor chairs and sun loungers, a small splash pool where you can cool off, and a full bar service. Another very special feature of the Lord Byron is its purpose-designed and extensive spa. You can reserve the spa for your private use to take a sauna or use the steam room, or perhaps visit the onboard hairdresser (small additional fee).
