MS BLUE DANUBE
365 DAYS A YEAR IN ACTION
The MS Blue Danube is the latest addition to the DDSG Blue Danube fleet. The ship was originally christened “MS Schlögen”, because it was built in 1990 for trips on the Danube in Upper Austria – for cruises on the meandering Danube at Schlögen. Its area of deployment was, however, soon changed to Vienna. From 2007 onwards, the MS Schlögen operated as a sightseeing ship for DDSG Blue Danube on Vienna’s Danube Canal. The ship is mainly used for trips on the Danube Canal and for charter cruises. It lets you explore the Danube’s natural surroundings and offers views of Vienna’s nicest facades along the Danube Canal.
In the spring of 2014, the now somewhat older pleasure boat was completely renovated. The ship was stripped down to the hull and given a fresh, maritime interior. Since being relaunched on Monday, 12 May 2014, the vessel now cruises the Danube around Vienna under the new name, “MS Blue Danube”. Features of the MS Blue Danube include particularly high ceilings, a comfortable lounge on the main deck, an exclusive captain’s lounge on the upper deck and a large open-air deck. Gigantic flat screens provide the passengers with interesting information on the route and about the ship, while a sound concept and sophisticated lighting create a pleasant atmosphere.
When boarding the ship, you enter the main deck. Towards the bow, there is a small café for around 25 people that offers panoramic views. Here, you have the best view of the ever-changing scenery along the Danube Canal and the Danube River. Amidships, the large lounge offers space for 44 passengers. The upper deck is reached via a flight of stairs. Here, there is a large open-air deck, a section of which is covered, as well as a charming captain’s lounge, where you can take a seat directly behind the captain. A gallery right in front of the bridge gives passengers a wonderful panoramic view of the passing landscape.
Our restaurant service will impress you with Viennese delicacies from our highly efficient galley. The MS Blue Danube provides an ambient, comfortable setting particularly suitable for weddings and birthday parties as well as for anniversaries and small company functions, and therefore helps create unforgettable memories.
