Vantage Deluxe World Travel - ms River Voyager
Vantage Deluxe World Travel launched its newest and most luxurious river ship, the ms River Voyager, in March 2016. This lovely vessel has a marvelous jazzy musical theme and sails the great rivers of Europe for Vantage Travel.
Vantage River Voyager Musical Theme
Guests boarding the River Voyager will immediately notice the musical theme of the cruise ship. The lovely atrium and the hallways reflect the rest of the musical decor.
Blue Note Lounge on the Vantage River Voyager
The Blue Note Lounge is the forward observation lounge on the Vantage Travel ms River Voyager. This comfortable lounge offers comfortable seating, terrific views of the river scenery, a bar, library, and dance floor. The Blue Note also has outdoor seating forward of the lounge.
Dance Floor in the Blue Note Lounge on the River Voyager
On a river ship with a jazz music theme, you'd expect a dance floor, and the River Voyager has one in the Blue Note Lounge.

This small library on the ms River Voyager is located off the Blue Note Lounge. It is filled with travel guides of the region, playing cards, and board games. A glass partition divides it from the lounge.
Coffee Corner in the Blue Note Lounge of the Vantage ms River Voyager
Specialty coffees, teas, and hot chocolate are always available on the ms River Voyager at this self-serve coffee station in the Blue Note Lounge. Cookies and snacks are available in the afternoon.
Outdoor Forward Seating on the Vantage ms River Voyager
Many river ship guests love to sit outside in the shade when the weather allows, and the River Voyager is no different. This area is forward from the Blue Note Lounge. Outdoor seating is also available aft of the Cotton Club Lounge and on the Solaris sun deck.
Cotton Club Lounge on the Vantage ms River Voyager
The intimate Cotton Club Lounge is aft on the Vantage Travel ms River Voyager. I love the soft green and white decor. The Cotton Club has a late riser's breakfast and a small lunch buffet each day for those looking for an alternate dining venue.

This photo of the ms River Voyager Cotton Club Lounge shows the glass roof of the lounge. It's almost like sitting in a greenhouse and is very nice when the weather is a little cool or rainy.
Aft Outdoor Seating on the Vantage River Voyager
This small, quiet area aft of the Cotton Club Lounge on the Vantage River Voyager is a great place to have a cup of coffee or tea and enjoy the picturesque river scenery.
Vantage River Voyager Sun Deck
This large sun deck on the Vantage River Voyager has both covered and sunny seating. It's the best place on the river ship to get 360-degree views of the river scenery.
Bourbon Street Bistro Dining Room on the Vantage ms River Voyager
The Vantage Deluxe World Travel ms River Voyager has one large dining room, the Bourbon Street Bistro. Three meals a day are served in the restaurant, and it offers great river views.
Rack of Lamb Dinner on the Vantage River Voyager
Food on the ms River Voyager was very good on our river cruise, and this rack of lamb was one of the many diverse dishes I enjoyed.
Tea Time on the Vantage River Voyager
The chefs from the River Voyager galley served a gorgeous (and delicious) high tea one afternoon while the river vessel was sailing on the Rhine River.
Deluxe Suite on the Vantage ms River Voyager
Each of the Deluxe Suites on the Vantage ms River Voyager is named for a famous jazz singer or musician. This one was named the "Glenn Miller Suite", and it even had a copy of his biography in the cabin so guests could read about this famous Big Band trombonist and bandleader.
Desk Area in a Deluxe Suite on the Vantage ms River Voyager
Check out this spacious desk and vanity area in the Deluxe Suite on the River Voyager. The suite also had a small refrigerator.
Sitting Areas in a Deluxe Suite on the Vantage ms River Voyager
The mattresses on the bed in the Deluxe Suites on the River Voyager had individual controls so that they could be tilted up and down. They kind of reminded me of a hospital bed! This feature is perfect for those who love to read in bed or just lie down and watch the river scenery slide by as you sail along one of the great rivers of Europe.
Bathroom in a Deluxe Suite on the Vantage ms River Voyager
This Deluxe Suite bathroom on the ms River Voyager is one of the largest and most luxurious I've ever seen on a river vessel. It features self-defogging mirrors, a soaker's tub, separate shower (with multiple jets), and dual sinks.
Category A Cabin on the Vantage River Voyager
Categories A, B, and C on the Vantage River Voyager all have 166 square feet, a French balcony, and a large shower in the bathroom. Category D is the same size but does not have a French balcony.
Single Standard Cabin on the Vantage River Voyager
The Vantage River Voyager has 8 single cabins on the lowest deck. Each only has 127 square feet but is perfect for a solo traveler. As seen in the next photo, the showers in these single cabins are smaller than those elsewhere on the ship, but still have a glass door (rather than a curtain) and large sink.
Bathroom in a Single Standard Cabin on the Vantage River Voyager
The bathroom in a single cabin on the ms River Voyager might seem small compared to the bathrooms in the rest of the river ship's accommodations, but it is actually quite nice for a small cabin and perfect for one person.
Fitness Center on the Vantage River Voyager
The fitness center on the ms River Voyager has a treadmill, stationary bicycle, and free weights. Guests can also get their exercise by walking on the Solaris sun deck or taking one of the complimentary bicycles ashore.
