Mr Bridge - European River Cruise

Brabant Cruising the Middle Moselle Valley

Exclusive Mr Bridge European river cruise hosted by Bernard Magee

Step aboard Brabant, Fred. Olsen’s dedicated river cruising ship. Built in 2006, this elegant and comfortable vessel is in keeping with the British style of our ocean-going cruise ships. Brabant’s bright and spacious public areas and 79 well-equipped rooms and suites, spread across four decks, provide the intimate, home-from-home feel which Fred. Olsen’s guests already know and love.

Cruise ship staples such as swimming pools, a number of lounges and on-going activities are not in evidence on board, [ReadMoreMob] making way for a comfortable ambience and ample space in which to relax and enjoy the river cruise experience with around 150 fellow guests. What's more, Brabant's friendly, attentive crew speak English and guests can pay in pound sterling on board, while the food and fantastic service have been specifically tailored to suit British taste.

Smaller-sized and classically designed, Brabant lends herself perfectly to Fred. Olsen's approach to cruising. Making the most of the boat's size advantage, we can expertly craft simply unforgettable river cruise itineraries which do not only feature some of Europe's most breathtaking river scenery and cities, but also include chances to enjoy journeys along spellbinding, size-restricted sections of rivers during daytime hours and calls into stunning destinations that larger ships can't access.

  • Bridge hosted by Bernard Magee and your Mr Bridge Team
  • Duplicate bridge every day
  • Bridge on selected afternoons
  • Two seminars and a set hand session
  • Mr Bridge quiz
  • Ship exclusivity for the Mr Bridge group
