The Art of Slow Travelling

 

    Last summer Bob Bogard from San Francisco wrote in Serenité’s guest book: “A long to be remembered experience of the finest quality.” And young Gabrielle from Switzerland wrote: “On our cruise through Berlin and the Mecklenburg’s Lake District we have learned the art of In brandenburgischen Revierentravelling slow, in good company, while indulging in glorious food.”

    Exactly these feelings match the ship owners’ intentions when they decided to build their own river boat: Serenité, or serenity, the perfect name for an entire program giving cheer, calm, relaxation, and the luxury of forgetting. As soon as you step aboard the small exclusive river boat, you leave behind the stress and duties of everyday life. There is no rush, hustle and bustle. You just lean back and enjoy the experience of nature and the ease of good life. Serenity begins.

 

 A Toast to the Small Difference

 

    While most of the river boats sail during the Zugbrücke bei Kummersdorfnight to reach another port for another excursion, Serenité follows a different rhythm. She sails by daylight hours through magnificent landscapes and stopping at various places of interest.

    At night she may rest in a quiet and idyllic port, in a buzzling city or perhaps in the middle of nowhere. While you do nothing but enjoy the serene travel, the experience ashore, maybe a night cap before retiring, and no noise will be disturbing your sleep.

 

 Travel Talk with the Captain

 

    Sailing Serenité gives a feeling of a strolling on a river rather than a city hopping trip. Of course there is a day-by-day schedule for each Auf der Havelcruise. However, this is only tentative, and may be changed due to water and weather conditions, lock repairs or local events.

    That’s why the captain discusses the routing with his guests shortly after embarkation. But even during the cruise you may say “Stop, it’s nice here, we want to stay here.” This high grade of flexibility is one more reason why the ship will remain an insider’s tip.

 

 Fresh Cuisine and selected Wines

 

    Is there anything better than enjoying fine dining in good company? Either in the elegantly laid restaurant or al fresco on the sundeck, as Fein eingedecktsoon as the weather permits. The chef prepares new fresh creations every day, using what is offered by the regions and seasons. Just accompany him shopping in the market and help choose your next meal. Such a venture is not being offered very often. In addition fine local wines are offered complimen- tary with the meals. And if you feel for a cocktail inbetweeen, just have one, all bar drinks are included in the cruise rate as well.

 

 The ideal Boat for like-minded Guests

 

    As ships get larger and larger to accomodate more and more tourists, individuality and flexibility has ever more value. Serenité offers both. In der BarThere are six comfortable cabins available for 12 guests. Thus making the boat so ideal for a full charter by a small group of like-minded guests, good friends or family. Or for a company’s incentive. Actually there are quite a few reasons to celebrate events of your own choice and to your own taste. And wether you travel individually or you charter the ship - bookings of more than six months ahead get a remarkable reduction. For more details click on ‘Rates & Services’.
