Your Accommodation

MPS Lady Anne

Since 2002 Captain Wido has been welcoming guests aboard the popular MPS Lady Anne. The charismatic Dutchman and his handpicked crew are undoubtedly why guests fall in love with this small ship, returning year on year to cruise Europe’s waterways on this unique heritage vessel. Captain Wido has created a floating home from home with the emphasis on old-fashioned comfort rather than luxury. However, he runs a tight ship, and from the spotless brass furnishings and smart uniforms, to the well-presented meals and sparkling glassware, the crew’s attention to detail is second to none. Carrying just one hundred guests, MPS Lady Anne is a vessel that simply oozes authenticity, and for anyone looking to enjoy a friendly, relaxed atmosphere, she is the perfect ship to explore the Rhine and Moselle rivers, or the Dutch and Belgian waterways.
