Astor

Extensively refurbished in 2010, she is fully stabilised and air-conditioned with accommodation for just 600 privileged guests. The unique size of Astor offers an intimate country house style allowing you to enjoy the camaraderie that comes from being among a select number of guests and to be pampered by the very attentive crew.

When travelling on larger ships it’s easy to feel intimidated, but on Astor it’s a different story. Whilst on board, you will be recognised by name and be able to enjoy a sense of familiarity not offered by other cruise lines. With fine cuisine, high class entertainment, comfortable lounges and accommodation, our philosophy is simply to ensure your voyage is an outstanding and memorable experience.

Astor has seven passenger decks and her wide range of public facilities include the impressive Waldorf Restaurant offering a traditional two sitting fixed time dining option, you will also have the chance to dine in the intimate Admiral's Salon (Asian Fusion Cuisine) or the Commodore's Salon (Italian/Mediterranean Cuisine) dining rooms at a small additional charge. As an alternative, the more informal Übersee Club Bistro. There are five lounge areas - the theatre style Astor Lounge, for some truly sparkling entertainment from the wonderful show-team; the elegant Captain’s Club, a perfect venue for pre-dinner cocktails; the intimate Hanse Bar which leads onto the stylish Sun Terrace, with wonderful panoramic ocean views; and the Poolside Bar.

Other facilities include a well stocked Library, attractive Card Room, internet café and a shopping arcade featuring a boutique, jeweller and perfumery. The beautifully appointed Wellness Centre offers hairdressing and beauty treatments, an indoor swimming pool, ocean view gym with fitness and exercise equipment, and sauna and massage facilities.
