Why cruise on this ship?
Exclusively chartered for Saga guests, this elegant, compact vessel is the ideal introduction to river cruising in Europe and has the great advantage of navigating routes which larger vessels cannot.
As a result, it's small enough not to overwhelm yet large enough for you to find your own space, from a quiet corner in the Panorama lounge, enjoying the view from the sun deck or relaxing in your cabin, watching the scenery pass by. With no more than 80 passengers on board, the atmosphere is warm and informal – perfect for making new friends.
DiningMeals are served in the comfortable restaurant, the international cuisine offers a choice of options: a buffet-style breakfast, a three-course lunch also served buffet-style, and a four-course dinner.
The Restaurant is located on the main deck.

EntertainingYour cabin aboard the Johannes Brahms has a large window – all are well above the waterline – affording better views of the river. Cabins are compact but comfortable and have an en suite with shower, wc, safe, hairdryer, television, mini-fridge and individually controlled air conditioning. Each also has a small desk and two chairs.
The bar can be located on the Upper Deck.

EnrichmentThe Saga cruise director will always be mingling with guests and making sure everything's running smoothly. They'll no doubt organise a few impromptu games and quizzes too, for those who wish to join in. After dinner the pace remains just as leisurely. If the ship is berthed, you might like to take a stroll along the river bank – it's very easy to come and go as you please. Or if you're staying on board there might be a pianist playing, perhaps music to dance to, and occasionally local performers are invited on board to put on a show.
An exciting service led by our on board team of experts, brimming with local knowledge. You’ll find them at the travel desk on your ship, ready to help you get the most out of your time on land.
More than a normal excursion
Of course there will be a varied programme of shore excursions each insightful and fascinating in their own right. But Explore Ashore is much more than that.
Rather than a tour of thousands, let us show you the main sights of your destination on a small‑group excursion. You won’t feel rushed or herded around on the tourist trail. Its far more personal, and memorable too.
Kids and teensPlease note: there are no dedicated facilities for Kids & Teens onboard the ship.
AccommodationThe cosy quarters of the Johannes Brahms have a timeless decor, with soothing earthy tones in the lounge and restaurant. You'll find a bar in the lounge, perfect for a sundowner after a day trip or nightcap to round off your evening. Relax in a chair on the sun deck – the perfect spot to watch the ever-changing landscape as you sail along.
