About the ship
Filia Rheni II offers a great choice of on-board facilities. The top deck is the ideal alfresco spot from which to view the splendid landscape, while both lounges have panoramic windows so you can enjoy a drink there without missing the views. There's a partially-shaded sun deck, so whatever the weather you can relax on the sun loungers. If you'd like to work up an appetite a visit to the fitness area might be just the ticket, or maybe take a sauna before cooling off with a dip in the pool or Jacuzzi. The observation lounge is a quiet spot in which to enjoy a good book, do a crossword or check your emails. Wi-Fi (complimentary from 2018) is available throughout the ship.
Expect excellent food in the award-winning restaurant - tuck into to buffet breakfasts and look forward to waiter-served three-course lunches and four-course dinners where there's always a choice of main course. Complimentary wine, beer and soft drinks are served with both lunch and dinner, with tea and coffee available throughout the day in the lounge bar – just help yourself (on selected cruises only).
There is a lift runs between the restaurant, reception and lounge and also serves the Middle Deck. There is a chair lift running the few steps between reception and the Upper Deck cabins and also up to the Sun Deck. There is no lift or chair lift to the Lower Deck.
Each deluxe cabin has a shower and wc (four of the 75 cabins have a bath), safe and television with satellite channels. Cabins also have an international telephone, individual air-conditioning controls and a hairdryer. Plus, as of 2016, Upper-deck cabins have French balconies.
