Built as a state-of-the-art luxury ship, the William Shakespeare is a specially tailored and perfected ship of wonder. Made from fine hardwoods, and beautiful carpets and furnishings, the atmosphere you are greeted with is a pride of Riviera.

 Fitted with panoramic windows, and laid out with keen detail, the William Shakespeare is as magnificent as its namesake, telling a memorable story of its own to all on board.

Cuisine and Dining on MS William Shakespeare

The primary venue on board is the Restaurant, with high-quality linens atop each table and large tinted panoramic windows to enjoy the scenery from.

Here you can be served outstanding European cuisine, from breakfast buffets of omelettes and other favoured morning meals to extravagant dishes in the relaxed background of the evening’s dusk light.

The Midsummer bar is a fine location on the ship to enjoy a relaxing drink in good company. Offering a choice of an inside or outside area, you are given wonderful views of the scenery at all times. In the evening’s the chef will even prepare signature dishes for only 24 diners.

On the other hand, you may prefer the bustle of the Globe Lounge, a traditional and beautiful room at the bow of the ship that offers a high quality selection of drinks for you to sip at your leisure. 

Here you can find a skilled pianist playing soothing music as you take in the evening glow after the day’s activities or even find solace in a book from the library. 

Spa & Fitness on MS William Shakespeare

The ship has a small but well equipped fitness suite on board along with a wonderfully relaxing sauna. You will also find a hairdressing salon for those who wish to freshen themselves up or go for a new style entirely.

Recreation on MS William Shakespeare

On the sun deck you will find plenty of space for outdoor relaxation on the sun loungers, or even in the small splash pool. There is also a putting green and giant chess board if some light gaming is more your preference.

What our customers say

"I booked my first ever cruise on Tuesday 5th September 2017. After lengthy searching and much deliberation we booked through Iglu. So far, I am incredibly happy I booked with Iglu. This being our first cruise Debi proved very helpful. I was [also] very impressed with the level of assistance offered by Connie. She answered my questions and put my mind at rest. I am very impressed with all aspects of dealing with Iglu and I would like to take this opportunity to thank you for all your support. "

"Leighanne has been excellent dealing with my various queries this year. She has been kind and informative and obtained what i think is a good deal for me in October. She is persistent and very informative, so even when my 1st deal fell through I felt confident enough to approach her for this present Crystal cruise...”
