Introduction

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.

The 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.
