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.

      Please note: Astor does not offer any dedicated children’s facilities.

      Dress Code

      During the day, attitudes are very relaxed and informality is the key. Casual clothing is quite sufficient during the days at sea and for time spent ashore. On certain shore excursions and at some religious sites, discretion should be used so as not to cause inadvertent offence with inappropriate clothing. Advice will be given on board in such cases. Every day, the Daily Programme suggests, as a guide, a mode of dress for that particular evening’s events. Generally there are two ‘formal’ or gala nights planned on each cruise when many gentlemen wear a dinner jacket, although a lounge suit is quite acceptable. The ladies on these occasions have a chance to dress up and often opt for evening or cocktail dresses. On evenings proposed as ‘informal’, a suit or smart jacket and trousers, with or without a tie, for the men is suggested and the ladies have further opportunities to look elegant in a cocktail dress, trouser suits and stylish co-ordinates. A ‘casual’ recommendation often covers evenings spent in port or when a special event such as a deck party is scheduled. In these cases, the choice of dress is left entirely to you.

      Disabled Facilities

      If you or one of your travelling companions has a mobility limitation or special needs, it is essential that you contact the Cruise & Maritime office to allow them to discuss your requirements before you make a booking. In the interests of safety, and in order to ascertain whether you or members of the party travelling with you have specific mobility or other special needs, you will be asked a series of questions. The answers to these will enable them to determine that you, any other person in your booking, and any equipment that you or they are intending to bring onboard can be carried safely for the duration of your cruise. This will then be confirmed in writing to you, and will enable your booking to proceed. A cruise is quite unlike a land based holiday and the ships of their fleet are not ideally suited to prospective passengers in wheelchairs or those who have limited mobility. It should be noted that the layout of the ship could considerably restrict such passengers’ movement around the vessel and indeed preclude access to some of the ports of call, where gangway conditions are not conducive or passengers are conveyed ashore by tender. At anchorage ports, access to or from the tenders or launches requires a certain level of mobility which is necessary to manage the steps to the tender platform and to physically board and disembark from the vessel. It should therefore be noted that, on safety grounds, those with restricted mobility may be unable to go ashore at such ports.

      Special Dietary Requirements

      If you, or a member of your party, have a particular dietary requirement, restaurants are able to offer the following dietary options:Gluten-Free, Lactose-Free, Low Cholesterol, Low Fat, Low Salt and Vegetarian Meals. If you have not done so at the time of booking, please advise any requirements no later than two weeks prior to departure. Kosher and Halal meals are available but only if requested at least 6 weeks prior to sailing.

      Age Restrictions

      Astor welcomes accompanied children and teenagers however, it should be noted that there are no dedicated recreational facilities for these age groups.

      Infants under the age of six months at time of sailing are not allowed onboard.

      Passengers must be 18 years old or above to be allowed to consume alcoholic beverages.
