Ave Maria - cruise chip


Confort Premium


This Italian ship was totally rebuilt in 2011 in order to meet the most challenging clients’ requests. Only the hull of the original 1970s sand digger sailing along the Po has remained and the Ave Maria is now brand new. It was completely designed by a renowned Italian architectural firm. Its shapes, colours and materials have been chosen carefully in order to create a warm, sober and yet sophisticated atmosphere.



Description of the cabins

The Ave Maria has a total of 17 cabins :

  • 10 standard twin cabins below deck (approx. 11 sq.m., 3 of these can become triple cabins, with a bunk bed)
  • 4 superior twin cabins above deck (approx. 11 sq.m., 2 of these can become a triple or four bedded cabin, with 2 bunk beds) 
  • 3 bunk bed cabins (approx. 7,5 sq.m., also available as a single cabin). 

All cabins have a large window (the ones in the superior cabins can also be partially opened), comfortable low beds, en-suite facilities, air conditioning and safety box. Bed size is 2.00 x 0.80 m.
