TUI River Cruises – Tui Maya – Accommodation

TUI offers a variety of types of accommodation on board TUI Maya and her sister ships.  All of the accommodation on board feels pretty light and airy, as with the rest of the ship.  This is down to the use of light woods and other textures throughout.

Standard and French Balcony Cabins

Starting the line-up of cabins is the Standard Cabin at 12m².  This features two large portholes with views right out just above the water.  Standard Cabins feature a fixed double bed and a writing desk.


French Balcony Cabins are the same as Standards but also feature a large floor-to-ceiling French balcony. You can also expect tea and coffee-making facilities, a Smart TV, a fridge, and Molton Brown toiletries.

Superior and Superior French Balcony Cabins

These cabins feature a king-size bed, which can be made into two singles, along with a large dressing table and a lounge chair with a drinks table. They’re 15m² and feature either portholes or floor-to-ceiling glass doors with great views over the river.

I stayed in one of the French Balcony cabins on board and they are a really nice space to watch the world go by in.  A nice touch is that unlike on most other ships, natural light enters the bathroom due to privacy glass that spans the room.  You can also expect tea and coffee-making facilities, a Smart TV, a fridge, and Molton Brown toiletries.  The room features a number of EU power sockets, but no USB ports.

French Balcony Suite Cabin

The top tier of cabin on board are the French Balcony Suites.  They are 24m², they’re a lot bigger than our other cabins, giving you extra space for a sofa, a coffee table, a fridge, a dressing area, and a much larger bathroom with a rainfall shower.

You also get a desk and a king-size bed, which can be converted into two singles. What’s more, you can look forward to plush perks, like an amenities kit packed with Molton Brown toiletries to take home, and a bathrobe and slippers. There’s also a Smart TV and USB ports. A Continental breakfast in bed each morning is part of the package, too.

Single Cabins

Something TUI has really tried to push is single cabins, and you can find a number on board.  These are the same size as Standard Cabins, but instead of a double bed, you get a single, as well as a desk and lounge chair. On top of this, you can also opt for Single French Balcony Cabins.
