ms Elbe Princesse

The new (2016) ms Elbe Princesse is 95 metres long and 10 metres wide, with three decks. The ship features 40 spacious outside cabins, and can accommodate up to 80 passengers. Equipped with the latest technology, the craft offers the high levels of comfort with Wi-Fi onboard and in the cabins, individually controlled combined air-conditioning/heating; plasma screen TV, radio, hair dryer, safe, mini bar and bathroom facilities. A splendid restaurant can easily accommodate all passengers for single-service dining. A huge lounge bar with central dance floor is a pleasant area to relax and enjoy the company of other passengers while a large sun deck with chairs is the ideal spot for passengers to enjoy some fresh air. The elegant décor in contemporary colours is in perfect harmony with the warm and convivial atmosphere onboard.  Designed specifically to sail the notoriously shallow Elbe, Elbe Princesse is one of the only ships that can actually cruise all the way from Berlin to Prague without the need to embark and disembark guests and transport them the rest of the way via motorcoach – something many other river cruise lines sailing similar Elbe itineraries have to do.
