Review of MS Dnieper Princess
MS Dnieper Princess ("Printsesa Dnipra") is a 4-deck Russian river cruise ship sailing along Dnieper River from Kiev to the Black Sea. The vessel is owned and operated by the Russian shipping company "Imperial River Cruises". Vladimir Ilyich class is a class of 4-deck Russian river passenger ships, manufactured in Germany between 1974–1983. The class is named after the first vessel "Vladimir Ilyich".
The ship's interior design is done in classical style. Great attention was paid to arranging of onboard dining areas that came out cozy and spacious. Decorations and design of the public areas add to hospitable and friendly atmosphere and encourage guests to socialize and enjoy their stay.
Dnieper Princess is able to accommodate a maximum of 320 passengers. The cabins are quite small (average 10 m2 /110 ft2), but are functional and feature large picture windows that open (except for the Low Deck cabins that have portholes). Cabin amenities consist of two pull man style berths, radio, air conditioning and private bathrooms with sink and shower.
There are two restaurants on the ship, both serving meals in one seating. The two cozy bars and a concert hall are located on the Sun Deck. Meals include Ukrainian and international choices. Ship's crew is young and friendly. While not on the level of western style vessels or services, Dnieper Princess provides an excellent means of exploring exciting tourist destination. The ship is non-smoking throughout, except the outdoor areas.
