Review of MS Swiss Sapphire
MS Swiss Sapphire joined the fleet of Tauck World Discovery in 2008. Currently, the vessel is operated by Scylla Cruises, representing the Switzerland-headquartered passenger shipping company SCYLLA AG. Swiss Sapphire boasts modern amenities and extras, just like her sister ships Swiss Emerald, Swiss Jewel, ms Esprit and ms Treasures.
All cabins on Swiss Sapphire are outside facing and most feature French balconies. Amenities include flat-screen TVs, L'Occitane toiletries, cushy bathrobes. Wi-Fi is complimentary, available from bow to stern. A light Italian meal, an alternative dining option, is available nightly in ship's Lido Bar with 180-degree retractable glass wall.
The itineraries vary from ones on the Rhine, to sailings along the Main and Danube. MS Swiss Sapphire never leaves Europe and covers many of the steady river routes, like Strasbourg to Prague, or Amsterdam to Brussels, with opportunities to explore idyllic villages, as well as metropolitan cities, with the group or on your own. On some itineraries, passengers can borrow bicycles to ride along the river and meet up with the boat at the next call port. Between tour-packed port days, there are lectures, shore tours, and cocktail parties.
