MS Alemannia wiki

  • Between November 1989 and February 1990, the boat received a drydock refurbishment at Shipyard De Biesbosch (Dordrecht Holland). The existing Grill Room and surrounding Veranda were removed to enlarge the Dining Room Restaurant. The ship also received new Bar and the number of passenger cabins was reduced from 108 to 94.
  • Ship's machinery includes four 12-cylinder diesel engines (model Deutz FM716 378, total poer 1,5 MW), two rudder propellers (Voith-Schneider), bow thruster (power output 190 kW). The wheelhouse, all railings and awnings are retractable to allow passing under low bridges.
