Review of MS Edelweiss

MS Edelweiss was built in 2013 and her concept revolutionized river cruising industry. Edelweiss is the first riverboat of a new generation, characterized by the well-known elegant interiors by Scylla. With 90 cabins for up to 180 passengers, the 4-star cruise liner promises a luxurious experience. Ship's impressive atrium welcomes guests onboard. The decor of Edelweiss is characterized by modern design, but nevertheless, the ship is still recognizable as a member of SCYLLA family.

MS Edelweiss Wiki

Vessel's construction (hull and superstructure) was done at the Vahali Shipyard in Belgrade Serbia. The 1923-founded Dutch shipbuilding company (Scheepswerf En Machinefabriek Vahali BV) owns and operates yards in Serbia (Belgrade, and Zasavica) and in Holland (Gendt). Vahali Shipyard Zasavica was officially opened in 2013. Following the construction in Serbia, the cruise ship was towed to Holland for final outfitting at Scheepswerf Vahali (Gendt).
