Review of MS Prinzessin Sisi
MS Prinzessin Sisi cruise ship was launched in 2000 (under the name "MS Viking Star" for Viking Cruises) and currently offers cruise itineraries along the rivers Danube, Rhine and Main. The riverboat was completely renovated and rebuilt in winter 2015. Its current owner is Riseday Holding - Malta-based cruise shipping company, that also owns the ships Prinzessin Isabella and Prinzessin Katharina. Currently, these three luxury riverboats are chartered by Phoenix Reisen - Germany (Bonn)-based cruise travel agency.
The 156-passenger ship has 76 cabins and 4 decks. The 12-15 m2 (130-160 ft2) sized staterooms are equipped with individually controlled air conditioning, safe, satellite TV, hairdryer, telephone, shower and WC. The cabins are comfortable and elegantly furnished. All deluxe accommodations have French balconies.
