MS River Allegro Review

Review of MS River Allegro

The 1991-built (as MS Dresden) cruise ship River Allegro entered service for GCCL-Grand Circle Cruise Line in 2011. The riverboat has max passenger capacity 90 (plus 38 crew/staff). The shipowner is Grand Circle Corporation via its subsidiary company Grand Circle Travel USA (Boston MA-headquartered travel agency).

The vessel (ENI number 04031940) was constructed in Deggendorf Germany), and it was initially named "MS Dresden" (MMSI 211512590) and Germany-flagged. In 2011, its flag state/registry was changed to Malta (MMS 248761000, registered in Valletta). In 2020, the boat's flag state was changed from Malta to the Netherlands (MMSI 244136545) and it is currently registered in Dordrecht.

The boat has 4 decks (3 with cabins) and 70 staterooms (sized 14 m2 / 150 ft2 or larger). All cabins are outside, with double occupancy (2 twin beds), electronic safe box (in the closet), en-suite bathroom (WC-shower, hairdryer), direct-dial phone (intercom), flat TV (satellite reception), individual air-conditioning (thermostat-controlled).

MS River Allegro cruise ship

With length 110 m, River Allegro is among the Grand Circle fleet's largest. The ship has a bar lounge, forward panoramic salon and reception hall with a dining room (single open seating) and library. Complimentary wireless Internet access is provided in the reception area, library, bar, and lounge. The sauna on Sonata Deck is always open for guests, and appointments may be made for massages. The massage room is also on the lower deck. River Allegro's spacious sun deck provides loungers, most of which with umbrellas for shade and it's strictly for relaxing. No fitness classes or equipment are offered on the ship. There is an elevator for cruisers who have problems with steps. Passengers onboard River Allegro are 45+ Europeans, Canadians, and Americans. The small size and the shallow draft of the ship are ideal for the shallower waters of River Elbe, where River Allegro sails - between Berlin and Prague (spring through fall), and between Berlin and Dresden (during winter months).

The real "entertainment" onboard River Allegro is the enrichment, with in-depth insights into local history and lifestyles. Program directors ordinarily live in the regions visited and their daily briefings on the next day's visit (given before dinner) are highly personal.
