Review of MS River Allegro
MS River Allegro entered service for Grand Circle Cruise Line in 2011. This charming 90-passenger river ship was built in 1991 as Diehlmann's Dresden and boasts four decks and 70 cabins (150 sq.feet or larger), all of which outside, with 2 twin beds, safe, private bath with shower, hair dryer, individual air-conditioned controls, direct-dial telephone and color TV, including CNN and movies.
The 361-feet river boat River Allegro is one of the largest in Grand Circle Cruise Line’s deluxe fleet. It has a lounge with its own bar, forward panoramic salon and reception hall with dining room (single open seating) and library. Complimentary wireless Internet access is provided in the reception area, library, bar, and lounge. The sauna on ship's 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.
