Review of MS Saxonia

MS Saxonia cruise ship was built in 2001 (christened in Hamburg Germany in July), with sistership Swiss Ruby. The 90-passenger riverboat is owned by Scylla AG (via Scylla Cruises) and currently operated under charter by the German cruise tour company Phoenix Reisen.

The vessel is suitable for navigating almost all of Europe's inland waterways due to its dimensions and shallow draft (1,2 m). The ship also meets all safety requirements to cruise in coastal waters, which is why it is frequently used in northern Germany.
