Review of MS Swiss Ruby

In April 2002 the 88-passenger MS Swiss Ruby cruise ship was launched in 2002 and christened in April in Rheinfelden (Germany) by godmother HRH Maja Synke (Princess of Hohenzollern). The boat was Scylla fleet's 10th member, with sistership Saxonia. The 90-passenger riverboat is owned by Scylla AG (via Scylla Cruises) and currently operated under charter by the German cruisetour company Phoenix Reisen.
