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.
The ship has 44 double cabins, all outside, with included amenities flat TV, radio, electronic safe box (in the closet), minibar, individually controlled air-conditioning, en-suite bathroom (wash basin, shower, WC, hairdryer). All cabins on Ruby Deck have French Balconies.
The entrance hall with reception and a welcoming lounge with panoramic bar and dance floor are located on the Ruby deck. The large restaurant and the Boutique Shop are situated on Emerald Deck.
