MS VIVA Gloria Review

Review of MS VIVA Gloria

The 2005-built (as Swiss Gloria) cruise ship VIVA Gloria was christened in Cologne/Koln in March 2005 by the German actress Annette Frier. The 150-passenger riverboat is owned by Scylla AG (via Scylla Cruises) and operated under charter by the German cruisetour company Phoenix Reisen (under the name "Swiss Gloria").

Under the name "VIVA Gloria", the ship is also chartered to the Scylla-owned subsidiary and new travel brand VIVA Cruises (fleet).
