Review of ms Elbe Princesse II

French river cruise line CroisiEurope launched in 2018 the Elbe Princesse 2 cruise ship as company's 3rd paddlewheel-powered riverboat. Work on the 90-guest vessel started with the steel-cutting ceremony held in Saint-Nazaire (STX France) on December 8, 2016, following a 4-month design phase.

The new boat was commissioned to increase line's capacity between Berlin and Prague on Elbe and Vltava rivers following the introduction of the paddlewheel ships Loire Princesse in 2015 and Elbe Princesse in 2016. Each has a shallow hull draft specially designed to the navigational limitations of the rivers. The riverboat is powered by 2 stern paddlewheels.
