CroisiEurope newbuild leaves STX France yard

CroisiEurope’s latest newbuild, Elbe Princesse, is to arrive in her new homeport in Berlin, Germany after leaving the outfitting dock at the STX France yard in Saint-Nazaire on 10 February.

The two-deck ship, which is currently being transported via a heavy lift vessel, is due to reach Hamburg, Germany on 15 February. From here, she will continue up the Elbe River and Havel Canal to Berlin.

Elbe Princesse is CroisiEurope’s 43rd river vessel and its second paddlewheel riverboat. This design will enable the 95m ship to draw alongside docks in the centre of cities, giving guests easy access to important historical sites.

The vessel is able to accommodate 80 passengers in 40 spacious cabins, which are equipped with wifi, HVAC systems, flat-screen TVs, a radio, minibar, safe and a hairdryer. The vessel also features a panoramic restaurant, a large bar and lounge with a dance floor, and a spacious sun deck with a pool and chaises lounges.

Elbe Princess will be christened in the German capital on 14 April, before embarking on her inaugural cruise on 19 April when she will take guests between Berlin and Prague, Czech Republic on the Elbe and Vltava rivers. She will continue to sail between the two cities year-round, calling at destinations such as Potsdam, Lutherstadt Wittenberg and Dresden in Germany, as well as Litomerice, Czech Republic.
