UNIQUE PADDLEWHEEL CRUISE FOR CROISIEUROPE IN 2022
By River Cruising Expert John Newton
A unique paddlewheel ship will be one of the highlights of a new cruise next year showcasing Prague, Dresden and the castles of Bohemia along the Elbe and Vltava rivers, writes John Newton.
It’s being introduced by CroisiEurope – Europe’s largest river cruise operator – with the round trip from Prague operating from March to November 2022.
The seven-day cruise will also feature calls in Stechovice, Slapy and Melnik.
Among the cruise destinations are the castles of Bohemia – Konopiste Castle, a former hunting lodge of the Habsburgs, and the Renaissance-style Nelahozeves Castle with its private art collection; a visit to the birthplace of famous Czech composer, Antonin Dvorak, to learn more about his life and works, including the New World Symphony; and a full day in Dresden – also known as the Florence of the Elbe.
The 77-passenger ship – MS Elbe Princesse 11 – uses modern paddlewheel technology and features a sleek contemporary design with open spaces and large picture windows.

* For the past year, CroisiEurope has been successfully working to achieve the ‘Safeguard’ certification of its ships. The Safeguard Certification Label ensures the proper application of preventive sanitary measures, which have been subject to a rigorous auditing process and confirm that crew members have been thoroughly trained to implement them. These measures will be further strengthened this year with guests needing to provide proof of vaccination or a negative PCR or rapid antigen test prior to embarkation.
