M/S River Allegro

The M/S River Allegro was ranked #3 in Condé Nast Traveler’s “Top 40 River Cruise Ships in the World” 2014 Readers’ Poll.

The M/S River Allegro—our newest river ship—officially joined the Grand Circle Cruise Line fleet in 2011. We’ve renovated this vessel with an emphasis on comfort, reducing the number of berths from 108 to 90; expanding the bar and lounge area; redecorating the dining room; and more. Because we own and operate the M/S River Allegro exclusively for Grand Circle Cruise Line travelers, we can control the quality of your onboard experience and ensure that you’re well taken care of as you cruise along the Elbe River. This river ship provides an intimate cruising experience for just two groups of no more than 45 travelers, each with its own expert resident Program Director.
