Ship Overview

A truly astounding ship is MS Gerard Schmitter. Built in 2012, this is a relatively new asset to CroisiEurope’s fleet and it is also quite impressive in what its dimensions are concerned, too: its 3 decks are put together into 110 m length and 11.04 m width, it holds 88 cabins with a hosting capacity of 176 passengers, perfect for a Rhine river cruising experience. What will make your holiday even better, is the bright and airy design of the ship with a few touches of purple, powder pink and white. It will give you an immediate sense of comfort and coziness.

    Dear Mr. Emerton, thank you for taking the time to review your stay. We are glad to read you enjoyed the ship. For this Christmas cruise you chose, only the visit of Strasbourg's Christmas market is planned. If you'd like to visit more Christmas markets this year, we have the Christmas cruise reference BMD_PP. During this 7 days and 6 nights trip, you'd be able to visit the Christmas markets of Berlin, Magdeburg and Meissen. We hope we'll have the pleasure to welcome you again on board one of our ships. Best regards, CroisiEurope Customer Care Department

    Dear Mrs Cook, Thank you for taking the time to share your experience. It is true some members of the crew are Hungarians who speak little English. However our Purser and host/hostess speak English and are available at any time to help you. We indeed offer one meal alternative. However, if you don't like something or follow a special diet, it can be brought to the purser's attention and the Chef will offer an alternative. The servers do their best to quickly bring the food to the table. As it is the case on all of our ships, they change the service’s order so it is not always the same clients that are served first/last. Best regards, CroisiEurope Customer Care Department

    Dear Mr. Davis, Thank you for taking the time to share your experience with us. We are really glad to read you had such a great time on board our ship. We'll make sure to let Lucy know about your lovely review. It is true we can't always let the guests board early on the first day as the crew is still busy getting the ship ready for the cruise (there was probably a disembarkation the same morning). We hope we'll be able to welcome you again soon on board one of our ships. Best regards, CroisiEurope Customer Care Department

    Dear Mr. Carter, Thank you for taking the time to review your experience with us. We are glad to read you overall enjoyed your cruise. It is true we offer one choice of meal.
