Celebrating its 40th anniversary in 2016, French river cruise company CroisiEurope announced the addition of seven new ships by 2017. Three cruise ships will be launched in Europe in 2016, followed by the launch of four new ships in 2017.

In Spring 2016, CroisiEurope launches MS Elbe Princesse – an innovative cruise ship with 40 cabins and a guest capacity of 80, designed with paddle wheel technology allowing it to sail year round in the lowest waters of Elbe, from Berline to Prague.
