MS Shevchenko (192 passengers) has become one of our best balcony ships after the thorough renovation that had taken place in 2019. Her upgrade was done mainly in accordance with the renovation project of the MS Excellence Katharina - our best and most modern luxury river cruise ship. The only difference is that the MS Shevchenko is meant for the ‘affordable luxury’ segment; therefore her Boat Deck does not have Suites or Mini Suites. Yet, the two of her ‘balcony decks’ - the Boat Deck and the Upper Deck - are equipped with the Deluxe Cabins that are twin or double. Two Panorama Suites with balcony terrace are located on the Upper Deck. International cuisine and Russian dishes are served. Crew: 93
