The machine has 1,630 PS driving power in two independent main machines, with two propellers and one bow thruster. This is responsible for a gently cruising experience. 25 crew members speak German and Dutch. Payable on board is in Euro. You find 58 outside cabins on three decks with a size of 9.5 m² equipped with shower/toilet, panorama window (openable), individual air-conditioning, and 2 separate ground level beds (twins), satellite TV, telephone and safe.

In the tasteful welcome area you find the reception, the restaurant with a wonderful flair for all 116 passengers and the panorama bar with live music in the evening. There is an elevator which leads to the main and upper decks and a wheelchair lift to the sun deck. The sun deck welcomes you for relaxing hours in the sun beds and a glassed area behind the wheelhouse.
