Corona-protection measures on our MS Primadonna

All details are listed in our extended hygiene guide, which is based on legal and local requirements and guidelines.
Important advance information about the current COVID19 protection measures on board will be sent to you with your travel documents.

Aerosols/fresh air supply

On the entire ship - also in all cabins including the crew - the air conditioning and air supply works exclusively with fresh air; this means that no air is filtered or exchanged - but only fresh air is supplied from outside. The distribution of aerosols is therefore excluded.

Perfected hygiene precautions

All cabins are completely disinfected after each trip, including a specially purchased suction device for the mattresses as well as room disinfection using the Saniswiss Sanitizer steaming device. Room disinfection is the final cleaning step in each cabin and ensures comprehensive disinfection of the entire cabin.  

Disinfection of all public areas including WCs, door buckles, railings and tables takes place several times a day.
Our guests will find disinfection and hygiene dispensers at all key points - at the entrances to the ship, the bar and the restaurant.  All drink menus are coated with a special varnish against bacteria and viruses.
The disinfection of the bicycle handles on bicycle cruises is carried out daily, as is the disinfection of the suitcase handles.
Cabins and boarding cards are disinfected regularly.
The crew cabins are also disinfected after the start of each cruise in the same way as the customer cabins.
Masks (MNS and FFP2) are also available in the on-board shop at cost price.

Staff vaccinated

The crew is already vaccinated. The mandatory of wearing a mouth-nose protection or an FFP2 mask when in contact with guests, if required by the authorities. The employees were trained in the COVID19 prevention and hygiene measures at the beginning of the season.

All have completed a medical examination and, if employed, can go on board. Staff are also tested for COVID19 twice a week with a rapid antigen test. Two specially trained Covid-19 medical officers from our crew monitor compliance with the measures on board during daily operations.


Breakfast is served buffet style. We recommend disinfecting your hands when entering the buffet area.
