“The launching took place on 04 June 1994. Eva-Maria Iltgen, the wife of the then President of the Saxon Parliament, officiated at the ceremonial christening of the ship on June 27, 1994 in Dresden at the pier above the Carola Bridge. Afterwards, the maiden voyage to the “Great Steamboat Tour”/ “Castle Tour” took place. “*.
