The company Scylla Cruises represents the Basel Switzerland-headquartered passenger shipping company SCYLLA AG. Scylla was established in 1974. Its cruise brand enjoys a large number of repeat customers and constantly expands its fleet.

The Scylla river cruise line started shipping operations with MS Scylla (riverboat) on Rhine River. Curiously enough, the first cruise ship deployed on itineraries transiting Rhine-Main-Danube Canal was a Scylla boat. The same goes with the first ship on Po River in Italy.

On January 15, 2019, was announced that Scylla AG purchased the ocean liner MS Bremen from Hapag-Lloyd Cruises - subsidiary of Hapag-Lloyd AG (German-Chilean shipping company, one of the world's oldest). The vessel will be officially delivered to the new shipowner in May 2021. Bremen ship's sale price was not disclosed. As of 2019, Scylla owns 31 riverboats, most of which are chartered to different European cruisetour companies.
