About Phoenix Reisen
The German tour operator Phoenix Reisen was founded in 1973. In 1988 they started cruising the oceans with the charter of the ship Maxim Gorki. Starting as a pure ocean shipping company, Phoenix Reisen expanded its range in 1993 to include the popular river cruises. The four well-known ocean liners are now joined by more than 30 river ships as well as a few smaller ships for exceptional destinations. The shipping company is still in family hands and attaches great importance to a friendly and pleasant atmosphere aboard their ships.
The MS Amelia was built in 2012 and set new standards in comfort and spaciousness. The large rooms are flooded with light, stylish, but not overloaded and offer a pleasant atmosphere. The long table times in the restaurants and in the bistro are new, so that sooner or later you can eat according to your habits with free choice of seats. The ship offers space for 216 guests on 3 passenger decks on a total length of 135 m.
