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 Gorkiy. 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 Anna Katharina of the Scylla AG shipping company was built in 2019 and sets new standards in the premium class of river boats. Tasteful and high-quality ambience in a luxurious style, spacious staterooms and first-class cuisine on board enable an all-round successful holiday experience. 4 passenger decks can comfortably accommodate up to 180 guests (with double occupancy). The sundeck and the wellness and fitness area invite relaxation and activity on board. Depending on how you want to spend your day, the MS Anna Katharina offers all possibilities.
