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 Asara is the luxurious newly built river boat from Phoenix Reisen from 2017. The ship offers a tasteful and high-quality ambience in a luxurious style. Let yourself be spoiled by culinary highlights in the spacious restaurant. Spacious lounges and the sundeck with a small pool make the relaxed cruise experience perfect. The ship can accommodate 190 passengers on 135 m and 4 passenger decks aboard the MS Asara.
