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.
On board of the MS Rhein Prinzessin the classical ambience of a river cruise awaits. Spacious staterooms, some with balcony, tasteful and light-filled living areas and friendly and courteous service leave nothing to be desired. With a length of 110 m and four passenger decks, the ship can accommodate up to 140 passengers. In addition to the panoramic lounge with bar and Captain's Club, you will also find a spa, fitness equipment and a large sundeck on board.

Cruise in one sentence
- we were told that the language was deutsch. Most of the staff were from Holland and Bali, they understood english very well.There was to much food!! We were travelling in the heathwawe and still they served hot bouillon before lunch....
- The sun-cover on the deck was insuficient.In 37grades there was not enough shade. The buillon should have been changed to Cold Water in the heat.
- Very nice interieur. But chairs and sunbeds on the sundeck and Balcony very uncomfortable....
