Up until now Phoenix Reisen is a privately-owned cruise company. It started in 1974 with river cruises to Prague, Budapest and Istanbul. Later it added voyages with included flights to Mallorca, Gran Canaria, Santo Domingo, Mexico and the United States. In 1988 the team from Bonn chartered the TS Maxim Gorki, the former Grande Dame from Hamburg long-term and started a new chapter by entering the world of sea cruises.
What started with the TS Maxim Gorki developed into a success story, which is continuing. Nowadays the MS Amadea, MS Artania, MS Albatros and the MS Deutschland sail underneath the Phoenix Reisen flag to the most beautiful harbours in the world. During the summer the most popular destination are the Baltic Sea and the North Sea. During the winter season, the cruise ships embark on exotic tours in the South or on a world cruise. There is the right itinerary for everyone.
