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. Language on board of all ships is German.
The German-Brazilian Carlos Probst and his team run the cruise line Amazon Clipper Cruises. The shipping company has several ships and years of experience in expedition and cruise ship travel on the Amazon and Rio Negro. The ship was put into operation in 2005 and has been on the river for Phoenix Reisen for several years. Constructed specifically for use in shallow river waters, it combines the ideal shape of Amazon boats with the convenience of a small cruise ship - ideal for exploring the world's largest river system.
