Germany’s travel agency and cruise ship operator Phoenix Reisen has extended a charter for MS Deutschland, a 1998-built cruise vessel.
As informed, the 22,496 gross ton ship will stay in the company’s fleet until at least 2025.
In addition, the charter contract for the upcoming summer season remains in force with this Bonn-based company.
“We are happy that we can continue to offer the ship to our guests and that the future of the favorite dream ship is secured,” Benjamin Krumpen, CEO of Phoenix Reisen, commented.
Built at HDW shipyard in Kiel, the vessel was sold to Delos Cruise in January, Phoenix Reisen said.
MS Deutschland has also been chartered to student organization Semester at Sea during winter. Phoenix Reisen informed that the organization remains the second charterer of the vessel.
During winter, the ship sails under its alternate name World Odyssey, transporting Semester at Sea students. During summer, it works for Phoenix Reisen under the name MS Deutschland.
