#cruiseliners- German cruise operator, Phoenix Reisen have their flagship docked in Dublin Port today, writes Jehan Ashmore.

Passengers from the Amadea are taking in the capital and its various visitor attractionsas as part of an autumn cruise call. Only one more cruiseship is scheduled to visit this season. 

The 28,865 gross tonnage Amadea had made an overnight passage from Liverpool. This led to this morning's arrival with the 1991 Japanese built ship taking a berth within the Irish port's Alexandra Basin.

Phoenix Reisen caters not just for the German cruise market but also selling domestic based river cruises.

As far as cruising operations are concerned, asides Amadea, the fleet are represented by Artania, Albatros and a newer addition Deutschland.

The shipping industry is complex given for example that the cruiseship is operated by the German company, flagged in the Bahamas (member of the Commonwealth) and ship management is provided by Monoco based V-Ships in Monte Carlo.
