Amadea's Autumn Arrival to Capital of Attractions

#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.

We've got a favour to ask

More people are reading Afloat.ie than ever thanks to the power of the internet but we're in stormy seas because advertising revenues across the media are falling fast. Unlike many news sites, we haven’t put up a paywall because we want to keep our marine journalism open.

Afloat.ie is Ireland's only full–time marine journalism team and it takes time, money and hard work to produce our content.

So you can see why we need to ask for your help.
