Phoenix Reisen's ship Amera is currently sailing on a 38-day Transatlantic voyage to Greenland and Canada. The vessel was forced to change her route on the first leg of the trip from Bremerhaven (Germany) to Montreal (Quebec Canada)

From September 23-25, MS Amera was sheltered by Port St Johns NL (Newfoundland-Labrador Canada) to avoid Hurricane Fiona as well as to ensure the safety of passengers and crew. The first Canadian destinations had to be canceled in the course of the journey. St Anthony / Corner Brook (Newfoundland) and Sept-Iles (Quebec) cannot be called at.

MS Amera left the unscheduled St Johns port Sunday morning and headed to Saguenay. where she is expected to arrive on September 28 instead of 27. On the evening of September 28, the boat is scheduled to leave Saguenay and return to her planned route.

The voyage ends on October 20 in Bremerhaven.
