As part of an intimate ceremony, on June 30, Phoenix Reisen officially christened a new riverboat in Bonn Germany. Like almost all fleetmates, Phoenix Reisen's newest ship's name begins with the letter A. MS Andrea's shipowner is the Dutch company Rijfers River Cruises, while Phoenix Reisen is the boat charterer.
MS Andrea has LOA length 135 m, 96 passenger staterooms (all sized 17 m2, most are French Balcony), 2 Restaurants, Library (reading corner with bookcase), fore-located Panorama Bar Lounge, wellness facilities (Sauna, Steam Room, Spa massage room), laundry service, spacious Sundeck (top-deck with an outdoor swimming pool, shuffleboard, deckchairs, shaded seating).
Appropriately, the boat's godmother is the shipowner's wife Andrea Lejckova-Rijfers. The ship also received blessings from Pastor Raimund Blanke. MS Andrea cruises on 7-day Rhine and Moselle itineraries (season 2020) and also on Danube River (scheduled for 2021).
