Albatros serves the German-speaking market. She provides a comfortable, traditional cruise experience in a relatively intimate setting.
The ship is a world traveler, offering primarily longer cruises that take her to places such as Africa, South America, Asia, Australia as well as Europe. Her relatively small size allows the ship to visit ports that larger ships cannot enter.
Originally built for Royal Viking Line, Albatros has sailed for a number of lines including Norwegian Cruise Line. In 2004, she entered the Phoenix Reisen fleet in order to replace the original Albatros, which had developed mechanical problems.
