Phoenix Reisen christened the newest addition to its fleet, Amera, at a ceremony on the quayside in Bremerhaven, Germany on 16 August 2019.
The 1988-built ship was formerly Prinsendam, which was operated by Holland America Line. The ship was handed over to Phoenix Reisen in July and underwent a €25 million refurbishment.
Amera joins the four other ships in the Phoenix Reisen fleet, Albatros, Amadea, Asuka and Artania, as well as the seasonally charter of Deutchland.
Following the christening, Amera will sail from Bremerhaven to Dover, then on to Antwerp and Amsterdam. The ship will offer cruises to Norway and the Baltic before repositioning to the Mediterranean in October.
