Cruise Ship Information

MS Albatros is a cruise ship, operated by the Germany-based travel agency Phoenix Reisen. She was built in 1973 by Wärtsilä Helsinki New Shipyard, Finland for Royal Viking Line as Royal Viking Sea, and has also sailed under the names Royal Odyssey, Norwegian Star, and Crown. She is the second Albatros.

Atmosphere on board

The "new" MS Albatros was introduced by Phoenix Reisen in 2004 as a successor for the old TS Albatros. In Germany this classic vessel became even more popular after being the star in the TV series "Verrrückt nach Meer" (Crazy for the Sea). The Albatros stands in the tradition of classical cruise liners. For her mainly German guests she provides not only calmness, relaxation and comfort, but also offers sporting activities and entertainment programmes. With 28,000 tons and room for up to 830 guests the MS Albatros is one of the smaller cruise ships of our time. The large variety of uncommon routings takes the guests to highly interesting places.

Our recommendation

Depending on the position of the vessel (time zone) or by temporary satellite reception problems (Depending on the route), the position data updates may be delayed. We are trying to portray the daily programs and menus daily. Should this not be here again to find, so we ask for your understanding that the processing still takes some time.
