Albatros

Albatros

MS Albatros is a stylish German cruise ship, operated by the Germany-based travel agency Phoenix Reisen. She has a long cruise pedigree, celebrating her 40th year in service in 2013, and has been refitted to high standards and has a contemporary feel. She boasts two restaurants serving hearty food, six bars (including Harry's Bar and the Casablanca Bar), a pool, spa, gym and casino.

Customers have rated her excellent value for money and praised her entertainment, child-friendliness and service. One passenger has heaped praise on her polite staff and helpful crew, describing in an online review how he was the only Briton aboard when he took a world cruise with his German wife. He wrote: 'The comedy shows had me in fits of laughter. They even put some of the jokes into English for me. I was very impressed that they did this. 'Albatros is notable for her bright turquoise funnel rising above the white ship.
