German cruise ship operator Phoenix Reisen has extended ‘Deutschland’s’ charter until at least 2025, during the summer periods.
In addition, the charter contract for the forthcoming summer season remains in place, the company said.
“We are happy that we can continue to offer the ship to our guests and that the future of the favourite dream ship is secured,” Benjamin Krumpen, Phoenix Reisen CEO, commented.
Built at HDW shipyard in Kiel in 1998, the vessel was sold to Delos Cruise in January.
‘Deutschland’ is also chartered to student organisation Semester at Sea during the winter, which will also remain in place.
During winter, she sails under the name ‘World Odyssey’, taking Semester at Sea students on trips worldwide.
