Since the "MS Artania" sails for Phoenix Reisen she went through a series of modernizations. Today it is safe to say that - though built in 1984 - she is still a modern and beautiful ship. A unique feature for a ship of this size is the fact that all staterooms are exterior cabins - inside staterooms do not exist.
With a length of 231 meters she accommodates up to 1.200 passengers. This means a lot of space per guest. In 1984 the vessel was christened "Royal Princess" by Lady Diana. Since 2011 she is named "Artania" and is Phoenix Cruises' largest ship to date.
German is the only official language used on this ship. Therefore most of the guests are from the German speaking countries. Even though there is usually personnel on board who speaks English. However no services in English (menus, tours, etc.) are provided. It is therefore strongly recommended to speak a bit of German when travelling on the MS Artania.
