Amadea

Cruise ship Amadea in Bergen, Norway; Phoenix Reisen

Japan isn't generally regarded as a major cruise ship manufacturer, but over the past few decades a steady stream of small- and mid-sized vessels have been built. Amadea is one of these.

Launched in 1991 as Asuka for Nippon Yusen Kaisha, she sailed with this Japanese line until 2006, when she was replaced by Asuka II and acquired by the German line Phoenix Reisen, for whom she has sailed as Amadea ever since.

Amadea has a length of 193m, and a gross tonnage of 28,850. She carries up to 624 passengers and a crew of 292.

I passed Amadea on the Bergen-Askøy ferry this afternoon, and took the following photos of her moored at Skolten Syd.
