Phoenix Reisen's Albatros makes maiden call at Bandaneira, Indonesia
Phoenix Reisen's Albatros opened a new destination for non-expedition cruise ships in Indonesia calling Bandaneira last week, February 26.

Bandaneira is the marquee destination of the Spice Islands - the Banda Islands were at the centre of the trade of nutmeg and mace from late 15th century until the mid-19th century.

After calling Bandaneira the vessel stopped in Ambon, offering a 576mtr long berth and a depth of 10mtr.

Hellen de Lima, the local ground handler for Phoenix, and also representative of Andhika GAC in Maluku was instrumental in coordinating the maiden call playing a lead role in the construction of the tendering facilities and shoreside logisitic planning with the local community.
