In 2000, Air France Flight 4590 crashed near Paris. The New York City-bound Concorde charter flight had been carrying passengers for a sixteen-day cruise to South America on board MS Deutschland. Despite the accident, the cruise continued as planned.

During the 2012 Summer Olympics in London, the German Olympic Committee used the MS Deutschland as a hospitality ship.
