Hamburg Cruise DaysLast weekend, the port of Hamburg located in Germany was celebrated by Hamburg Cruise Days 2017 for embracing an overwhelming 500,000 tourists or so, in total.

 

Cruise vessels including AIDAprima, EUROPA, EUROPA 2, MSC Preziosa, Norwegian Jade, etc. are all escorted by barges, sailing vessels, other passenger vessels and grand backdrop of fireworks.

 

Last year witnessed a prosperous cruise season.

 

This was owing to the American cruise brands Holland America Line, Crystal Cruises, Residences at Sea, Princess Cruises, each of them calling once with just a single chip. One of the cruise ships of Oceania Cruises also arrived here twice.

 

And, the entire fleet of Cunard made an aggregate of 10 visits.

 

The year 2017 is slated to be even better thanks to Silversea Cruises, Royal Caribbean International, Norwegian Cruise Line, Azamara Club Cruises and so on. Royal Caribbean and Azamara have just one ship and one call, each scheduled while Silversea has two cruise ships and two visits on its schedule.

 

Meanwhile, Norwegian Cruise Line has a vessel set to arrive seven times.

 

In addition, returning brands Oceania, Princess and Holland America would be arriving twice while Cunard is bringing back two ships across seven visits.

 

Ever since 2016, these numbers portrayed an increase from 1,866 passengers ending their cruise and disembarking to 3,559. The regular sailings of Norwegian Cruise Line to and from Hamburg since June 2017are majorly attributed. And, though Crystal Cruises is not scheduled this year, the luxury line is eager enough to take part in Cruise Days 2020.

 

Currently, Hamburg is an ideal locale to cruise to Great Britain, Norway and Northern European.
