Columbus Cruise Center Bremerhaven: Record Season 2018 – Preview 2019
We were successful in sending off a total of 230,000 cruise passengers safely with all their luggage. On 111 occasions, vessels were moored, provisions loaded, suitcases unloaded and sorted for collection at our baggage reclaim in the terminal.
Most voyages left from Bremerhaven for destinations in the Baltic, Great Britain or Norway.
Besides all the familiar vessels, we were also happy to welcome some new faces to the Columbus Quay this year: Costa Mediterranea, Seabourn Ovation, Mein Schiff 1, Azamara Journey and Marella Discovery.
The Columbus Cruise Center Bremerhaven, the gateway for cruise passengers, will open its doors once again in 2019. Under our motto of “easy arrival, great departure” we are expecting about 260.000 passengers. As in previous years, we are looking forward to another positive development.
About 120 cruise vessels have already announced their arrivals. The season will start on 4.5.2019. We are expecting various multiple berthings and we are already excited about our next meeting with the Phoenix Tours fleet. We are particularly looking forward to welcoming our new customer AIDA Cruises, who will entrust their cruise vessel AIDAcara to us on a total of four occasions.
The schedule for 2019 will be published in December.
