Columbus Cruise Centre Bremerhaven (CCCB) in Germany is enjoying a lively autumn, the terminal operator said in a statement.
“The 2017 cruise season is drawing to a close. This year's highlight was the arrival of four vessels on 7 September, with ms Amadea, ms Albatros ms Artania and ms Costa Magica all berthed at the Columbus Quay at the same time. The Amadea was the first to arrive at 06.45, followed by ms Costa Magica at 07.30. ms Albatros and ms Artania completed the quartet at 08.15 and 09.00,” CCCB said.
Of a total of almost 8,000 passengers, 2,800 were transit passengers from ms Costa Magica who had booked excursions to Bremen and Bremerhaven, while the remaining 5,400 either embarked on their cruise or ended it in Bremerhaven.
As well as several single arrivals before October, CCCB is also expecting three vessels on one day. “On 23 September, ms Amadea of the Bonn-based tour operator Phoenix Reisen, ms Astor of Transocean Kreuzfahrten as well as the American luxury cruise vessel ms Seven Seas Navigator of the Regent Seven Seas Cruises line will all call at Bremerhaven,” the terminal operator said.
