1,000,000th cruise guest in 2023

November 12, 2023 | Today, the 1,000,000th Hamburg cruise guest in 2023 was counted when the MSC Euribia docked at the Steinwerder terminal – a milestone in Hamburg’s cruise history! The lucky winner and his family were on their way to travel on the new MSC ship and were welcomed in the presence of our First Mayor, Dr. Peter Tschentscher, the management of the Hamburg Port Authority and Cruise Gate Hamburg GmbH as well as other guests. And for this special passenger and his family: after the cruise from/to Hamburg, the Hamburg weekend can come in 2024! We have presented a voucher package with hotel accommodation, tickets for tourist highlights and restaurant vouchers.

We wish you a lot of fun and thank our companies and partners for their great support
