On August 1, 2011 the three cruise ships of Phoenix Reisen arrived together in Bremerhaven, Germany for the first time.
The trio operated by Phoenix Reisen will consecutively berth at the terminal in the early morning, while ms Berlin will dock exceptionally at Seebaederkaje. At the cruise terminal, all guests will be welcomed by maritime music and stilt walkers. A musical farewell is organized for Berlin, at Seebaederkaje.
CCCB (Columbus Cruise Center Bremerhaven) and the port await nearly 6000 passengers and plenty of daily visitors on the day. It means 12,000 luggages to be delivered to/from board. The quay will be also full: nearly 450t of provisions have to be loaded on the 3 Phoenix ships, and further 50t to Seebaederkaje for Berlin.
The managing director of CCCB, Veit Huerdler, said they were glad to be able to convince FTI to dock at Seebaederkaje, thus being able to offer the visitors and citizens of the maritime city a ship in the middle of the city.
