A musical genius goes maritime: last night, Iveta Apkalna, head organist of the Elbphilharmonie Hamburg, launched the cruise liner “Mein Schiff 6” on behalf of the spectacular new concert hall. During the ceremony, the fourth new addition to the Hamburg based TUI Cruises’ feel-good fleet was moored just beside the Elbphilharmonie, Hamburg’s new landmark.

CLIA today launched its 2017 Summit at Sea in Hamburg. It will take place between 9 - 12 May 2017 aboard beautiful Queen Elizabeth: 160 cruise professionals embark today from Hamburg Altona Terminal to Southampton.

When it comes to cruise locations, Hamburg is the world's number one destination for maritime entertainment and cruise events. Over the past few days, the north German port city once again confirmed its position when seven cruise liners transformed the River Elbe into one big stage for the cruise world – at last weekend’s HAMBURG PORT ANNIVERSARY festival. And only three days earlier, the cruise liner MSC Preziosa had called at the port of Hamburg for the very first time.

The day everybody has been waiting for has finally come. Yesterday the first sod was turned at the construction site located in the southern section of HafenCity’s Überseequartier [overseas quarter]. The new cruise terminal will be built on an area the size of some 260,000 square metres. It will be integrated into a shopping mall surrounded by office and residential buildings and is expected to be completed in 2021.
