The first cruise ship arrives in Aalborg

The first cruise ship arrives in Aalborg

06-05-2016 12:00:00


On Wednesday the cruise ship Marco Polo, from the shipping company Cruise & Maritime Voyages, ushered in the start of the cruise season at Aalborg. Marco Polo, which seats 800 passengers, was too big to be able to moor at Honnørkajen, where the water depth is 8,5 meters.

Since that was not quite enough, the ship had to moore at the cargo quay, where the 791 passengers and 340 crew members arrived on Wednesday morning.

The season's other 20 cruise ships will dock at Honnørkajen. Another cruise ship arrived at Aalborg on Thursday, namely Viking Star. Although it's longer than Marco Polo, which is only 176 meters long, Viking Star doesn't go quite as deep, so th ship could easily moor at Honnørkajen.
