Warnemünde is the sixth most popular cruise port in the Baltic
Warnemünde Cruise Center is to handle 181 cruise calls from 39 ships in 2015.
Located at the Port of Rostock in Germany, the cruise centre also expects to welcome more than half a million embarking, disembarking and transiting cruise passengers.
The 2015 season will open on 5 May with a double port call by Celebrity Cruises’ 319m Celebrity Silhouette, which will carry just under 3,000 passengers, and Princess Cruises’ 330m Regal Princess, which will bring around 3,600 guests. The visit marks the first time both ships have been deployed in the Baltic region.
Several other vessels will make maiden calls this season including Birka Cruises’ Birka Stockholm, Costa Cruises’ Costa Favolosa and Costa Luminosa, Pullmantur Cruises’ Horizon, Louis Cruises’ Louis Aura, Cruise & Maritime Voyages’ Magellan, MSC Cruises’ MSC Sinfonia, Ocean Dream, Royal Caribbean International’s Serenade of the Seas and Viking Cruises’ newbuild Viking Star. Costa, MSC, Princess and other cruise operators will also embark and disembark passengers at the port.
In addition, Rostock-based AIDA Cruises will homeport both AIDAdiva and AIDAmar at Warnemünde this year. In total, the two ships will make 38 departures, while AIDAmar will end the 2015 cruise season on 17 October.
During the 111-day season, the cruise centre will host five ships per day on 5 and 17 July and 2 August, one quadruple port call on 30 August and 12 triple visits. More than 100 port calls will take place on Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays.
