Cruise & Ferry Itinerary Planning 2022

Hapag-Lloyd Cruises’ Hanseatic Nature has made its maiden call to the port of Santander in Spain. Hanseatic Nature arrived in Santander from Cherbourg, France, with 116 passengers onboard. To commemorate the ship’s first visit to the port, President of Cantabria Miguel Ángel Revilla presented Captain Ulf Sodemann with a plaque and a collection of books about Santander and Cantabria for the library onboard the ship. Hanseatic Nature calls at Santander for first time Celebrity Cruises has revealed its European voyages for 2023, which include more than 45 overnight stays in 11 different European cities on seven of its ships. All three of Celebrity’s new Edge Series ships will be deployed in the continent, along with Celebrity Silhouette, Celebrity Constellation, Celebrity Infinity and Celebrity Reflection. They will offer itineraries ranging from four to 13 nights, with more seven-night sailings available than ever before. Port agents and ground operators were put to the test in 2021. However, what started as a gloomy year turned out to be an incredible adrenaline-fuelled journey through uncharted waters. Mifsud Brothers provided services for two ships that homeported 19 times and called 36 times at the island of Malta and 12 times at the island of Gozo in 2021. For the first time there were also 13 charter flights direct from the USA to Malta and four turnround calls. In addition, six cruise lines carried out over 2,800 crew changes on the island. We are grateful and honoured to have been trusted by our principals in these unprecedented times in our relentless pursuit to restart the cruise industry.
