Ready for Christmas

At the beginning of this week, our stevedoring department unloaded a very special freight from board of “Color Carrier”: A big Christmas tree, a gift from the city of Drammen for the Kiel city center.
At the weekend, it was the last call of Ocean Vantage to the port of Kiel for the time being. After a successful campaign, the three-month project in the Baltic Sea is in the final stage.
As part of a new project, Ocean Vantage has become a regular guest in Kiel. Currently the geotechnical drilling vessel takes samples in the Baltic Sea, which will be sent in for examination.
While the Europa anchored about 1,500 meters off Sylt last week its guests used tender boats to land and explore the island. They were actively supported by a team of Sartori & Berger Kiel, which also was in charge of the clearing. More pictures…

Happy Rover in Hamburg

The daily routine of our port agents principally includes the usual ship clearance. For the port call of Happy Rover on Wednesday, the Hamburg team of Sartori & Berger took over all tasks around the clearing of the cargo carrier. We wish safe journeys all the time and a good trip to Minnesota!
For works in the port of Hamburg the Matador 3 of Bonn & Mees was towed by Jan Leenheer to Burchardkai. On July 2nd and 3rd the floating crane dismantled the outriggers of 3 gantry cranes.
Last Saturday we welcomed the MSC Meraviglia for the first time in Kiel harbor. With 171,598 GT and up to 5300 passengers, it is the largest cruise ship ever to have sailed in Kiel harbor.
On the “Internationale Tourismus-Börse” (an international tourism fair) in Berlin, Hamburg Cruise Net invited to a panel discussion. Timo Kaden participated as guest on the topic career opportunities in the cruise.
On February 7, 2019 Color Line invited to the New Year’s reception in Kiel. An important topic was the new cargo ship “Color Carrier” which will be serving the Oslo-Kiel route three times per week.  
On Friday at 2.30 p.m.,  Color Line’s new cargo ship called the port of Kiel for the first time. Up to 36,000 units can be transported by Color Carrier annually. The cargo ship will moor in Kiel three times a week in the future.

Year after year

Traditionally the cruise season of Sartori & Berger in Hamburg starts with a call of Cunard. This year the first ship we welcomed was Queen Victoria. In addition to two further port calls we also expect Queen Mary 2 five times in the Hanseatic city. Our colleagues of the agency and stevedore department are looking forward to the next visit in April and wish a safe journey!
At the beginning of September we said “¡Adiós! Pullmantur Zenith” for the last time for now. During the last three years Sartori & Berger provided the 80,000, mostly Spanish speaking cruise passengers with an all-inclusive package.
