Even before the christening, the new “Mein Schiff 1” visited the port of Kiel on April 27th as part of a “pre-cruise” after leaving the shipyard. To welcome the youngest fleet member the traditional plaque & key ceremony took place on board.
MS Astoria, operated by Cruise & Maritime Voyages (CMV), visited the Hanseatic city on April 14th as the first of 12 cruise ships. Like all other calls of cruise ships, this maiden call was handled by our Sartori & Berger port agents in Rostock.
