Bilbao, Spain (PortSEurope) April 12, 2019 – The Hamburg cruise ship of the German company Phoenix Reisen opens on April 14 the cruise season of the port of Bilbao in which a total of 50 cruise ships and about 70,000 passengers are expected to arrive at the harbour.
With a length of 144 metres and a capacity for 400 passengers, the Hamburg ship will arrive to Bilbao from Ferrol and depart to the French city of Brest.
The arrival of the first cruise takes place days after the celebration, from April 8 to 11, of the Seatrade Miami fair, at which the port authority held meetings with shipowners and professionals from the cruise sector.
The participation of the Bilbao port authority in the fair has “allowed to close an important number of calls for 2020”, a year in which they are expected to reach 60, compared to 50 this year.
