Port of Kiel welcomes “Saga Sapphire” maiden visit
The first of four visits to Kiel this season by the British shipping company Saga Cruises began early Thursday with the arrival on the Kiel Fiord of the “Saga Sapphire” with 640 English-speaking passengers on board. The flagship of the Saga fleet was met by a local tug near the Friedrichsort Beacon and within sight of the entrance to the Kiel Canal. To the accompaniment of a water fountain display by the tug, the ship was escorted to her berth at the Ostseekai Cruise Shipping Terminal. During the course of a reception later on the ship, port head Dr Dirk Claus presented Captain Julian Burgess with the traditional commemorative plaque awarded by the Schleswig-Holstein federal state capital Kiel to ships visiting the port for the first time. Dirk Claus, who is the Managing Director of the PORT OF KIEL (SEEHAFEN KIEL GmbH & Co. KG) said: “Saga Cruises is one of those shipping companies which have discovered Kiel for themselves as a gateway for land excursions in north Germany and which, with increasing regularity, now include the port in their route planning. We are delighted to enjoy such a good partnership with Saga Cruises and we would like to further expand it in future.”
