Stopovers in 2022 and 2023
During the expedition in 2022 and 2023, Götheborg made a total of nineteen stopovers and welcomed 90,000 visitors on board. The ship departed from Gothenburg the 8th of June 2022, and then sailed to the Baltic Sea. After visiting the capitals of the Nordic countries, she turned south to head for the Mediterranean, with a number of stops on the way. For the first time since the voyage to Asia in 2005–2007 the ship entered and sailed in the Mediterranean.
After a winter stopover in Barcelona, the ship headed out again the 20th of March 2023, to sail in Europe in 2023. The 2nd of June 2023, Götheborg arrived to Gothenburg to open the city's 400-year jubilee with gun salute and to participate in the Jubilee Festival. We are now moored at our home quay in Eriksberg, Gothenburg.
