In 2022, Götheborg of Sweden will head out on a new adventure and expedition to Asia during 2022 and 2023. Read our latest news here and scroll down to the bottom of this page to sign up for our newsletter.
On October 27, Götheborg of Sweden arrived to Barcelona and moored at one of the top locations in the city harbour: Port Vell/Rambla de Mar. The first weekend in Barcelona was the official stopover, with full crew, and the ship fully rigged. We want to thank Barcelona for the very warm welcome!

Thank you Malta for great days at the Valletta Cruise Port! It has been a lovely stay with the beautiful backdrop of this historic city. We want to thank everyone for the very warm welcome to Malta and the great interest in the ship. We had amazing days!
Today, at 12:00 am, we arrived to Malta. We are excited to get to be in a country with such a strong sea tradition. We are moored at the Valletta Cruise Port with the beautiful city of Valletta in the background. We are looking forward to our stop here with the backdrop of this historical place.
Our eight spectacular days in Nice and Monaco, that included an amazing interest from the people in Nice (thank you!), great media coverage and the delivery of a life-sized elephant sculpture to H.S.H. Prince Albert II of Monaco. A very unusual sight on sundeck to highlight the important issue of ghost nets and the health of our oceans.
Instead of heading straight from Nice to Valletta as planned, the route has been changed and the ship is now also making a short stopover in Monaco. However, it is not just a regular stopover: It will include the spectacular delivery of a 2.4-meter-high elephant sculpture to H.S.H. Prince Albert II of Monaco.
We have some great news! We will make a short, but sweet visit to Monaco. This means that we will leave Nice on 4 October instead of 6 October. We will be in Monaco 4–6 October and will be open to visitors 5–6 October. Welcome on board!
