Asia Expedition 2022/2023

Thank you Bremerhaven Maritime Days

From 17-21 August, we visited Bremerhaven Maritime Days. Together with more than 80 other ships and more than 350,000 visitors we had fabulous days in Germany and wish to thank the Maritime Tage Bremerhaven organisation for inviting us!

In the morning on the 17th of August, the Götheborg arrived in Bremerhaven. First, the ship had to go through a lock, before entering through the extremely narrow bridge passage into the harbour. After that another tricky maneuver awaited in the tight space in the harbour and with ships all around. With only centimeters to spare, both the passage at the bridge and the turn in the harbour went smooth, and Götheborg arrived at her mooring place. 

Just after arrival, the sky opened up in the biggest downpour. A few crew members took the chance for a quick shower in the rain out on the deck, before it eased off. The rest of the week was beautiful, sunny and warm. 

As part of the Maritime Days, Götheborg was open to visitors every day, and on the busiest day we had 2,700 visitors passing through the ship in just that day. Thank you everyone who came on board!

Just as many people came to visit the Götheborg, our crew also took the chance to visit the other beautiful and interesting ships that participated in the festivities. Bremerhaven Maritime Days also featured a street food festival, and music was playing on three stages in the area. All in all: A lot to do and see, and a great meeting place for the sailing community as well as the many people who came to see the visiting ships!

Thank you Maritime Tage Bremerhaven 2022 for inviting us and we hope to see you again!

Götheborg will change its route to deliver an elephant to the Prince of Monaco

30 September 2022

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.

A short visit to Monaco

29 September 2022

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!

Adiós Málaga!

20 September 2022

Tuesday 20 September we sailed out of Málaga, after almost a full week in the harbor in the city center. The days here has been amazing with lots of interested journalists and visitors on board. Next stop is Nice, France!
