The sailing legs released today are Jersey to Rotterdam, Rotterdam to Hamburg, and Hamburg to Gothenburg. The first three sailing legs for 2023 are already fully booked (please note that it is still possible to apply for a fully booked leg to be put on a waiting list in case of cancellations).   

“ The interest in sailing with us this year has been overwhelming. We had nearly four hundred applicants for the first sailing leg that we released, and are of course hoping for a similar interest in the sailing legs opened up today. The ship created great attention when sailing in Europe last year, resulting in a large number of applicants from all across Europe this year”, said Kristoffer Bennis, Expedition Director at Götheborg of Sweden. 

The ship, currently moored in Barcelona, will depart from Barcelona 20 March 2023, and sail to Sète, Gibraltar, Jersey, Rotterdam and Hamburg before arriving at its home port Gothenburg, Sweden. All five ports stops that the ship will make on its way to Gothenburg, are in ports that the Götheborg will visit for the very first time. Ticket sales to visit the ship in port will also be opened up shortly. 

In Gothenburg, the ship will play an important role in the city of Gothenburg’s 400-year jubilee at the beginning of June. The ship will stay open to visitors in Gothenburg during summer 2023.
