COLUMBIA Cruise Services celebrating the Hamburg Cruise Days 2017

10 cruise vessels in four days. 1,575 vessel meters overall. 502,946 registered gross tons. Blue Port Hamburg. Fireworks. Over 300,000 spectators. One parade. Germany’s most significant cruise destination Hamburg demonstrates its beauty once again.

COLUMBIA Cruise Services (CCS) celebrated this event together with 80 guests at the first CCS ROOFTOP PARTY, dedicated to the farewell parade of the Hamburg Cruise Days 2017. Olaf Groeger, Managing Director of CCS, took this opportunity to personally thank our clients for their trust in CCS, choosing us as their Manager. This has only been possible, says Groeger, due to the dedicated work of each and every employee since the establishment of CCS. Last but not least he disclosed that the CCS fleet will further increase in 2018 by minimum three vessels!

By sunset the farewell parade as the highlight of the Hamburg Cruise Days commenced and the vessels, each one accompanied by its own fireworks, showed their beauty to the parade visitors on the river Elbe. Two vessels sailing under Technical Management of CCS, the EUROPA and EUROPA 2, enriched the parade.

Besides savoring the great view on the Hamburg Cruise Days event, representatives of our clients, key supplier and industry experts enjoyed their fruitful exchange and one or the other drink.
