The Hamburg Cruise Days are the most spectacular cruise festival in the world. So, it is hardly surprising that 135.000 maritime enthusiasts made the pilgrimage to Hamburg's port area to experience this thrilling and moving event staged over land and water.
After a forced break due to the pandemic, a "special edition" of the internationally acclaimed maritime event took place last weekend at the Northern German port town of Hamburg. Highlights were the light-up of the atmospheric „Blue Port Hamburg“ light installation under participation of the Cunard cruise Liner „Queen Mary 2“ on Friday and a spectacular evening show with the cruise ships AIDAprima and MSC Magnifica on Saturday evening. Light, drones and music turned the port into a catwalk for an atmospheric rendezvous of both ships in front of the impressive backdrop of the blue illuminated “Blue Port Hamburg”. The so called "Pas de deux on blue" was a goose bumps production that is only possible in Hamburg and made a statement for the fascination of cruise, the longing for travel and a peaceful togetherness.
