MS Hamburg - Ready for America's Great Lakes

MS Hamburg - Ready for America's Great Lakes

May 16, 2018 - MS HAMBURG, “The cruise ship for the discerning”, thanks to its small dimensions, heads for those destinations that remain closed to large ships. The places of longing in the world are among the ship's special destinations. Visits to the Great Lakes of North America are extremely rare.

MS Hamburg travels the Amazon and cruises in arctic regions. The 144-meter cruise ship also calls at Greenland and Cuba. This autumn and next autumn, it will make two trips to different destinations in the Great Lakes of North America in September and October.

The 15 narrow lock systems of the Great Lakes are considered difficult to pass by larger ships. What larger ships are not allowed to do, however, is possible with the 21,50 meter wide MS Hamburg. Thanks to the retractable navigation bridge, the locks can be passed through. According to the shipping company, there is generally only a few centimeters of space between the ship's wall and the lock wall. Oliver Steuber, Managing Director of the shipping company: "With this centimeter-precise passage through the locks for cruises, we are opening up a completely new destination area, and are absolute pioneers for German group tourism in some ports."

Overall, the cruise to the Great Lakes is a varied combination of culture, nature and city break. Oliver Steuber again: "The natural event Indian Summer, the metropolises of Chicago, Toronto, Detroit and Cleveland and, last but not least, exciting excursions to the Harley Davidson or Henry Ford Museum ensure an absolutely varied program."

In time for the Indian Summer, the MS Hamburg will sail twice on the world's largest inland waterway this autumn and next.
