We arrived in Hamburg by bus from Berlin and took a taxi to the cruise port. We didn’t take any time for sightseeing as we are familiar with the city and had spent a few days here earlier this year. If someone has never been to Hamburg I would strongly recommend spending a day or at least a few hours to get to know the city before heading to the ship. From downtown to Speicherstadt, St. Pauli and the beautiful harbor and waterways – Hamburg has lots to offer and it would be a shame to only pass through on your way to the cruise ship.
The Hamburg cruise terminals are centrally located and easy to get to. Check in and boarding were stemless and before we knew it we were on our way
