Passage on cargo ships between Europe and Canada has been difficult to obtain in recent years, but at least one vessel is now accepting passengers between Genoa and Montreal. The 45,625dwt container ship Hanjin Palermo, managed by Germany’s NSB Niederelbe Schiffahrts GmbH, is accommodating up to eight passengers in an Owner’s cabin, two double cabins and two single cabins.
The ship is currently on a rotation schedule that includes calls at Genoa, Cagliari, Fos-sur-Mer, Valencia, Algeciras, Lisbon and Montreal. Passenger fares are €80 per day in the singles, €90 per person per day in the doubles and €95 per person per day for the Owner’s cabin. The 1994-built ship, which accommodates 2,500TEU, has an indoor pool, fitness room, a small lounge and video/TV room.
