The Isle of Wight’s up-and-coming cruise destination port Cowes Harbour welcome the maiden call of cruise ship HANSEATIC Nature on 27 May 2019.

Cowes Harbour Commission held a plaque exchange on board Hapag-Lloyd Cruises’ new ship HANSEATIC Nature to welcome the ship to Cowes.

Attending the plaque presentation were HANSEATIC Nature’s Staff Captain Christoph Kunz, Cowes Harbour Master Capt Stuart McIntosh, Cowes Mayor Lora Peacey Wilcox, and Chairman of Visit Isle of Wight Ian Griffiths.

Cowes Harbour Commission is working proactively with the Island’s tourism organisation ‘Visit Isle of Wight’ and other local stakeholders to promote Cowes as a unique destination port of call, encouraged by the rising demand in the cruise ship market, including growth in the Northern European luxury cruise market.
