Berth place - Scheldt Quays
Every year hundreds of river cruise ships visit Antwerp. Days with eight or more river cruise ships docked at the same time are no rarity in the city. Because the river cruise ships visit Antwerp in such large numbers it is not possible to let them all dock in one single place. Therefore the ships are spread out over three berth places in the city:      - the Scheldt Quays      - the Willemdok      - the Kattendijkdok Below you can find information about all three berth places.
The river cruise ships that dock at the Scheldt Quays can do so at Quay 18 & 19, just behind the Zuiderterras, at the bus parking place. Up to 6 river cruise ships can berth there at the same time in two blocks of three vessels. Scheldt Quay 18 & 19 has a central location and the city centre can easily be reached on foot.

On busy days several cruise ships will be docked alongside each other. The berth place is close to some interesting museums.  Both the Red Star Line Museum and the MAS (Museum Aan de Stroom) are only 300 metres away from the cruise quay.
