Mein Schiff

This ship, that already should have visited Antwerp in May (cancelled due to storm), finally docked in Antwerp, but not at the usual quay. In the morning the ship entered the port of Antwerp via the Berendrechtsluis to berth at the Leopolddok. The draft of Mein Schiff would have been too high to dock at the cruise terminal at the Scheldt Quays. The ship has a length of 263 metres and is the longest cruise ship that ever docked in Antwerp. The ship can accommodate 1700 passengers. This ship was berthed at the Leopolddok in Antwerp on 7 September 2010.
