Cruise ship MSC Grandiosa in Kiel on May 7th, 2022: For the first time this year, the 332 meter long MSC Grandiosa of the shipping company MSC Cruises has moored in the port of Kiel at the Ostuferhafen.
On Saturday morning, the 332 meter long cruise ship MSC Grandiosa passed the Kiel Fjord, turned in the Fjord and then moored at its berth at the Ostuferhafen. Unfortunately, at 6 a.m. on May 7th, it was very cloudy and hazy when the MSC Grandiosa of the shipping company MSC Cruises moored in Kiel. From the Kiellinie Kiel one could not even see Laboe on the east bank of the fjord or the Friedrichsort lighthouse due to the weather.
When MSC cruise ships call at the port of Kiel, they usually tie up at the cruise terminal at Ostuferhafen. Shortly after 7 p.m. it was time to cast off for the MSC Grandiosa and the ship left the port of Kiel towards the Baltic Sea and Denmark’s capital Copenhagen.
