TUI Cruises’ brand new unit Mein Schiff 2 called at Salerno for the first time.
Amoruso Giuseppe SpA, Salerno Cruises Srl and Medov Srl – the Italian general agents of the German cruise company – organized the ‘Plaque Exchange Ceremony’ between the ship’s master Thomas Roth and civil and military authorities, as well as technical-nautical service suppliers of the Campania port, in the presence of the Mayor of Salerno, architect Vincenzo Napoli. The latter confirmed that Salerno is determined to welcome cruise passengers and tourists in general, emphasizing the abundance of its tourist attractions.
The ceremony was attended also by Salerno Customs Agency Director Stefano Fasolino, by Corvette Captain Antonio Sogno, representing the Coast Guards, by the Head of Mooring Operators of the Port of Salerno Captain Luciano Testa, by Port Pilots’ Corporation Pilot Captain Mario Russo, by Salerno Stazione Marittima Chairman Antonio Brigantino and Managing Director Orazio De Nigris, by Salerno Cruises Chairman Giuseppe Amoruso and by ship agency Amoruso director Francesca Amoruso.
The 315 meters long German ship, with a 111,500 gross tonnage and a capacity of 3,200 passengers and over 1,000 crew members, launched last February the 9th, is the latest unit of the Royal Caribbean International Group’s subsidiary.
TUI Cruises confirmed its preference for the Campania port due to its strategic position and to the town’s beauties, the Amalfi Coast and the archaeological sites such as Paestum, Pompei and Ercolano.
From April the 11th to December the 4th 2019, 69 ships will call at the port of Salerno. During the imminent dredging works, ships will be distributed between the commercial port, the container and multipurpose terminal and the Manfredi Pier, which will welcome passengers traffic.
