This year’s last cruise liner visits the seaport of Petropavlovsk-Kamchatsky

The Amsterdam cruise liner called at the seaport of Petropavlovsk-Kamchatsky on October 11, 2018. The cruise liner’s call ended the sea cruise season in Kamchatka Territory.

Pilots of the FSUE “Rosmorport” Petropavlovsk Branch made safe pilotage of the vessel for its docking to Berth No. 6, Berth No. 7 and Berth No. 8 of the seaport of Petropavlovsk-Kamchatsky.

The length of the Amsterdam liner is 237 meters, the breadth is 32 meters. A total of 859 passengers from over 15 world countries and 620 crewmembers arrived in the seaport aboard the 10-deck ship.

From 2001 this is the first cruise liner of such length that is capable of docking and mooring to berths in the seaport of Petropavlovsk-Kamchatsky. It was possible due to overall repairs of Berth No. 6 and Berth No. 7 carried out by the Petropavlovsk Branch. Such works made it possible to accommodate vessels of such dimensions.

Upon completion of its one-day visit to the seaport the liner successfully left it with support of pilots of the Petropavlovsk Branch and moved to the coasts of Japan.

During the 2018 navigation, ten passenger vessels visited the seaport of Petropavlovsk-Kamchatsky and a total of 9.000 tourists arrived aboard the liners to visit the capital of Kamchatka Territory for sightseeing.
