North Sea Metropolises - Discover european metropolises with AIDA
A round trip of the European metropolises
Hamburg is the perfect port for trips to other metropolises. Once a week, an AIDA ship departs from Hamburg for a cruise, calling at several North Sea ports with the option of excursions to the country's major cities, for example from Southampton to London, from Le Havre to Paris, from Zeebrugge to Brussels. Other providers are now also using their ships on similar routes. And the beauty of these voyages: Most of the time it goes back to Hamburg.
From Hamburg you can reach London via the waterway from the port of Southampton. An excursion from Southampton to London leads through the hilly green landscape of southern England dotted with flocks of sheep. London offers unique highlights like the world famous Tower Bridge or the unmistakable Big Ben.
Paris, je t'aime
A special highlight of a North Sea cruise is a visit to the city of love, which one rarely associates with cruises. You travel to the French metropolis from the port city Le Havre. A visit to the Louvre, a crispy croissant in a cosy street café, a view from the Eiffel Tower - and in the evening we return to the ship and on to the next harbour.
Visiting the neighbours
Very close and yet so special - cruises through the North Sea also take you to neighbouring countries. In the Netherlands, major ports such as Amsterdam and Rotterdam are waiting to be explored. From the port city of Zeebrugge in Belgium you can travel to the famous capital Brussels or to Bruges, whose medieval city centre is a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
