Various organisers and shipping companies have a wealth of offers for you. Regardless of whether you’re planning a short trip on the Baltic or the Norwegian Sea or if you want to tour the seven seas. Of course, the ships belonging to the Rostock shipping company AIDA are regular guests, while the Queen Elizabeth and Norwegian Star have both moored at the port of the Warnemünde resort on multiple occasions. Anyone wanting to observe the impressive ships coming in, from the Warnemünde pier for example, will usually need to get up early as these ships arrive in the mornings or mid-morning. The floating hotels invariably head back out to sea towards the evening. To make sure that you’re in the port at the right time to witness an arrival or departure, take a look at the latest Warnemünde cruise ship calendar when planning your trip!

As finding a parking spot around the port is really difficult, especially during the peak season, your best bet is to park at one of the park and ride facilities at the town entrance and then use local public transport.

Previous guests to Warnemünde

The ninth ship in the Kussmund fleet, the AIDAmar, which launched in 2012, has already visited Warnemünde on several occasions. 253 metres long, it has seven restaurants as well as its own brewery on board. The 294 metre-long Norwegian Star, meanwhile, has an open-air beer garden. The ship, originating from the Meyer Werft shipyard in Papenburg, has been fitted with six hot tubs and a volleyball court.


Among other ships to have arrived in Warnemünde is the Vision of the Seas, which bears the epithet of “glassy ship” due to its large panoramic windows. While at sea, its passengers enjoy spending their free time on the climbing wall or playing mini golf. Meanwhile, the Princess Royal – 330 metres long, 3,600 beds – attracts people thanks to its “Seawalk”, a walkway made of glass which juts over the side of the ship 40 metres above the sea.
