Die Abfahrt erfolgte pünktlich, und obwohl wir aufgrund Niedrigwasser länger durch tieferes Fahrwasser bei den Container- und Kreuzfahrtschiffen fahren mussten als geplant, durften wir dann noch die Speicherstadt besichtigen. Vielen Dank für diese extra Zeit-Zugabe von Kapitän Markus!!! Er hat äußerst interessant und unterhaltsam über den Hafen und seine Beteiligten berichtet und sehr lustige Anekdoten angefügt. Sehr zu empfehlen!
