The Bremen Senator for Economy, Employment and Ports presented the Columbus Cruise Center (CCCB) team with the certification document awarded by "Servicequalität Deutschland" in recognition of the high standard of services provided. "Servicequalität Deutschland" is Germany's leading quality seal in the tourism industry. And CCCB is the first cruise terminal in Germany to be awarded the certificate. As Malaike Schlereth, Quality Manager at CCCB commented, "On the one hand, we want to offer our shipping line customers professional and first-class service for their passengers setting out on vacation. To achieve this, we are constantly reinforcing staff quality awareness through the ongoing implementation and monitoring of certification requirements. And on the other, certification guarantees a sustainable and lasting high level of quality." For thirteen years now CCCB has been well placed as a provider of services to tourists in the port.
