Dover Cruise Port and Oceania Cruises welcome 30,000th passenger onboard

SEPTEMBER 28, 2012

Dover Cruise Port and Oceania Cruises were proud to welcome the 30,000th embarking passenger on board cruise ship Marina last week (12.09.12). Clare Newman, Business Delivery Manager, Dover Harbour Board and Bernard Carter, Managing Director of Oceania Cruises presented Joy and Ian Kravitz from Santa Monica, USA with two bottles of champagne.

Luxury operator Oceania Cruises have been visiting the port since June 2004 and introduced the Marina in 2011. The Port of Dover has welcomed the cruise operator a total of 49 times providing a first class service to over 69,000 passengers in total (both embarking and disembarking). The Port of Dover is the start point for the Marina’s ‘Continental Connoisseur’ tour which takes in 15 calls including La Rochelle, Oporto, Seville and Casablanca - ending in Barcelona.

Clare Newman congratulated the couple; “It’s a great start to a holiday, I hope they enjoyed a glass of champagne or two as they sailed out of the iconic port and past the White Cliffs of Dover on-board the elegant Marina. We wish all passengers embarking from Dover a fantastic cruise ship experience.”
