In the current year there will be significant improvements in the port structure. The first thing that will go into operation in the spring is the new terminal building "Warnemünde Cruise Center 8". The completion of the renovation work at the previously modest-looking Warnemünder Bahnhof is scheduled for May and the new shore power system will start test operations in summer. All of these measures will certainly contribute to the success of the ROSTOCK PORT's cruise season.
