Happy New Year to all our lovely users of Cruisemeet!

As we move into a new year with much more than a handful of ship launches (11 currently!) we look forward to reporting on new ships, new destinations, virtual tours and general cruise stuff for you all!

Many of regular visitors were on cruise ships for New Year’s Eve – however, if you weren’t – have a look at what you missed in just two places around the world!

In the port of Madeira 8 cruise ships gathered from lines such as Cunard Line, Thomson Cruises, AIDA Cruises, Fred Olsen Cruise Lines, Saga Cruises, P&O Cruises, Cruise & Maritime Voyages and TUI Cruises.

AIDA Cruises performed an entire show from one of their ships (AIDAblu) and broadcast it live on YouTube. You can watch the repeat below. (tip: If you can’t understand German, the action kicks off at 19mins~)

Meanwhile in the port of Rio de Janeiro, 4 MSC Cruise ships came together to watch the fireworks over the port

Whatever you did for NYE we hope you have a Happy New Year for 2016 and look forward to bringing you lots of new cruise things to read and watch!

From all at Cruisemeet – Happy New Year!
