The "Ostseebad Warnemünde" is a famous district of the City of Rostock and Germany's most important cruise port even before the City of Hamburg. The port is also the port of call for Princess Cruises from Germany. Warnemünde was once a small fishing village and has retained its old charm to this day.

Before your cruise departs from Germany, you can admire the view of Warnemünde from the panorama café of the 64-metre-high Hotel Neptun.
