Satisfied Customers Report on their NSB Freighter Voyages from Le Havre to New York in the Hanjin Palermo and from La Spezia to Singapore in the Hanjin Basel

Happy clients Justin Webb and Stephanie Soleil reported to us today on their voyage this month from Le Havre to New York on the 45,625-tonne NSB container ship Hanjin Palermo:

“Just wanted to say thanks for organizing our container ship cruise. Man did we ever luck out. Smooth seas, good cook, an excellent captain, and we got out of NYC just before Hurricane Irene hit. Phew.”
Here is Justin’s blog and some photos of their early morning arrival:

Equally, Keith and Joyce Woodend wrote us from Singapore on their arrival by cargo ship from La Spezia on NSB’s somewhat larger 68,252-tonne Hanjin Basel:
“We had a great time on the Hanjin Basel and the Captain and crew were exceptional in offering us whatever we needed including excursions in Barcelona and Port Said arranged by the agents there.  The vessel is only 8 years old and is in excellent shape.  We were very comfortable and can highly recommend NSB as a carrier for passengers.  The only drawback with NSB is that their ships only stay in port from 12 to 24 hours so sometimes it is difficult to get off and go ashore to see anything.”
The Woodends continue their voyage across the Pacific and through the Panama Canal to Houston in the Rickmers Singapore..
