Monday sees the first voyage from New York of a new four-weekly cargo-passenger service connecting Savannah and New York with Rotterdam, Bremerhaven and Le Havre. Known as AX4, for Atlantic Express 4, the new line was opened last month by Hapag-Lloyd to supplement its existing services.
When the 19,500-ton German-owned Calisto departs New York on Monday, she will have on board her first passengers in this service, and will offer subsequent sailings on July 13, August 17, September 14, October 12, November 9 and December 7. Westbound sailings from Rotterdam will take place on June 25, July 23, August 27, September 24, October 22, November 19 and December 17. Built in 2006, the Calisto features an outdoor swimming pool, table tennis and fitness room in addition to the normal cargo ship traditions of dining with the officers and being allowed to visit the bridge.
The Calisto features two double-bedded passenger cabins, one each on the port and starboard sides. But “POSH” – port out starboard home – only works from the European side to get you the south-facing cabin. Fares are €90 per person per day plus a total of €343 in port fees, deviation insurance and booking fees. Sole occupancy is €105 per day plus extras. New York to Rotterdam in 10 days thus costs €1,243 per person double or €1,393 single, while Le Havre to Savannah takes 9 days and costs €1,153 per person double or €1,288 single.
