Seven cruise ships in the port of Livorno at the same time. Yesterday, the port  accomodated two nearly 330-meter-long giants, the Celebrity Beyond and Norwegian Escape, at the Italia pier. Another titan from the Scandinavian company, the Epic, was berthed at the Alto Fondale quay

Berth 75 behind the Molo Mediceo was set aside for the Viking Sky. In addition, the historical Porto Mediceo also accommodated three smaller vessels: the Marella Discovery, the Sea Dream and the luxury cruise clipper the Stad Amsterdam.

The port welcomed a total of 9,000 passengers yesterday. 292 cruise ships have been scheduled  to call at Livorno from New Year’s Eve to December 31st.
