Cruise with the Europeans 2016

14.11.2016 Homepage

Following many successful years, nearly 700 members and friends of 15 European Chambers joined the 16th Cruise with the Europeans on Thursday, 10 November 2016. The MV Sydney 2000, waited at King St Wharf, Jetty No. 1 for everyone to board.

With beautiful weather following a thunderstorm the day before, the sunshine and warm temperatures were enjoyed and much welcomed by everyone. Sydney’s spectacular harbour showed off its best side, which could be enjoyed from all four levels of the cruise ship, including the open top deck. 

Apart from stunning harbour scenery, established Principal Partner Lufthansa brought a second highlight on board, for all guests to enjoy. With a special chair and virtual reality glasses, the guests could escape from the cruise boat for a unique experience. 

After returning to the wharf in Barangaroo, many attendees made their way down to the King St Brewhouse, the joint after-party location, to continue networking and strengthen their contact base within the European community. 

We would like to thank our Principal Partner, the Lufthansa Group, for generously supporting the Cruise with the Europeans again this year. Also, we would like to thank Captain Cook Cruises for its excellent service and Gerolsteiner for providing natural mineral water for all attendees.

We look forward to welcoming you at our Cruise with the Europeans in 2017, or at one of our many other events in the meantime.
