The port is enormous. It was fun to see all the old warehouses and also the immense port operations. There was an interesting model of all the development that is taking place.

Our cruise ship provided coaches to transfer the 35 to 40 minutes to The Town Hall where the main Christmas market is. The port itself is clean and functional with coaches waiting ready outside for our disembarkation.
