Cruise ship docks in Port of Milwaukee

MILWAUKEE — The Port of Milwaukee welcomed the Hamburg on Monday, morning, September 14th  — a 400 passenger cruise ship that is touring the Great Lakes.

The ship traveled under the Hoan Bridge between 6:00 a.m. and 7:00 a.m. and docked in the inner harbor (along the west side of Jones Island) at approximately 7:00 a.m.

Ships carrying cargo make hundreds of stops at the port each year, but the docking of such a large cruise ship is an unusual event at the Port of Milwaukee.
