One of the best ways to cross the Atlantic Ocean by liner trade - a freighter voyage from Antwerp to the east coast of the USA! From Chester you reach downtown Philadelphia in about 15 minutes by car. By train, New York is just 150 km away from Philadelphia.
Usual boarding days (subject to change): Tuesdays (evening) in Antwerp, on Saturdays in Liverpool, on Tuesdays in Chester/PA and on Fridays from Wilmington/NC
Eastbound voyages can only be booked until Antwerp, one-ways further on to Southampton are not possible.
For bookings from Antwerp to Wilmington, it is in rare cases necessary to disembark in Chester due to maritime regulations.
Dfferent vessels with different cabins are sailing on this
route, so not every cabin mentioned here is available on every ship.
Sailings: approx. weekly sailings.
Subject to change.
Visa: Important! All passengers need a B1/B2 visa for the USA (only except of citizen of the United States or Canada). ESTA is insufficient.
