Oslo builds cruise partnership with Germany

Germans account for 32% of all cruise passengers in Oslo

With Germans cruising to Norway and Oslo in increasing numbers, a “leisure partnership” between the ports of Oslo and Hamburg has been established so that itineraries between the two can be developed and information and best practices can be shared. German passenger volumes increased by 22% in 2010 and although the rise was smaller in 2011 Germans account for 32% of all cruise passengers in Oslo – the biggest of any nationality. Norway’s fjords are now the second most visited cruise zone for Germans after the western Mediterranean.
“The idea came about as more and more German passengers are cruising from Hamburg to Norway and back”, Gerd Drossel, managing director of the Hamburg Cruise Centre, said.
