Rekord-breaking year

DECEMBER 02, 2016

Cruise Gate Hamburg is happy to announce a record-breaking year with 171 cruise ship visits to Hamburg with more than 710,000 passengers. We expects these figures to rise to nearby 200 arrivals and about 800,000 passengers in the 2017 season. “This is an excellent result given that this is the first year we are fully operational on the three terminals,” says Sacha Rougier, Managing Director of Cruise Gate Hamburg GmbH. “Our work behind the scenes and the close dialogue with the cruise companies resulted in a record number of passengers in 2016. This strategy will pay off in 2017 and the coming years as well. This extraordinary development is also due to the close co-operation with Hamburg Tourismus and Hamburg Cruise Center, within the Cruise Shipping Initiative of Hamburg, called Cruise Net Hamburg.”
