Strong growth in cruise traffic

The Oslo Harbour Authority expects that at least 310,000 cruise passengers will visit Oslo this year, - 50,000 more than last year. A total of 176 cruise vessels will have called at Oslo before year-end.

Last year the total number of cruise liners visiting the capital reached 150.

 

Margrethe Austad, Marketing chief for the Oslo cruise traffic, beliees one reason for the increase is better marketing, and the fact that Oslo is one of the cities in the so-called Baltic Capital Cruises, which also includes St. Petersburg.

 

She also believes that the new Oslo Opera building, situated on the waterfront attracts many new visitors.

 

Germans are among the largest groups of visitors, 100,000 in number. This is a change from just four to five years ago, when most cruise tourists came from the US.
