For 2018, there are about 220 calls are scheduled so far, with CGH expecting 880,000 passengers.




The pair are among 10 maiden calls booked, featuring Asuka 2, AIDAperla, AIDAnova, Mein Schiff 1, MSC Meraviglia, Navigator of the Seas, Seabourn Ovation and new Mein Schiff 1 which will be christened in Hamburg next May.




Most frequently calling cruise line customers continue to be AIDA and MSC Cruises.




It has an aim to promote the use of environmentally friendly power. Hamburg will implement new discounts on the port fees and an additional environmental component to reward clean ships.




It announced that Hamburg Cruise Net e.V. (HCN), a Public-Private-Partnership network, is formally succeeding Hamburg Cruise Center (HCC) as a body to support the continued development of cruise traffic in Hamburg.




HCN aims to be a platform in bringing public and private cruise tourism stakeholders together, among others through expert committees set up to identify and utilise opportunities brought about by the strong growth of cruise passenger volumes at Hamburg.




Among the members of HCN is CGH, along with other public bodies such as Hamburg Marketing and the Hamburg Convention Bureau. Dr Stefan Behn acts as chairman of the board of HCN, while Matthias Rieger – who has been md  of HCC since 2015 – is the managing director. Beyond its network function, HCN – which originally started existence as an initiative launched by the Hamburg Senate back in 2014 – is also involved with marketing and PR. The central point of contact for cruise lines is, however, Cruise Gate Hamburg.
