2018 proved to be another highly satisfying cruise season for Cruise Gate Hamburg GmbH (CGH). The operator of Hamburg’s three terminals expects cruise travel in the city to continue to grow sharply. In 2018, CGH recorded 220 calls and probably over 915,000 passengers (2017: 198 calls, 813,000 passengers). The figures exceed the 880,000 passengers originally projected for this season. From 2015 to 2018, the growth rate jumped by 76%.
Around 500,000 visitors came to the waterfront in Hamburg to celebrate the Hamburg Cruise Days. What was even more fantastic was just how satisfied they were with the event, as the results of a visitor survey reveal. The survey was commissioned by the Hamburg Convention Bureau in order to assess the relevance of the Hamburg Cruise Days for Hamburg.
