Karmsund Havn’s commitment to cruise tourism started in 2010, when good forces in the region joined forces so that the first cruise ship could be welcomed in May 2013. The goal sat at the time, was to approach 40 cruise port calls by 2018. As the 2018 season is ending, we can look back on 46 cruise port calls and over 73,000 passengers visiting our district.
The fact that Haugalandet has been recognized as destination for cruise tourism is clearly shown by preliminary figures for coming seasons. In 2019 Karmsund Havn expect 49 cruise port calls and over 88,000 passengers, for 2020, 65 port calls and over 130,000 passengers have already been booked.
