About Cruise Europe
Cruise Europe is a business to business network of cruise ports and destinations in Northern & Atlantic Europe. We started in 1991 with 27 members as the first cruise industry network in Europe, and have now grown to around 140 members in over 20 countries. On behalf of our members we provide the broader cruise industry with a professional and reliable partnership adding value for the cruise lines and their guests.
The Atlantic Europe region of Cruise Europe encompasses thirty ports and destinations in the seven participating countries. The Atlantic coast of Europe, from Germany to Portugal, offers the cruise passenger year-round experiences in a very vibrant and diverse region. This region, initially regarded as containing marquee transit and repositioning ports is now recognized by the industry as having some of the most exciting itineraries on the cruise calendar for “all year round” cruising.
In the Baltic we have around 30 members. The Baltic region offers easy access to ocean adventures in 10 countries on a string surrounding the Baltic Sea. On a cruise to the Baltic region you can wake up in a new country every day. The region has a rich tradition, but is still very modern and dynamic with world famous cities and stunning scenery.
UK + Ireland
In our UK & Ireland region we have over 30 members from England, Scotland, Northern Ireland, Wales and the Republic of Ireland. This Cruise Europe Region offers world-class destinations, cultural landmarks, fascinating heritage, cosmopolitan cities and spectacular countryside. The excellent geographic location within Northern Europe gives plenty of scope for planning cruises due to its numerous islands on its western shorelines. Itineraries from this region also includes the Baltic, Iceland and the Norwegian Fjords.
Norway, Iceland & Faroes
The Norway – Iceland – Faroe Islands is the northernmost region of Cruise Europe. In this region of spectacular scenery we have around 40 members in 3 countries. Our members range from small towns in the fjords to vibrant cities. This is the region to visit if you are looking for world class scenery and wildlife.
