Cruise Conference 2024 - 13th - 16th May Stockholm

I am delighted to welcome our loyal members, cruise line executives, press and other stakeholders to Stockholm.

Following very successful Cruise Europe Conferences in Edinburgh and Lisbon, our members have decided that this years port of call is Stockholm.
Stockholm, the capital city of Sweden, is one of the most beautiful cities in Europe located right between the lake Mälaren and the Baltic sea.
You are never far from the water in this fantastic city, and the archipelago is a must see attraction.

Stockholm is also a vibrant and modern Scandinavic city with Michelin star cuisine, bars and nightlife.
Add cultural attractions like the Vasa Museum and you have a world class destination.

Stockholm is a marquee cruise port, and is very often included in itineraries to the Baltic sea.
At Cruise Europe, we want to support our loyal Baltic members who have seen a reduction in the number of calls since the Ukraine war started.
We will highlight the many benefits of taking a cruise in the Baltic sea in our 3 days Cruise Europe Conference in Stockholm.

Welcome to the Cruise Europe Conference.

Destination Stockholm

Built on 14 islands surrounded by vast open water, Stockholm has a unique and unforgettable character. You might be in a cosmopolitan capital city but you’re never far from a picturesque park or other scenic walking spot. We have an impressive selection of historic sights and attractions, art galleries and museums - many within easy walking distance of one another.

Not to mention, our city is widely publicized as one of the world’s most dynamic, creative and exciting metropolises. Stockholm is the birthplace of cutting-edge fashion and design, a gastronomic hotspot with myriad bars and restaurants, and a capital of culture where music and art flourish.

Ports of Stockholm make the perfect choice for cruise calls. Situated in the heart of the Baltic region, there’s everything you need for pre- and post-cruise stays in close proximity, including first-rate hotels, frequent overseas flight connections and effective ground handling and tour services.

Among the world’s largest passenger ports, Ports of Stockholm provides facilities and services for ferry, cruise and freight traffic in Stockholm, Nynäshamn and Kapellskär. In a normal year, 16 million passengers pass through the ports, the majority of them sailing to and from Finland, the Baltics, Poland and Sweden’s largest island, Gotland.
Approximately half of all cruise liners visiting Stockholm each year call at Frihamnen. Stockholm Cruise Centre Frihamnen is a modern cruise terminal dedicated to turnarounds, with the Freeport Cruise Terminal equipped to accommodate high numbers of passengers simultaneously arriving and departing.
