Expecting all time high in cruise calls 2018
Friday, January 5, 2018 - 09:29 by trondheim
A high increase in cruise calls as well as the returning turnaround operations to Trondheim Port call for a strengthened workforce as well as shorex and port infrastructure improvements.
13 new tours were added to the existing program and a new bollard will further improve mooring at the cruise quay.
That is why the cruise coordinator will work 100% in 2018 representing both Trondheim Port Authority and the destination. Trondheim will have the pleasure of celebrating the Norwegian National Day together with the guests of Meraviglia. It will be very special for both the 4500 guests and us! We also welcome back Pullmantur with an all-time high of 7 turnarounds of MS Zenith.
Infrastructure-wise we can report that the market square in Trondheim will undergo major reconstruction during the next two years.
Trondheim Port Authority will build a new bollard (200 t) at 240m west of the cruise quay as well as enlarge the bus-parking within the ISPS-area even more. Works are to be completed by August 2018. Last but not least Trondheim Port Authority will introduce discounts on harbour dues for ships registered in ESI in 2018. Additionally, rental of a new 12m gangway is possible from now on.
