Trondheim Port Authority (TPA) has been allocated Nkr 20 million (€1.7 million) by the government to establish shore power for cruiseships at the main cruise quay. The facility is to supply 50Hz and 60Hz, 6.6kV & 11kV and up to 12 mW with IEC/IEEE 80005-1 plugs. The total cost is estimated at NKr87 million, with the Nkr 67 million balance coming from TPA.

In order to communicate to the community the economic value of cruise tourism and its geographic spread, a comprehensive analysis is taking place this summer, explains Maria Kuhnl Undheim, marketing manager cruise TPA. In addition the port has arranged to take politicians on board methanol-ready Mein Schiff 7 to further communicate the sustainability of cruise vessels. This is the third year that visits aboard have been organised.

In late February/early March 2025, Trondheim will be hosting the FIS Nordic World Ski Championship. Buses in the region will be used for transportation to and from the arena of Granasen, just 10 minutes from the city.

There are now direct flights to London to Munich and Amsterdam, making the Norwegian city more easily accessible for fly-cruise.

This year, 93 calls are expected to Trondheim, Hitra, Froya and Namsos, all of which are part of the TPA. Up to 198,000 passengers will discover the heart of Norway, Trondelag, now known as Home of Nordic Flavour.
