Trondheim Turnaround Port: connected, culinary and capable

With restrictions lifted the Port of Trondheim is eager to get back to offering turnarounds.

2022 is the year that Trondheim and the region of Trøndelag will shine, being awarded the title of European Region of Gastronomy. It is like the cherry on top, since three local restaurants recently received a Michelin-star.

- I have no doubt that more guests will come to Trondheim and that they’d like to stay for a couple of days before they embark on their next adventure, says Marketing Manager Cruise, Maria K. Undheim, at Trondheim Port.

The Port of Trondheim is centrally located in the city, 30 minutes from the airport, and a short walking distance to the Clarion Hotel & Congress which has been used as terminal facility for check-in. Up to 2600 cruise passengers have seamlessly been embarked and disembarked at the same time before.

- We have successfully operated turnarounds with Pullmantur Cruises since 2012 and would like to use our experience to ensure smooth turnarounds for other cruise lines too, says Maria K. Undheim, at Trondheim Port.

Trondheim, the Royal capital of Norway, is well-connected with direct international connections to cities such as London, Amsterdam, Copenhagen, Stockholm, Malaga, Nice and Alicante. Recently, it was announced that Berlin and Manchester will be added in 2022 as well as a connection to New York via Iceland.

In 2020 the area adjoining the cruise quay was enlarged. That adds more flexibility for operations with smaller vessels. Trondheim Port does not have a designated cruise terminal, therefore screening of guests and luggage were previously done at the airport or within the vessel.

Let’s start the journey in Norway in its heart – Mid-Norway also known as the Home of Nordic Flavours.
