Cruise & Sustainability

The main topics of "Cruise & Sustainability" in Cruise Gateway are environmental certification and energy efficiency for cruise ports, socio-economic impact of cruise and hinterland soft tourism.

“Cruise ships arrive in port with a really large number of passengers, and you want to show them the local attractions. But how do you arrange this in a way that not all of them are driving around by taxi, or to ensure that your most beautiful park or nature area isn’t ruined by too many visitors?” Sebastian Doderer, Port of Hamburg, Cruise Gateway Lead Partner
