The number of cruise passengers crossing through the port of Hamburg has only been growing in recent years, amounting to 810,000 in 2019. Hamburg is a major port in Europe, with a number of cruise routes starting in one of Germany’s most northern cities. Numerous cruise liners known around the world also depart from or make stop in Hamburg.

Off on a cruise

Cruise trips are generally divided by their shipping routes, namely whether it’s a sea or river cruise. The number of people in Germany who prefer cruise vacations as leisure travel has increased slightly in the last three years. Considering that cruises are typically on the expensive side, it is not surprising that when looking at the age distribution among German sea cruise passengers, the highest share was for the 50-59 age group. Sea cruise passenger numbers in Germany have been increasing, while river cruises saw somewhat fluctuating tourist numbers, though the last two years recorded a positive trend.

Sea and river cruises

Germany offers many options for cruise passengers, with its several ports of departure, as well as plenty of river cruises to choose from. On average, based on most recent data, holidaymakers went away for a week on river cruises. Sea cruise trips lasted a little longer, sometimes over nine days.
