Passengers of sea cruises in Germany 1998-2018

Sea cruise passenger numbers have increased year after year in Germany, signifying a long-term positive trend in a competitive industry. In 2018, over 2.2 million passengers had gone on a sea cruise, compared to 1.69 million five years earlier.

Sea and river cruises

Cruises can take place either on rivers or at sea. On average, Germans went on sea cruises for 9.23 days (average duration from 2007 to 2018). Meanwhile, by comparison, river cruises lasted 7.43 days during the same time span. River cruise passenger numbers fluctuated in recent years, but began to pick up again, amounting to over 496 thousand in 2018.

Cruise ports in Germany

Germany has several cities which are home to busy cruise ports from which ships and liners leave for various routes around the world. Of these, most recently Rostock/ Warnemünde was in the lead, based on passenger numbers, followed by Hamburg and then Kiel. Having said that, the number of German holidaymakers who prefer cruise vacations as leisure travel has been slowly increasing.
