Cruise Baltic hosted two familiarisation (FAM) trips this summer, enabling cruise line executives to get first-hand experience of the port facilities and shore excursion possibilities on offer in the Baltic region.

The first FAM trip took place before the Cruise Baltic Summit, which was held in Klaipeda, Lithuania in the first week of September. Participants visited Stockholm and Gothenburg, Sweden; Roenne, Copenhagen and Kalundborg, Denmark; and Klaipeda. The second trip, which took place after the summit, took cruise line representatives to Tallin, Estonia; Kemi, Helsinki and Kotka in Finland; and Mariehamn in the Åland Islands.

“We are very pleased after two successful arranged FAM trips with positive feedback from the participants,” said Claus Bødker, Cruise Baltic director. “The trips gave them the opportunity to ask questions directly to the ports, helped them to make decisions on itineraries and made it even possible to discover hidden gems that are worth adding to an itinerary.”

Cruise Baltic, which has been hosting FAM trips since 2008, plans to continue offering similar excursions long into the future.
