The town of Hamina in Finland has become the newest partner of Cruise Baltic, becoming the 31st member of the cruise network.

Hamina is located on the Finnish coastline, around 145 kilometres east of the capital Helsinki. It shares the Port of HaminaKotka with the city of Kotka, which is already a Cruise Baltic partner.

“Hamina is ideally placed close to the Port of HaminaKotka in the Gulf of Finland,” said Hannu Muhonen, the mayor of Hamina. “It has been 20 years since we last welcomed cruise ships in our town, so we are very much looking forward to now being able to welcome cruise guests again. For guests arriving in the Port of HaminaKotka, Hamina is really worth a visit. Both the town and the surrounding area have so much to offer.”

Hamina features several historical sites, including the Town Hall built in 1798, and Hamina Fortress, a star fort built in the 18th century. Visitors can also go white water rafting and follow nature trails around the local countryside.

"Cruise Baltic is happy to welcome Hamina to the network consisting of 31 destinations in Finland, Denmark, Sweden, Norway, Estonia, Lithuania, Germany and Poland," said Claus Bødker, director of Cruise Baltic. "Hamina and its surrounding area have a lot to offer for cruise guests and is an exciting destination that complements the other Baltic destinations well."
