Cruise & Ferry Itinerary Planning 2022

Port of Hamburg constructing new cruise terminal Portland Port to create new berth for cruise vessels The construction of an additional cruise terminal is currently underway in the Port of Hamburg in Germany. The HafenCity Cruise Terminal is being built in HamburgÜberseequartier and will comprise of two berths which are 345 metres and 230 metres long, respectively, accomodating ships with a maximum draught of 10.3 metres. Cruise ships calling at the new terminal will berth directly in the heart of the city near the Elbphilharmonie and right next to the Speicherstadt, a Unesco World Heritage Site. The terminal´s modern infrastructure will enable the parallel check-in of guests from multiple ships at berth. The new facility is set to open in 2024 and, just like the other terminals at the port, will be equipped to deliver shore power to visiting vessels. Portland Port in the UK is to extend and infill its deep-water berth. The planned works will create a new solid berth capable of handling cruise ships up to 350 metres in length overall, as well as an additional 16,000 square metres of working quayside space. The works will also extend the solid berth face of the adjoining Outer Coaling Pier, allowing Portland Port to eventually handle two 350-metre-long cruise vessels at the same time.
