Cruise & Ferry Itinerary Planning 2023

2 9 In 2022, the Port of Trondheim opened shore power facilities for expedition-sized cruise ships. This has enabled the frequent and regular use of more sustainable energy sources by visiting vessels. For example, Hurtigruten’s Otto Sverdrup has already been supplied with shore power 11 times this season. The port is also working on extending shore power connections to the main cruise quay in the future. In addition, the Port of Trondheimt plans to increase the economic impact of each cruise call, with the ultimate goal of sustainably growing the city’s cruise tourism. Trondheim Port Authority, Norway As part of its big sustainability ambitions, Port of Oslo aims to offer shore power to cruise vessels docking at Revierkaien Pier by 2025. It also implemented the Environmental Port Index – an economic incentive to support sustainable and eco-friendly cruise operations – in 2019. Beyond the port, the city of Oslo is delivering on its green reputation. Oslo’s unique closeness to nature provides an abundance of exciting activities with a low carbon footprint, from guided forest hikes to kayak trips on the Oslo fjord. Several of Oslo’s special venues are eco-certified, including The Norwegian National Opera & Ballet and the Norwegian Maritime Museum. Port of Oslo, Norway Le Havre in Northern France has made ambitious choices regarding the environmental impact of cruise terminals, pledging that all quays dedicated to maritime cruises will be electrified before the end of 2025. This will allow ships to switch off their engines during stopovers, which will reduce carbon dioxide emissions by approximately 100 tons per 12-hour period, as well as two tons of other pollutants. The cruise terminals have also been designed to welcome cruise passengers in more environmentally friendly ways. The new buildings scheduled to be built will be energy positive, thanks to the addition of a large photovoltaic roof. The same attitude will be applied to the construction, which will prioritise low-carbon operations and transport 10 per cent of materials by river to reduce the amount of road traffic.
