We are happy to expand our Network. Come aboard with us!

Companies connected with cruise shipping work together closely in HCN with public bodies in a public-private partnership (PPP). As a leading cruise shipping network, Hamburg Cruise Network represents the interests of its members and serves as a platform for diverse forms of dialogue and sharing experience.

Expertise is contributed by the members and by municipal organisations Cruise Gate Hamburg GmbH (CGH) and Hamburg Marketing GmbH (HMG) with its constituent bodies Hamburg Invest Wirtschaftsförderungsgesellschaft mbH (HIW) and Hamburg Tourismus GmbH (HHT).
