We are happy to expand our network. Come aboard!

In HCN, companies with a reference to cruises work closely with state-sector actors in the form of a public-private partnership (PPP). As a leading cruise shipping network, Hamburg Cruise Net e.V. represents the interests of its members and, as a platform, offers an array of opportunities for exchanging experiences and dialogue.

Alongside the association members, the municipal organisations Cruise Gate Hamburg GmbH (CGH) and Hamburg Marketing GmbH (HMG), as a holding with their members Hamburg Invest Wirtschaftsförderungsgesellschaft mbH (HIW), Hamburg Tourismus GmbH (HHT) and Hamburg Convention Bureau GmbH, also contribute their expertise to the network.

Who can become a member of Hamburg Cruise Net e.V.?
In principle anyone who has, or would like to have, direct or indirect ties to cruise shipping in Hamburg. The association is open to all companies, service providers, organisations and also private individuals who work for the industry.
