Additionally, HCN e.V., in close co-operation with Hamburg Tourismus GmbH (HHT) and the Tourismusverband Hamburg (TVH) along with the port agents, intends to promote the further development and creation of cruise-specific tourism offerings. These are to be attractive and unique for passengers and crewmembers alike, as well as for Hamburg visitors and business travellers.
The same applies for touristic pre- and post-programmes in conjunction with cruises where Hamburg is the departure point and destination of the cruise. These programmes are intended to entice passengers to combine their ship travel with a city break.
Cruise passengers’ positive Hamburg experiences and impressions enhance the Elbe metropolis’s renown and attractiveness as a travel destination internationally.
