Opening of the New Cruise Pier in Kristiansand
The new cruise pier allows the Port of Kristiansand to welcome Oasis-class ships, and is an important part of our strategy of increasing the number of port calls and improving the trademark of the Port of Kristiansand as one of Norway`s most attractive cruise ports.
The cruise pier is located in the very heart of the city centre, and the investment in the new pier underlines our position as the natural choice of port call between Oslo and Bergen, and as an attractive port call to “add another country” for the Baltic market.
This is a fantastic day, and marks the opening of a new chapter in our Ports history. We’re also delighted to welcome Costa Favolosa as our first ship to the new pier. We appreciate returning cruise lines that have seen the benefits of port calls in Kristiansand. Costa Favolosa is such a cruise line and we always look forward to welcome the guests and crew from this particular cruise ship, says the Port Director Halvard Aglen in a short statement.
