Here is the New Cruise Pier
We are building a new cruise pier in Kristiansand. This was the conclusion of the latest board meeting of the Port of Kristiansand. The current pier Silokaia will be terminated as a cruise terminal due to the development of the real-estate project Kanalbyen.
The new cruise pier will be established on the outside of todays container terminal. The Port of Kristiansand has over the latest years experienced a tremendous growth of cruise port calls, with record year of 2014 as a current high of 76 port calls.
Cruise passengers are warmly welcomed not only by the Port, but also by the City of Kristiansand and the region as a whole. The cruise industry is a large market for the regional tourist industry, and represent a significant income for the local industry.
