Port of Kristiansand is the preferred cruise port between Oslo and Bergen, and has over the last years experienced a tremendous growth within the cruise market.

An increasing number of cruise ships find their way to Kristiansand, and hundreds of thousands of cruise tourists have visited Kristiansand and the surrounding sights. In 2017 we opened our new cruise pier, where our guests are greeted by a nice row of seasonal souvenir stalls and their first taste of Norway. 2022 is a new record year with 129 calls to our port, and 31 connections to shore power. We have one of Europe's largest shore power facilities, and there is growing interest among shipping companies in connecting to shore power.

Berth10 is the preferred cruise pier in Kristiansand Harbour. Outside the cruise season, the berth is used for offshore and other special calls. Calls to Mandal or Lindesnes use tendering.
