Helsinki cruising season slower than in 2008

  25.09.2009    

During this cruise season, Helsinki recorded slightly fewer visits from international cruise ships than before.
This year, there were 264 visits, while last year the number was 270. Respectively, this year the
total number of passengers was 358,000, compared to the 360,000 passengers in 2008. Helsinki’s rival
cities on the Baltic Sea, Stockholm and Tallinn, both attracted more than 400,000 visitors during 2009,
making the relative portion of passengers to Helsinki slightly lower.
The City of Helsinki is developing its services especially considering the exchange visits of cruise ships.
During this summer, there were 14 exchange visits, compared to the 17 visits last year. During 2009, a
new pier for cruise ships was introduced; the Melkki Quay in West Harbour had a total of 17 visits this
year.
