Cruise season opens!

On 24 April, the 2010 cruise season opened at the Port of Tallinn. In 2010, the Port of Tallinn is expecting port calls from 274 cruise ships together with about 380,000 tourists. The last, 2009 season was most successful in the Port of Tallinn history with port calls from 310 cruise ships together with 416,000 tourists.

The Hansamarket (a local market located at the harbour quarter) that was launched last year and proved to be an imminent success among the tourists has plans to positively surprise the customers also during this season. Foremostly the emphasis is on providing various activities to varying tourist segments. A street basketball court will be set up for the cruise ship crews, where the teams can compete against each other. The younger ones will be able to enjoy the large traditional Estonian swing – a so called village swing.

The first cruise ship to visit the Port of Tallinn was the exotic MS Fram.
