Welcome to Oslo Cruise Network
This website is an information source for both professionals (e.g. cruise lines) and tourists interested in cruise. Oslo Cruise Network was established spring 2004. The main objective is to market and develop Oslo as a cruise destination.
Oslo Cruise Network represents several participating companies/organisations offering a broad range of services to the cruise industry and its visitors.
A small decrease in cruise calls to Oslo in 2014
We expect 21 less cruise ships to Oslo next year. In 2013 we have had cruise calls every month except for February. The season is extended, that has been a goal, but number of calls has been reduced from 166 in 2012 to a total of 159 in 2013.
The reason for less calls this season is among other things that RCCL decided to turn their ships in Stockholm instead of Oslo. Oslo as a turn around port has been a success for the last 8 years for both Norwegian and foreign travelers.
