The Latvian port of Riga has become the latest company to join the Cruise Baltic Network.
Riga brings the number of port and destination members to 32.
The port is located where the Daugava River meets the Baltic Sea. Cruise ships of up to 300 m in length are able to berth very close to the city centre.
“We are very pleased to be a part of Cruise Baltic and we are confident that our new membership will be valuable for Riga as a cruise destination.
“Our truly unique and amazing city offers a great variety of architecture, historical and cultural gems. We look forward to an active and productive collaboration with partners of the network,” said Jelena Burdastova, Cruise Manager, Freeport of Riga.
Riga has nine quays available for cruise ships of up to 320 m in length with a water depth of up to 10 m. The port is expecting 63 calls this year.
“Cruise Baltic is proud to welcome Freeport of Riga to our network, as the first port in Latvia (to join). We work for the entire Baltic Sea region.
Therefore, we are always excited to include new destinations and by welcoming Riga to the network, we now have an even stronger representation throughout the Baltic Sea region,” added Klaus Bondam, Cruise Baltic Director.
