The northern German port of Sassnitz has rejoined Cruise Baltic.
With this new German member, the number of member cruise ports and destinations totals 32 – the highest ever.
Sassnitz is a gateway to the island of Rügen and is centrally located in the southwestern part of the Baltic Sea close to the main ship routes, making it a perfect transit call for cruise ships in this region, Cruise Baltic said.
“We are very much looking forward to welcoming more cruise guests to the region. Sassnitz, Rügen and the surrounding area have a lot to offer, so cruise guests can look forward to plenty of memorable experiences.
“An advantage for the cruise lines is that Sassnitz has a favourable geographical location that offers the shortest sea connection from Germany to Scandinavia, Russia and the Baltic states,” claimed Thomas Langlotz, Managing Director, Port of Sassnitz.
Sassnitz city port offers berthing for small to medium-sized cruise ships and Mukran Port, located 6 km from the city port, provides berths for medium and large cruise ships. The port is accessible without the need for pilot services and channel navigation.
“Cruise Baltic is proud to welcome Sassnitz back to the network.The destination has much to offer cruise guests from stunning scenery and sights to relaxation and architecture. It is another unique German destination that, together with the other Baltic destinations, offers cruise guests in the Baltic Sea region great opportunities for unforgettable holiday experiences,” said Director of Cruise Baltic, Claus Bødker.
