Hamina in Finland becomes new partner in Baltic Cruise Network
The cruise network, Cruise Baltic, is proud to announce Hamina in Finland as the latest partner to join the network. The new partner brings the total number of cruise ports and destinations to 31, which is the highest number ever.
The latest addition to the Cruise Baltic network is the town Hamina. The town is located on the magnificent Finnish coastline approximately 145 kilometres east of the country’s capital Helsinki. With the central location in the Gulf of Finland, Hamina is an easy-to-reach destination for cruises in and out of the exciting Baltic area.
Hamina shares the Port of HaminaKotka with the city Kotka, which is already a Cruise Baltic partner. The Port of HaminaKotka is located only a short cruise from Helsinki up the coast, and just a short drive from the port, people can experience the beautiful town Hamina.
“Hamina is ideally placed close to the Port of HaminaKotka in the Gulf of Finland. It has been twenty years since we last welcomed cruise ships in our town, so we are very much looking forward to now being able to welcome cruise guests again. For guests arriving in the Port of HaminaKotka, Hamina is really worth a visit. Both the town and the surrounding area have so much to offer,” says The Mayor of Hamina, Hannu Muhonen.
Besides its stunning beauty, the main attraction is adventures in nature. You can for instance go white water rafting or follow trails in nature. The town also has several historical sights to see such as churches, the Town Hall from 1798 and Hamina Fortress, a unique star fort built in the 18th century.
“Cruise Baltic is happy to welcome Hamina to the network consisting of now 31 destinations in Finland, Denmark, Sweden, Norway, Estonia, Lithuania, Germany and Poland. Hamina and its surrounding area have a lot to offer for cruise guests and is an exciting destination that complements the other Baltic destinations well,” says Director of Cruise Baltic, Claus Bødker.
Hamina is the 31st partner to join Cruise Baltic and the sixth Finnish destination in the network.
Cruise Baltic was founded in 2004 and today it includes 31 ports and destinations in the Baltic Sea Region. The network offers easy access, great service, high standards, and full integration between ports and cities throughout the region.
