Cruises to Oslo can be divided in two main groups:
•Baltic cruises (50% of passengers in Oslo), where Oslo is the only Norwegian port and St. Petersburg is the main destination
•Norwegian cruises (50% of passengers in Oslo), with visits to Bergen, the fjords and sometimes North Cape
In 2012 Oslo had cruise tourists from 131 different nations. Passengers from Germany (70,000) account for 35% of Oslos total cruise passengers alone. The second and third largest nationalities are USA (39,000) and Britain (29,000). The Italian, Spanish and French markets are also among the most important.
Many cruise vessels spend the night in Oslo. This gives us the opportunity to offer new and exciting experiences to our visiting cruise passengers like restaurants, opera and ballet, theatre, concerts and other cultural evening- and nightlife events in Oslo. 15 of AIDA's Oslo calls stayed overnight in Oslo in 2015.
