Expert forum reinforces cruise ship pioneering role in sustainability

CUXHAVEN. More than 100 representatives from business, politics and science came together in June at the Cuxhaven Cruise Forum to discuss, among other things, restarting the industry and what routes to take in respect of ship propulsion systems. Against this background, Member of the Bundestag and coordinator for the maritime economy and tourism, Claudia Müller (2nd on the left) stated: “The cruise ship industry is investing heavily in innovative propulsion systems and is taking major risks in challenging economic times. This will also secure thousands of jobs at German shipyards and deserves our support.” And Chairman of Cuxhaven Tourism Association (TWG), Norbert Plambeck, highlighted the regional aspect: “Once again, Cuxhaven positioned itself as an attractive cruise port in 2021. The passengers of Hurtigruten Expeditions are amazed by the rich maritime heritage of our town.” IHK Stade and TWG were the organisers of the Cruise Forum.
