Future Cruise Ship Dimensions
The cruise fleet in the Baltic Sea is going to grow continuously. There is a trend to larger ships with higher capacity as well as there are increasingly more ships of sizes up to 1.000 PAX. Both the trends are existing concurrently.
The Baltic-max dimensions are defined by the four access routes into the Baltic Sea.
It is expected that cruise lines will deploy more of its up to 3.000+ PAX accommodating cruise vessels – as well as the smaller sizes – in the Baltic in the near future, but the 5.000+ PAX class will only be seen very rarely.
The smaller cruise vessel newbuilds will show extended dimensions compared with older vessels of similar capacity.
Environmental aspects will require increased attention in the future. Obligations to discharge waste water and solid waste in ports – causing increasing volumes due to more passengers - will require investments by the ports.
