Where Cruise Meets the European Community
10 - 12 SEPTEMBER 2025 | Hamburg, Germany
Seatrade Europe will be back for its 12th edition in Hamburg, the hub of the European cruise industry. Hamburg is the leading European source market for passengers and saw most calls ever in 2022 at 280 calls, even surpassing pre-pandemic levels - the ultimate location for a cruise reunion!
Europe's meeting point for the cruise industry, Seatrade Europe serves as the gateway for the international cruise industry.
Join your community to meet, discuss issues confronting the European cruise and river cruise market, and discover ports/destinations, suppliers, and manufacturers all in one place.
On Thursday 7 September, there was a dedicated River Cruise Day developed in collaboration with content partners & supporters River Cruise Europe & IG Rivercruise. The full day programme offered an opportunity to take a deep dive into the river cruise market. Attendees heard from operators, charterers, suppliers, and destinations that play a key role in the future of river cruising in Europe, with discussions that centered around the differences between river and ocean cruising and what makes river cruise lines & destinations alike, unique.
