The objective of CRUISE GATEWAY is to increase the maritime accessibility by developing the North Sea Region as a cruise destination of its own and promoting it as a “lighthouse” for sustainable cruise.
SSA will be working with key ports from around the North Sea, Rotterdam, Hamburg, Copenhagen, Malmo, Kiel, Bremerhaven, Gothenburg, Esbjerg and Antwerp, in total the project has 14 partners with a total EU funding of €0.9 million.

SSA’s main role in the project being to improve services at ports by promoting environmentally friendly accessibility, transferring best practices, improved passenger handling (e.g. for disabled and elderly people) and creating sustainable business opportunities for the UK ship repair and maintenance industry by increasing the cruise traffic in the region.
