After eight months or work, costing SEK14m (approx. €1.36m), the Port of Gothenburg has officially opened the refurbished America Cruise Terminal at the Stigbergskajen in Masthugget.
The terminal is able to receive ships up to 225 m in length and 45 m in width. As such, out of the 43 cruise calls scheduled for this year, 23 will take place at the new facility (other vessels will continue to berth in the outer port area).
The 193 m long AIDAcara was the first ship to call in the new America Cruise Terminal on April 13.
The Port of Gothenburg says that it will serve around 60k guest this year. According to estimations, these passengers will purchase goods and services in the city worth some SEK30m (approx. €2.92m).
