Cruise ship traffic in Riga

This year, a record number of ships have registered for the season in Riga.

Riga is an attractive destination for a Baltic Sea cruise. What makes it attractive is the excellent offer of the city of Riga for cruise tourists, which is appreciated by passengers and the infrastructure suitable for cruise service, which is appreciated by cruise ship operators.

Back in June, three cruise ships visited the port of Riga at the same time, as well as the largest of those registered this season, the impressive liner Voyager of the Seas of the cruise operator Royal Caribbean Cruises. It had arrived in Riga for the first time.

The pandemic is still there, so cruise ships are far from being overcrowded, following epidemiological requirements. However, we can see that this year the number of ships entering the port has even exceeded the pre-pandemic volumes.

The list of cruise ships planned for this year can be found on the Freeport of Riga website -
