Network With Stockholm Cruise Network, a network through which Ports of Stockholm deals with the majority of cruise marketing, we work to make sure that Stockholm is on the map of attractive cruise destinations. The objectives are to work in new markets over the long term and to increase the number of turnarounds, which means being the location where passengers begin and/or end their cruises and therefore often choose to spend an extra day and night ashore.

For many years Ports of Stockholm has had good capacity facilities for offloading black and grey water in port. The shipping companies are well aware that the environment is a future survival factor and are continuously striving for improvement. Many have their own water management, recycling and waste sorting aboard and for those who do not we are able to provide support for these activities at our ports.
Ports of Stockholm also actively works collaboratively to reduce the impact on the environment.
