Cruise Terminals

With two cruise terminals and two cruise quays, the port is well-equipped to receive cruise ships of all sizes. The cruise season in Gothenburg covers the whole year as the port is always free of ice.

Our terminals

America Cruise Terminal

It was from here, more than 100 years ago, that the first liners departed for North America and they continued to do so until 1975. This beautiful and historic setting revived 2018 and is now the central cruise terminal in Gothenburg.

Arendal cruise terminal

Located at the quayside is the impressive 6,000 square metre Volvo Museum. There is also a cafeteria and a shop that sells souvenirs, postcards and other items. It takes around 20 minutes by taxi or bus into the city centre.
