They all have the same history and traditions, with cutting edge facilities T prepared for a model approach to small cruise ship tourism. From heritage and
walking tours in ancient ports to a dip in a modern Baltic spa, South Baltic
Destinations are ready to expand the market for the small cruise ship industry.
However, each destination has its own charm and attractiveness, what makes the
combination especially interesting for tourists.
Within JOHANN cities, ports and tourism managers are working closely together
with shipping lines and cruise operators with the aim to prepare the cities and ports
and to promote them towards the operators.
The pilot trip shall be the basis for a SWOT analysis of South Baltic destinations as
basis for improvement measures that will be developed in JOHANN and beyond.

(Poland). The latter was built by Gdansk Shipyard in year 2000. Horizon class is
