Ports of Lister are attractive cruise destinations between Kristiansand and Stavanger with a wide range of varied excursions. In recent years, the ports have experienced continuous growth within the cruise segment. Cruises have therefore become a focus area for the port company. Income from cruise and passenger traffic helps to maintain and develop infrastructure that is also used by cargo ships and other sea traffic, and cruises contribute to increased local value creation within tourism and trade, as well as the maritime industry. There is a "One ship a day" policy for cruise ships, which makes the Lister ports an exclusive port for many shipping companies.
