Father Christmas arrives in Copenhagen again

Copenhagen, all decorated for Christmas, will be receiving cruise-ship passengers again in December this year. For the fifth year in a row, Christmas cruises will be docking in Copenhagen. This is a new trend which sees the cruise companies offering round-trips to northern Europe to towns with Christmas markets, so that passengers can shop for Christmas presents and experience a Christmas atmosphere in the towns they visit.

The British shipping companies in particular offer this type of cruise, and the three ships that have registered their arrival during December are all from the UK. There will be around 3,000 passengers in total, all contributing to sales in Copenhagen’s shops and at the Christmas market in Tivoli.

CMP will receive passengers on the quayside with Christmas decorations, a glass of mulled wine, entertainment and Father Christmas himself. First ship is Balmoral on December 2nd 2010. See pictures from call click at images.
