Christmas cruises set record

This year CMP will once again be receiving guests full of Christmas cheer when the Christmas cruise season begins at the end of November. 

”We have a record seven dockings this year,” says COO Arnt Møller Pedersen, responsible for cruise traffic in CMP.

”We are pleased to have the opportunity to extend our season, and our collaborative partner in Copenhagen has also made a special effort to make it a festive visit for the guests.”

Copenhagen has its Christmas decorations up and it is the Christmas market in the Tivoli Gardens and the shops on Strøget in particular that attract large numbers of visitors. Besides the traditional Nordic Christmas market, this year Tivoli has produced a Russian Christmas adventure with a Russian village and a snow-covered Vasily Cathedral.

It is British shipping companies and visitors in particular that have made Christmas cruises a tradition. They buy a cruise, typically including Hamburg, Kiel, Copenhagen, Gothenburg and Oslo, which gives them plentiful opportunities to buy Christmas presents en route.
