Many Danes start with a cruise from Copenhagen

Copenhagen is a popular starting point for cruises in the summer months to the Nordic region and the Baltic States

The spring also heralds the start of the cruise season in CMP, which this year will be additionally exciting as the new cruise ship quay in Copenhagen’s - Oceankaj - port will be put into operation for the first time. This will make conditions for visitors and crews even better, regardless of whether Copenhagen is a destination that is part of a trip or the ship is here on turnaround.

One of the summer’s recurring arrivals will be ”Legend of the Seas” from the Royal Caribbean shipping company, which has several cruises on the calendar starting in Copenhagen. It is the popular routes along the Norwegian coast and extending to the North Cape, or the Baltic Sea with Saint Petersburg and the Baltic countries, that are on the agenda. The major natural and cultural experiences en route attract visitors from Europe and the USA, but there are also a lot of Danes who can see the benefits of starting their journey here.

”We market directly to the Danish market, and Copenhagen is a popular starting point in the summer season”, says Ole Kyed, adm. manager for, which has ”Legend of the Seas” included in its major cruise programme.

”There are many Danes who use a cruise out of Copenhagen to test whether the type of holiday is also something for them, and who subsequently take a cruise in the Caribbean or the Mediterranean. Of course, you also save on the air ticket by choosing Copenhagen as point of departure”.

CMP is anticipating 313 arrivals in Copenhagen and Malmö during the 2014 cruise season, with more than 750,000 passengers.
