Ocean Quay passes another test

The largest number of cruise passengers as yet to disembark at Ocean Quay to visit Copenhagen took place on 30 August

On 30 August, CMP’s dedicated new cruise terminal at Ocean Quay experienced the arrival of the largest number of passengers so far. Three large cruise liners – Royal Princess, Costa Luminosa and MSC Poesia – docked with a total of over 8,700 passengers ending their cruise in Copenhagen and 8,700 new guests starting their cruise with the three ships later in the day. 

”This is the largest number of passengers we have received at one time at Ocean Quay since it was opened on 2 May this year, and our staff and collaborative partners have once again proved that we are able to cope on days with such large volumes of traffic, and it tells us that our passenger terminals and facilities work,” says Arnt Møller Pedersen, COO Cruise & Ferries in CMP.

”It is very satisfying that the cruise lines are also delighted with our new terminal, and that interest in putting Copenhagen in their programme remains high. Ocean Quay has extended our capacity, and we have done whatever possible to ensure a positive experience for the passengers, whether they are here en route in their cruise or they are beginning or ending their cruise experience here.”

However, it was not only Ocean Quay that was busy on 30 August: CMP was visited by a further four cruise liners with a total of 5,500 guests at other terminals: AIDAbella, Europa and Marina in Copenhagen and Empress in Malmö. 

CMP has had a busy season so far this year, and Copenhagen and Malmö have been visited by lots of cruise passengers, who have been exploring the two cities. The overall number of visitors this season is expected to be fully 780,000 passengers and 230,000 crew members distributed over 324 arrivals.
