First New Year cruises to Copenhagen

With two arrivals for New Year, CMP has further extended the season for Christmas cruises. It is an initiative which underlines Copenhagen’s position as a cruise destination.

Christmas decorations in the streets, exciting shopping and the cosy Christmas market in Tivoli. A Christmassy Copenhagen is popular among cruise visitors, and this year CMP will be visited by three ships during the Christmas month: Aurora and Arcadia from P&O Cruises on 10th and 22nd December, and Black Watch from Fred Olsen on 18th December.

However, this year Copenhagen also has the premier for the first New Year cruises, with two ships docking at Langelinie on 30th and 31st December, and the visitors having the opportunity to experience the capital at the start of the New Year. The Norwegian shipping company Fjord Lines is sailing from Bergen via Stavanger to Copenhagen with its two LNG-powered sister ships, Stavangerfjord and Bergensfjord.

The two environmentally friendly arrivals are an exciting new initiative, and they will make a further contribution to underlining CMP’s position in the cruise market.

”We are experiencing fantastic developments in the cruise area”, says Arnt Møller Pedersen, COO Cruise and Ferries, CMP.

”Together with other actors in the metropolitan area, we are working hard and investing a lot in order to make Copenhagen a particularly attractive cruise destination. Being able to extend the cruise season with even more arrivals is yet another confirmation that Copenhagen is an exciting and popular destination and one of the best in Europe.”

When the last New Year cruise has departed, CMP will have received over 740,000 cruise passengers in 2016. Next year will break all records with 850,000 cruise passengers, nearly half of them turnarounds. Cruise traffic contributes a total of about DK 1.3 billion to the capital’s economy.
