Yet another award for Copenhagen Malmö Port

The initiative to attract and retain cruise tourism has been successful, and the new and better facilities for ships  and passengers at Ocean Quay have already proved their worth in their first season.
Once again the huge amount of work that has been put into making Copenhagen Malmö Port an outstanding cruise destination has been rewarded. The Seatrade Insider Cruise Awards were presented as part of the recent Seatrade Med conference in Barcelona, and representatives from the cruise operators presented Copenhagen Malmö Port with the Cruise Port of the Year 2014 award in competition with other ports including those in Istanbul and Tallinn.
”I am really delighted to receive this award. It is yet more evidence that our efforts to attract and retain cruise tourism have been successful, and that we are proceeding in the right direction,” says Arnt Møller Pedersen, COO Cruise & Ferries in CMP.
”It is a great tribute to the huge amount of work that our own staff and our many collaborative partners in the tourist industry have put into developing the port and Copenhagen as the leading cruise destination in Northern Europe and the Baltic. I am certain that our dedicated new cruise terminal at Ocean Quay has contributed to us receiving the award. The new and better facilities for both ships and cruise passengers have proved their worth already in their first season,” says Arnt Møller Pedersen.
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.
On 30 august this year, CMP  experienced the arrival of the largest number of passengers so far. Three large cruise liners – Royal Princess, Costa Luminosa and MSC Poesia – docked at Ocean Quay 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.
