Copenhagen gets new cruise terminal

05-10-2017 10:00:00


The Board of Copenhagen Malmö Port, CMP, has given the green light to build a new cruise terminal in Copenhagen. The terminal is placed in continuation of the existing Oceankaj in the outer Nordhavn and is capable of handling more than 5,000 passengers per arrival.

"With a new terminal, designed for more than 5,000 passengers, we will be able to receive more and larger vessels in the future. Through the establishment, we ensure that Copenhagen retains and enhances its position as the leading cruise destination in Northern Europe," said Barbara Scheel Agersnap, CEO of Copenhagen Malmö Port.

The prospects for the cruise industry are promising with ever-increasing demand. In order to meet the growing interest, CMP has estimated that the existing facilities will be expanded with a further terminal building, Terminal 4.

In 2017, 55 ships with more than 4,000 passengers aboard visited CMP and made so-called turn-arounds where the ships change passengers. In total, the number of passengers at the end of the season is 850,000.

The new cruise terminal is expected to open in 2020.
