Cruise season in Skagen is cut short

28-09-2018 10:00:00

The Port of Skagen has experienced the best cruise season in its history, but it has been cut short. This last cruise ship arrival of the season should have occurred on Sunday, where Viking Sky from shipping company Viking Cruises was going to visit the harbour. Unfortunately, the shipping company has canceled its stop in Skagen due to the weather forecast promising strong winds.

Instead, the ship will attempt to stop at the Port of Aalborg. The cruise ship also had to cancel stops in numerous harbours last week because of heavy winds. The Port of Skagen is not the only one affected by the early autumn storms.

Thus, the cruise season will end today, as the smaller cruise ship Northern Star arrives at dock 14.

The Port of Skagen’s cruise season for 2019 already starts on April 2, where Viking Sky will make an arrival. There are currently 40 ships of ships registered with a total of 69,000 passengers next year. Thus, the season might end up setting a new record season for Denmark's northernmost cruise ship harbour.

Approximately 69.000 international guests spread over 43 cruise arrivals have made it to Skagen during this years cruise season that began on May 3. That’s 27.000 guests more than last year, and double the number of guests in 2016.
