Denmark anticipates a record breaking number of cruise passengers in 2018, with eight ports expecting more than 1.1m guests this year.

To tap into the increasing interest, CruiseCopenhagen has arranged the first fam trip purely on Danish soil, with six cruise line executives from five brands going to eight different ports in Denmark, between June 7-15.

'To accommodate the increasing interest in the Danish cruise experience, we have organised a fam trip where representatives from the international cruise industry
will be visiting the Danish ports, experiencing first-hand what Denmark has to offer,' director of CruiseCopenhagen, Claus Bødker said.  

In a report on guest satisfaction from 2017, Copenhagen achieved impressive results as 97.1% of the cruise guests were very satisfied or satisfied with their visit to the North European destination.

The trip starts in Copengahen and ends in Skagen and makes it possible for the cruise line executives to experience the well-known port of Copenhagen but also a more hidden gem such as Hundested,' remarked Bødker.
