From June 26, cruise passengers and crew vaccinated with a European Medicines Agency (EMA)-approved vaccine will be permitted ashore in Denmark under new rules set by Danish authorities.

Comes as the cruise season in Denmark is almost over

‘The wait has been incredibly long, and, unfortunately, most of the 2021 cruise season has already passed,’ said Claus Bødker, director, CruiseCopenhagen. ‘We had hoped that non-vaccinated cruise guests would also be welcome in Denmark… one in four in the EU have been vaccinated, but the authorities chose a very cautious restart.

‘Hopefully it will not be too long before we can also welcome non-vaccinated cruise passengers to Denmark.’

Vaccinated crew allowed ashore

Crew members who have been vaccinated will also be allowed ashore, however, all crew can embark and disembark. 

Testing of crew will take place before, during and after sailings.

Turnarounds resume

Turnarounds will now be possible in Copenhagen; all 12 ports across the country will be ready to receive transit calls from June 26.
