All 12 cruise ports across Denmark will be ready to receive transit calls from the reopening date

Denmark is to reopen for cruise calls from 26 June and all guests that have been inoculated with a vaccine approved by the European Medical Association will be allowed to go onshore without any further restrictions.

Turnarounds are currently possible in Copenhagen, but all 12 cruise ports across the country will be ready to receive transit calls from the reopening date.

“We look forward to finally welcoming cruise guests in Denmark again,” said Claus Bødker, director of CruiseCopenhagen. “The wait has been incredibly long, and, unfortunately, most of the 2021 cruise season has already passed. We had hoped that non-vaccinated cruise guests also were welcome in Denmark as only one of 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 guest to Denmark.”

Crew members will only be allowed onshore if they have also been vaccinated. However, they can embark and disembark in Denmark if they are tested before, during and after the cruise.
