The city of Nyborg has become the 30th member of the Cruise Baltic network and has also joined CruiseCopenhagen, a business-to-business network comprising more than 60 partners in the Danish cruise industry.
Located on the eastern coastline of the central Danish island of Funen, Nyborg is an international deep-water port that is just nine nautical miles from the ‘Great Belt’ deep-water route which connects the North Sea and the Baltic. The city has not previously been a cruise destination, but it has secured two cruise calls for 2020.
“With the rapidly increasing number of cruise lines entering Danish waters for the Baltic, there is an equally increasing need for more available ports, in particular for slightly smaller cruise lines,” said Line Tange, cruise manager of Associated Danish Ports.
Nyborg offers multiple shore excursion possibilities for cruise guests, including the opportunity to visit areas of natural beauty and see some of Denmark’s earliest national monuments. Nyborg is also within quick and easy access to the Funen capital Odense, which is the birthplace of Danish author Hans Christian Andersen.
“Nyborg and its surrounding area has so much to offer for cruise lines and their guests, and Cruise Baltic is thrilled to welcome them to the network,” said Claus Bødker, director of Cruise Baltic and CruiseCopenhagen. “As with all of our other 29 destinations – be they in Denmark, Sweden, Norway, Finland, Estonia, Lithuania, Germany or Poland – we have in Nyborg an exciting and service-oriented port that complements the other Baltic destinations well.”
