The lovely port of Copenhagen welcomes many cruise ships during the summer months, and it is a favourite port for Fred. Olsen Cruise Lines, on many of their Baltic and Scandinavian itineraries.
This year, for the first time ever, no fewer than three of the Fred. Olsen fleet will all be docking in the port, on the same day – Wednesday 12th June.
The three ships are all approaching from different regional departure ports around the UK; Black Watch is operating an ‘Undiscovered Lapland & St. Petersburg’ cruise of 17 nights from Harwich, Braemar has a ‘Scandinavia & St. Petersburg’ cruise of 12 nights from Dover and Boudicca is on a ‘Scandinavian Capitals & St. Petersburg’ itinerary from Greenock (Glasgow).
Each ship is due to spend a full day in Copenhagen, allowing guests to explore this beautiful city and visit the magical Tivoli Gardens, the colourful Nyhavn waterfront, with its gabled houses and outdoor restaurants, or Stroeget, a wonderful, pedestrianised shopping district. Another highlight is the charming statue of Hans Christian Andersen’s ‘Little Mermaid.’
Nathan Philpot, Sales and Marketing Director of Fred. Olsen Cruise Lines, said: ‘Copenhagen is a great favourite with many of our guests, with its many attractions, and we always receive a warm and friendly welcome. Wednesday 12th June 2013 will be a very special day for us, with three of our fleet all docking there together, and we know all our guests will have a wonderful day ashore in this very special city.’
Fred. Olsen Cruise Line operates in the UK with four intimately sized ships for a more personal cruising experience.
