Cruise ports of Denmark

Denmark is the gateway to Scandinavia, the whole northern part of Europe, and the Baltic Sea.
There are 12 main cruise ports in Denmark, including Copenhagen, one of the largest, most advanced, and preferred turnaround ports in northern Europe. Among the other 11 ports, you will find some genuinely unknown cruise destinations and hidden gems in the Baltic Sea. These are the transit ports Roenne (Bornholm), Aarhus, Skagen, Aalborg, Fredericia, Helsingor (Elsinore), Kolding, Kalundborg, Nyborg, Hundested and Soenderborg.


Denmark is a proud maritime nation that goes all the way back to the Vikings. Today, Denmark operates the World’s 5th largest merchant fleet, which is reflected in our high-performing, advanced port facilities, fresh water, and waste services across Denmark's ports.

Denmark has a significant focus on sustainable shore excursions and high-quality service available for cruise guests and crew in all ports. Due to the small size of Denmark, there are short distances between the Danish ports.
