One of Denmark’s most popular cruise destinations and number 8 on The New York Post list of places to go in 2019, Aalborg, has decided to deliberately limit the port to a one ship port in the future.
The point is to give the full attention to the guests on each single cruise vessel and give them the best possible experience in Aalborg. In the last five years Aalborg, Denmark’s only inland cruise port, has grown to become one of the most popular cruise destinations in Denmark going from less than 1.000 in 2014 to 40.000 cruise guests a year in 2018. And the number will increase, since the growing city in northern Denmark have 34 calls in 2019 and no less than 45 calls in 2020.
Cruise Manager from the official tourism organization Visit Aalborg, Lars Bech says:
One ship in port at a time
Though Port of Aalborg can host several ships in port at the same time, the Aalborg cruise actors, Port of Aalborg and Visit Aalborg, have decided to take only one cruise ship in port at a time in the future.
Cruise Manager at Port of Aalborg, Michael Rosenkilde Lind says:
At the forefront
Aalborg, with no World Heritage sites, has a charm, a culture and a life style that is the envy of many. Once awarded the happiest city in Europe by the European Union and number 8 on The New York Post list of places to go in 2019, Aalborg can justly claim to be at the forefront. Not only for its innovative, forward thinking sightseeing tours for the cruise guests, but also its phoenix like regeneration of the former commercial waterfront to an architectural gem, which has brought new life to the city. And it is right here in the epicenter of the city, that cruise the guests will arrive, enjoy, and experience the best of Denmark.
