Copenhagen Port of the Year

Copenhagen Port of the Year

It’s no surprise that Princess Cruises has named Copenhagen their “Port of the Year” for 2009, a designation that comes from the result of passenger surveys. This designation is for turnaround ports – those where cruises begin and end – as opposed to a port of call.

The terminal at Copenhagen was due for improvements, but there are other great things to consider about departing from Copenhagen:
