Denmark is all set to welcome cruise guests from Saturday. The Danish authorities require that guests be vaccinated with two doses of a European Medicines Agency (EMA) accepted vaccine. The reopening means that turnarounds are now possible in Copenhagen, but all 12 ports across the country will be ready to receive transit calls from June 26.
From the top of Denmark in idyllic Skagen to the port of Ronne on the scenic island Bornholm. Unfortunately, crew members are not yet allowed ashore unless they have been vaccinated as well. However, they will be allowed to embark and disembark in Denmark. They furthermore have to be tested before, during and after the cruise.
Claus Bodker, Director, Cruise Copenhagen said in a statement that authorities are looking forward to finally welcoming cruise guests in Denmark again. He mentioned that the wait has been incredibly long, and, unfortunately, most of the 2021 cruise season has already passed.
He shared that it was initially hoped that non-vaccinated cruise guests were also welcome in Denmark as only one of four in the EU have been vaccinated, but the authorities chose a very cautious restart. He hopes that it will not be too long before non-vaccinated cruise guest are also welcomed to Denmark.
