From June 26, cruise passengers are allowed to go ashore in Denmark.

The authorities require that travellers have been vaccinated with an EMA accepted vaccine.

As the country further reopens its borders for tourism, there is finally good news about cruise tourism in Denmark. Danish authorities decided that from June 26, vaccinated cruisers are allowed to go ashore in the country without further restrictions. The requirement from the authorities is that all cruise passengers onboard have been vaccinated with an EMA-approved vaccine.

Denmark's reopening means that turnarounds are possible in Copenhagen, but the country's all 12 seaports will receive transit calls from June 26.

Claus Bodker, Director of CruiseCopenhagen, said:

“We look forward to finally welcoming cruise guests in Denmark again. The wait has been incredibly long, and, unfortunately, most of the 2021 cruise season has already passed. We had hoped that non-vaccinated cruise guests also were welcome in Denmark as only one of four in the EU have been vaccinated, but the authorities chose a very cautious restart. Hopefully it will not be too long before we can also welcome non-vaccinated cruise guest to Denmark.” 

Crew members are not allowed ashore yet unless they've been vaccinated. However, they can embark/disembark in Denmark and furthermore have to be tested prior to, during, and after the voyage.

At all destinations in Denmark, safety continues to be a top priority with a focus on proper hand hygiene and social distance while maintaining a good guest experience.
