Nyborg becomes 30th port to join the Cruise Baltic network
Cruise Baltic has announced Nyborg in Denmark as the latest partner to join the network, bringing the total cruise destinations to 30. With Nyborg’s central location on Denmark’s main international waterway, the port offers an easy-to-reach destination for cruises in and out of the exciting Baltic:
“With the rapidly increasing number of cruise lines entering Danish waters for the Baltic, there is an equally increasing need for more available ports, in particular for slightly smaller cruise lines,” says Cruise Manager Line Tange of Associated Danish Ports.
Positioned on the eastern coastline of the central Danish island of Funen, Nyborg’s history as the legislative, royal and judicial centre of the Danish realm, dates back to the 12th century. In more modern times, its position on the Great Belt has been instrumental in maintaining Nyborg as an international deep-water port close to the deep-water route that connects the North Sea and the Baltic.
“Nyborg is ideally placed a mere 9 nautical miles from the deep-water route through the Great Belt. While it has not previously been a cruise destination, the local authorities and population look forward to welcoming cruises,” says Line Tange, adding that 2 cruise calls are already announced in 2020.
Cruise Baltic, with its 30 Baltic destinations, is the preferred partner for cruise lines operating in the Baltic Sea Region. Cruise Baltic is run as a network of partner destinations consisting of all major ports in the region. The network offers all cruise lines easy access, great service, high standards, and full integration between ports and cities throughout the region.
