Q: We don't want to carry our luggage around while exploring Copenhagen. Where can we storage our luggage?

A: Let Airluggage assist you! Airluggage offers cruise-guests to get their luggage transported from the cruise ship to their chosen destination in Copenhagen. They can also transport the luggage from the airport to the cruise ship - and from hotels and rented apartments in Copenhagen to the cruise ship. All luggage will be name tagged and tracked in a track and trace system. Customers will receive a notification by phone and e-mail when the luggage has been collected and again when it arrives at the Airluggage office. Airluggage is located in the middle of Copenhagen Airport, Terminal 2. Read more about Airluggage here.

Q: How far is the airport from the cruise ship terminals?

A: We have 3 cruise ship terminals in Copenhagen: Ocean Quay, Langelinie and Nordre Toldbod.
Distance from Ocean Quay to the airport: approx. 13 kilometers.
Distance from Langelinie to the airport: approx. 11 kilometers.
Distance from Nordre Toldbod to the airport: approx. 10 kilometers.

Q: How do I know which port my ship is arriving at?

A: You can check which port your ship is arriving at here. Please don't hesitate to contact us if you need help.

Q: Are there any public busses at the cruise terminals?

A: Yes. You can read more about the public transportation to and from the three cruise terminals here.

Q: Are taxis always available at the cruise terminals? Can you please recommend any taxi company to contact?

A: CruiseCopenhagen recommend the taxi companies Taxa 4x27 (Amager-Øbro Taxi) with telephone number +45 2727 2727 and Taxa 4x48 (Taxinord) with telephone number: +45 4848 4848. Normally there are taxis at the different cruise terminals but because of great activity at the quays, you must expect some waiting time.

Q: Can I walk from the cruise port to the City Center and the different attractions?

A: If you arrive at Langelinie or Nordre Toldbod with your cruise ship, you are fairly close to the City Center and close to e.g. the Little Mermaid. If you arrive at Ocean Quay we would advise you to take a taxi, public transport or the Cruiseshuttle bus to the City Center, as Ocean Quay is located further north from the City. For example, the distance from Ocean Quay to Nørreport Station (which is one of the most central train station in Copenhagen) is 6,5 kilometers and would take more than 1 hour to walk.


Q: I want to take a Hop on Hop off bus when I arrive with my cruise ship. Is this there a stop at the cruise ports? 

A: Yes, there is a stop at Langelinie port and another at the Little Mermaid, which is close to Nordre Toldbod. For prices, timetable and a map of the bus stops please read more here.
