Nyborg, part of Associated Danish Ports (ADP), has become the 30th member of Cruise Baltic, a Copenhagen-based port-town network promoting cruise tourism in the region.
"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," Line Tange, Cruise Manager, ADP, said.
She added, "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."
"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. […] For passengers arriving in Nyborg, there is much to experience. Apart from its stunning beauty, the town boasts some of Denmark's earliest national monuments. Nyborg also provides easy and quick access to the Funen capital Odense, the birthplace of Denmark's most famous author Hans Christian Andersen," a press release from Cruise Baltic highlighted.
Two cruise calls to Nyborg have already been announced for the 2020 season.
At the same time, the Port of Nyborg has also become part of CruiseCopenhagen, a B2B cruise network consisting of more than 60 local partners representing the Danish cruise industry.
