Spotlight:  Copenhagen 

The Port of Copenhagen is the largest in the Baltic serving almost 850,000 cruise passengers annually from 150 nations out of four cruise terminals.  Denmark’s capital city opened a new pier in 2014 for international sailing cruise ships.  Ocean Quay’s long pier in the northern port known as Nordhavn is beneficial for today’s larger ships and allows for three vessels at one time.  The Langelinie Quay, located closer to Copenhagen’s center and established in 1894, is still used for cruise ships.  Also located near the city’s center is Nordre Toldbod while Freeport is close to Ocean Quay.  The largest ship which sails from Copenhagen is Royal Caribbean’s Independence of the Seas.
