Getting to Copenhagen

I loved visiting Copenhagen as part of our 7 day Baltic cruises with Royal Caribbean, while I worked on-board. If you decide to take the a cruise, there are now three docking areas. Discover which one you will be docked at to see what the best transport option to the city centre will be. Would you like to enjoy a cruise and visit more than Copenhagen? Why not join the ship Navigator of the Seas on an adventure exploring the Northern Delights.

Located by the waterside at Langelinie promenade is the bronze statue of the Little Mermaid. At 1.25 metres tall and weighs 175 kilograms. Take a leisurely 30 - 40 minute stroll from the city centre to see this iconic sculpture based on the character The Little Mermaid by Hans Christian Anderson.
The second oldest amusement park in the world - Tivoli Gardens is a must visit, with something for everyone. There is live music, a range of restaurants, cafes with both modern and nostalgic rides. The gardens are beautiful all year round, my favourite times are during autumn with the colourful and enchanting Halloween displays and then again in winter with magical Christmas displays.
