A day in Copenhagen

Trevor Smith on 05 August 2010
So, the last port of call on our Baltic adventure and our Fred Olsen Cruise on board the MS Balmoral, Copenhagen and almost a fleeting visit!

Arriving just after dawn, the ship berthed very near the centre of Copenhagen and our awaiting coaches were on the quayside to take us on our City Tour and Canal Cruise - a great way to do the city on the limited time there.

It was great to see so much in such a short time on our four hour sightseeing tour.

Many monuments scattered through the city of Copenhagen combined with the many bicycles made the drive thoroughly enjoyable.

Over two hundred guests from the ship was on this excursion and the canal cruise proved to be the highlight seeing the canals of Copenhagen and the quaint quayside painted houses together with the many house boats, restaurants and cafes.

Our small canal cruise boat took out into the main harbour for some great views of the various aspects of the port of Copenhagen with Military, commercial and of course the tourist element of the many cruise ships that visit Copenhagen through the year.

A great day in Copenhagen and of course the legendary "Sailaway" party on board the MS Balmoral made this a great end to the touring part of the itinerary.

Next stop, would of course be Dover after a full day at sea to finish with leisure time with new found friends, an opportunity to enjoy the boutique shopping on board and of course the final meals with our amazing ships staff.

My next cruise, will of course be with Fred Olsen and be back to Norway on a different cruise itinerary from the one done previously and with my group of family and friends from the past few years.

If you would like to do a cruise and have the peace of mind having me as your host then please get in contact at a time to suit you and perhaps your next cruise will be in my company and onboard the MS Braemar with Fred Olsen.
