Arriving on a cruise ship to Copenhagen: Our buses greet every cruise ship that comes to the city. Our buses will be at the terminal when you arrive. As you disembark your ship, you will find our buses and staff ready to help you on board and into the city. When it’s time to go back to the ship, you simply need to hop off at the Little Mermaid (stop 12), and our shuttle bus will take you directly back to the cruise ship. The shuttle bus departs every 30 minutes from 11:00 am until 30 minutes before ship’s departure (max 4:30 pm).
