Cruise Information   

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 14), 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).

Embarking on a cruise ship from Copenhagen: If you are beginning your cruise ship adventure from Copenhagen, we offer a free shuttle service to the ship, included in your Red Buses ticket. You can ride our red line (the Mermaid tour) until stop 14 (the Little Mermaid) and there you will find our shuttle bus operating between 11:00 am and 4:30 pm, every 30 minutes.

Is baggage allowed on the bus? Yes of course. We have space on the ground floor for luggage. Our shuttle bus drops you off right next to the cruise ship, so you do not need to walk very far with your heavy luggage.
