Nyborg is a new danish cruise destination
The Port of Nyborg is part of the port company, Associated Danish Ports A/S (ADP) which owns and operates the danish ports of Fredericia, Nyborg and Middelfart. Since 2012, ADP has developed Fredericia as an attractive cruise destination in the Baltic Region. Cruise Fredericia now expands with a new cruise destination in the “sister” port of Nyborg.
Centrally located in Denmark - on the east coast of the island of Funen - the town of Nyborg is ready to welcome cruise ships. The first cruise ship called the Port of Nyborg in May 2016, where the ship MV Braemar from the cruise line company Fred Olsen had a mystery call.
In the summer of 2020 the cruise ship MS Berlin from the cruise line company FTI Cruises will call Nyborg two times.
The cruise destination of Nyborg make up part of ADPs portfolio of cruise destinations, and will be announced on this year’s Seatrade Europe in Hamburg. “I am looking forward to selling both Fredericia and Nyborg to the international cruise lines during the Seatrade fair. The two cruise destinations complement each other and will strengthen our position”, says Line Tange, Cruise Manager at ADP A/S.
