The establishment of Fredericia as a cruise ship destination began in 2012, and with an ambitious development strategy, the city was quickly put on the global map of cruise ship destinations. In 2014, the city had its first call from one of the world's largest cruise lines, Royal Caribbean, and in the following years, the city has welcomed many different cruise lines with guests from all over the world. The ships calling at Fredericia vary from very small luxury ships with well-funded guests to English shipping lines with an audience from the older segment to German and American shipping lines.
Fredericia offers a large range of experiences for guests in all target groups. With its central location, its authenticity and history, favourable access conditions and a large area of world-famous tourist attractions such as H.C. Andersen's house, Royal Jelling, LEGOLAND® and several UNESCO attractions, the city offers a large choice appealing to the young as well as elder audience.
In 2019, Cruise Fredericia will beat its own record with 20 cruise calls and 25,000 cruise guests, and that increases our share of the total Danish cruise market.
