Oceania Marina - Europe Cruise Blog #8

This is the end of the line for this European cruise segment on Oceania Marina and luckily it's an overnight in Copenhagen, one of Europe's most elegant cities with a sail-in that's hard to beat. After sailing out of Honfleur and up through the North Sea we rounded the top of Denmark and turned into the Øresund with Sweden on one side and Denmark on the other and there's just a few kilometres between the two countries at Helsingor on the Danish coast and Helsingborg on the Swedish coast.

Copenhagen itself is an ancient maritime city and cruise ships dock on Langelinie which is becoming one of the most popular ports in Europe thanks to its great location. From here it's just a two minute walk to the Little Mermaid, one of Copenhagen's most photographed landmarks. This is one of those great walking cities and from the ship it was easy to hit up the city's other attractions including the Amalienborg Castle with its colourful changing of the guard, the bustling Nyahvn district which is a 17th century canal area which is now a bit of a restaurant and bar strip with its brightly coloured 17th and 18th century townhouses with historical wooden ships lining the waterfront.

Strøget is the pedestrian strip running through the centre of the city and is the longest pedestrian shopping street in Europe and this is where you can find the city's most famous stores, and most expensive ones as well, and it  connects the City Hall Square on one side of the city with Kongens Nytorv, the King's New Square, on the other.

This is the type of place you can spend days just wandering, but we only have they one day before heading home.

Our last blog will be a wrap up of the whole Oceania Marina and especially a look at the cuisine on board … quite superb and there will be photos, I promise!
