New app helps passengers navigate Copenhagen
Thursday, July 21, 2022 - 12:55 by ce-press
Copenhagen Malmo Port (CMP) has developed a free interactive app - Cruise City - which is available for Apple iOS and Android.
After downloading the app, selecting the ship of arrival and areas of interest, passengers can access a personalised guide and interactive map with attractions, experiences, restaurants and events based on selected interests and time on shore.
As well enhancing the quality of the passenger experience, Cruise City also highlights sustainable and eco friendly choices, promoting the use of public transport, bicycles and walking. The app is continuously updated.
“Cruise City is built to view Copenhagen with the eyes of a cruise passenger, that struggles with limited time, city navigation and way too many possibilities to find the best choices of their stay.
“With Cruise City, CMP would like to meet cruise guests’ increasing demands for individualised experiences and to further better, greener and more sustainable interactions between the city and its visitors,” commented Henrik Ahlqvist, CMP’s sales director for cruise.
Cruise City is part of CMP’s ambition to be CO2 neutral by 2025.
