Copenhagen Pre-Cruise Stay Highlights
Ancient mariners knew the waters of Øresund were full of mermaids. Growing up with this lore inspired Hans Christian Andersen to pen "The Little Mermaid" in 1836. The Little Mermaid statue was unveiled in 1909, tying lore and literature together and forever linking Copenhagen to these legendary creatures.
Enjoy a tour of Tivoli Gardens. With origins dating back to the mid-19th century, Tivoli Gardens is the second oldest amusement park in the world.
Walk the halls of Danish Royals and the setting for Shakespeare's Hamlet at Kronborg Castle. Known for both its fortified strength and sheer beauty, the castle occupies a strategic position on the Sound (Øresund separating Denmark and Sweden).
Explore this former medieval capital of Denmark. Nestled in the Danish countryside, Roskilde is home to many historical sites including the Viking Ship Museum—where Junior Adventurers will paint their own Viking shield.
