travel advice from copenhagen airport to cruise terminal

hi there,

we are excited to visit scandanavian cities on a cruise in July, starting from copenhagen.

I am however bit concerned about not making it to the cruise terminal in time. Our flight reaches Copenhagen airport at 1340hrs and the Norwegian cruise leaves by 1630hrs. Have we got enough time? what are the means of transport? are there many cruise terminals, if so which terminal would Norwegian cruise liner depart from?

any help would be greatly appreciated.

Norwegian Star docks at either Sund Pier or Orient Pier in Copenhagen Freeport- depending on the date.

Public transport: Metro from the airport to Norreport or train to Central Station - then S-train to Nordhavn Station and finally approx. 1,200 m to the pier takes approx. 45 mins.

A taxi will cost approx. DKK 300-330 and take approx. 25 mins.

If you have large bags a taxi would be a good choice even though it is more expensive but the price is for two people. The price listed above is typical. And the taxis take credit cards so you will not need any local currency. You should have plenty of time. This is a wonderful cruise

No, the taxi fare is for maximum 4 persons.

Well it's for as many that will fit in the cab. You are not charged per person is the point.

That is not quite correct.

A 'normal' taxi will take maximum 4 persons. The so-called 'big' taxis (more expensive) will take 5-8 persons.

We're in the same situation. Does anyone know usually how long it takes to pass the customs?

Thanks.

Normally it takes 3-5 seconds to pass through customs in Europe, depending on the speed you walk.
