Copenhagen: ‘Hassle Free’ Still Applies?

In view of what happened in Copenhagen this weekend, and the understandable security fears fueled by murder, you have to wonder what impact the events will have on the little bit of good news for cruisers going to Denmark.

This month, travel officials in the Danish capital announced it would now be possible for people to say good-bye to their luggage before disembarking from a cruise ship and not Copenhagensee it again until arriving at Copenhagen Airport. There is a fee for doing this, of course, and passengers have to be booked on outgoing flights to qualify.

“This offers ‘hassle-free’ travel for our cruise passengers, enhancing their cruise experience on arrival in Copenhagen,” says Claus Bodker, Cruise Copenhagen network director. “Though already operational in the U.S., I believe Copenhagen is Europe’s first airport to provide such a travel service of convenience.”

The decision followed trial runs with Princess, Holland America and Scandinavian Airlines.

Maybe the decision will stand. People pay. Trusted handlers pick up and deliver bags. Either cruise lines or airlines accept responsibility for baggage moving from the port to the airport. However, terrorism in a country now on “high alert” has a way of destroying even the best ideas, doesn’t it?
