transport from city center Copenhagen to Oceankaj cruise port

We will be taking the Princess cruise leaving from Copenhagen in May. We will spend a night at the city center by Tivoli. Rick Steve recommends taking bus #26 that goes straight from the city center to Frihavnen. Our cruise ship will be docked there at Oceankaj, which is the farthest dock from where the bus stop is. I wonder if there is a port shuttle that will take passengers to this quay? If not, does anyone know how close can a taxi get to the appropriate cruise quay?

Sorry, we have no concrete info beyond what's in the Northern European Cruise Ports book. When I have landed at other large ports (Athens, Livorno), port shuttle buses and/or taxis were pretty easy to find. Note that the bus #26 does not run on Saturdays or Sundays.

We also took a Princess cruise out of Copenhagen.

I didn't see a port shuttle. We took a Metro from Kongens Nytorv one stop, transferred to a train north, got off at the closest train station, then walked from there. From the gate, there are lines painted on the ground that represent the walking route (may have also been painted footprints in places) to the ships.

We walked in, dropped off our bags (a carry-on each) and checked in, got something to eat on the ship, walked back and took the train downtown to see a couple more sights before we needed to get back to the ship (all free with our Copenhagen Card).

It's a long walk from the train, but you can see your ship so you're not likely to get lost. If walking is an issue or you're bringing a lot of luggage, a taxi might be your best bet.

Oceankaj is the new pier that will be opened on May 2nd----during the week you can take the bus #26 to or from the pier---the current stop on the bus planner would be Unicef Faergehan Nord---although the bus will go on to the pier. As far as weekends nothing has been worked out yet. Taxis and Hop on hop busses will be available but no word yet as to Port Authority or City public transportation. You might check with Princess to see if they have anything planned. The bus (26) runs from the bus stop at Vesterbrogade---by the main train station hourly at :02 and :22

hope this helps
