Transportation to the new Copenhagen cruise pier at Oceankaj c330

We've been reading on cruise critic forums about considerable difficulties disembarking at Oceankaj c330, the new cruise port that some ships are using in Copenhagen. Rick Steves' Baltic cruise book (2013) unfortunately does not cover the new Oceankaj cruise pier.

We will be embarking on a Baltic cruise at Oceankaj c330 in mid June and wonder if anyone has had experience traveling to and boarding a ship at Oceankaj c330 in recent months. We are two seniors and would like to minimize the amount of walking with luggage to the ship. We will be staying at Hotel Bethel in Nyhavn and need a good way to get to our RCI ship at Oceankaj. Would a taxi be able to get close to the pier at Oceankaj? Or would the public bus #26 get closer to the Oceankaj terminal?

We just got off the TA in Copenhagen that used the new terminal. There still isn't a lot of info on it, but NCL did offer a shuttle to the airport and nearby the canal. The port just opened in early May, so not a lot of people have used this port terminal.

We also stayed at Bethel Hotel and it was wonderful. The staff was kind and very helpful, the room was basic but nice and comfortable as was the bed. We had no issue with any noise, but that was a weekday. The breakfast was lovely and we even enjoyed the eating area in the evening. You might hear the choir group practicing!

We took a taxi to Bethel. There were taxis right at the port, but this port is the farthest away from the city and the cost of the taxi was 190 DK. The driver quoted us 120 DK. Like you, we had a large suitcase each with another smaller bag and an unfamiliar city is a bit disconcerting. I did see some folks trekking with luggage to a bus that was quite a distance. We are also seniors and some things aren't worth saving a few bucks. We had just one day in Copenhagen and didn't want to wear ourselves out before we even started.

Check out cruisecritic.com and go to the ports in Northern Europe. Someone name "Danish Viking" gives advice on Copenhagen. The port opened while we were sailing so we didn't have a chance to get good, current advice.

BTW- the Netto boats for canal rides are just a few houses down from Bethel and they are about half the cost of the others.

Thanks, Donna. (Our book researchers won't get to Copenhagen until sometime in July.)
