The Caribbean Princess in Helsingborg

The Caribben Princess "parked" in the Sound, between Helsingborg and  Helsingør  

Today there was an "invasion" of cruise visitors - more than 3000 - in Helsingborg. They arrived on board the huge Caribbean Princess (290 x 36m) which made a  stopover on its way from Copenhagen to Oslo.  Most of the visitors were American, many of them of Chinese origin. At least those I spoke with appeared to be pleased with their visit to Helsingborg, and the 7 day cruise in general. 

Some of the visitors also found the time to make a morning trip to Helsingør (Elsinore) in order to see Hamlet´s famous Kronborg castle. 

Copenhagen is of course the main destination for most cruise ships, but the "twin cities" Helsingborg and Helsingør also have a lot to offer, so let´s hope that more and more cruise ships find their way here ....

The Caribbean Princess was an imposing sight in the Sound
