“I am looking very much forward to being part of Cruise Baltic and CruiseCopenhagen.

We have a lot to show the world, and I will take great pride in promoting our region internationally and strengthening the cooperation even further together with all the partners in the networks,” says Klaus Bondam, new Director of Cruise Baltic and CruiseCopenhagen.
