With effect from March 15, 2023, Klaus Bondam is the new Director of Cruise Baltic and CruiseCopenhagen. Bringing new competences to the two cruise networks and knowledge of international politics, sustainability and culture, he will lead Cruise Baltic and CruiseCopenhagen, as they face the many opportunities and complex questions of the cruise industry.

“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.
