CMP’s passenger traffic comprises daily ferry services between Denmark and Norway and also between Sweden and Germany. During 2012 this traffic comprised some 780,000 passengers and was thus largely unchanged year-on-year.

The largest and most popular route is Copenhagen-Oslo, which is operated by DFDS Seaways, one of Europe’s leading ferry companies. Roughly 719,000 passengers travelled between the two Nordic capitals in 2012. The ferries Crown Seaways and Pearl Seaways service the route, offering a wide range of food, shopping and entertainment. Crown Seaways was modernised during 2012, which means that both ferries have been upgraded during the last two years. The number of passengers on the Malmö-Travemünde route amounted to about 63,000 which was a slight increase year-on-year. Passenger traffic in Malmö has access to a new terminal building, which was put into operation when Northern Harbour was opened in autumn 2011. The move to Northern Harbour and its modern facility has significantly improved the infrastructure for ferry traffic between Malmö and Travemünde.
