Hi Nancy...boy, sounds like you are going a lot of the same places I am! Copenhagen...be sure to see the Christiansborg Palace, i've heard it is beautiful, there is a castle there as well called Fredericksborg Castle. I'm doing the Copenhagen and Christianborg palace tour from my ship...i'm looking forward to it!

Okay, another Copenhagen question: Since I will be overnighting, it has been recommended that I check out Scala (a restaruant and shopping complex) at night. Anyone know if this is a good suggestion or anything about the complex?

The Queen's Palace Complex is very interesting but Fredericksbourg is not to be missed. It is a 30 minute train ride from Copenhagen's main train station. Also, a canal ride of Copenhagen (the canal boats are boarded in the Nyhaven section of Copenhagen) is highly recommended as is Tivoli (there is a Hard Rock Cafe adjacent to Tivoli and ask for a table that overlooks Tivoli). However, while Tivoli is very charming and old, Tivoli is not comparable to Disneyland in terms of scale, charm, things to do and so on. Tivoli can be seen at night. There is a fascinating museum that honors the Danish Resistance in Churchillian Park, not far from the cruise ship terminal, that is well worth a look if you are interested in history.
There is a McDonald's in Copenhagen's main train station.
