Over recent years Fred. Olsen has made a strong point of their use of regional ports around the UK for passenger embarkation and departure. Their 2017/18 brochure has a page headed “Your local, global cruise line” with a map showing the 10 UK departure ports listed for cruises in that brochure – Southampton; Dover; Tilbury; […]

I’ve done a number of posts in the last few years about Liverpool’s cruise terminal. The earliest of these were about the dispute over financing when Liverpool City Council (who own and operate the terminal) announced their intention to start using it for turn-rounds as well as for day calls – the dispute was because […]

I contacted Liverpool City Council (who are the operators of the cruise terminal) to ask if they could furnish any more details. They sent me the full text of the press release, which I’ve given below. On timetables, the release says that the feasibility study work will be done during March 2016, it will be […]

A few months ago I did a couple of posts (here and here) about the cruise terminal at Liverpool.

Well done Liverpool! If that wasn’t enough, Angie Redhead (who I met a month or so ago) won the ‘Women in Shipping and Trade (WISTA) […]

Yesterday I posted about my visit to Liverpool Cruise terminal on Wednesday and focused on the terminal’s history and how it handles day calls. Today I’m going to focus on how the terminal handles cruise turnarounds, and about future plans for the terminal. Although the terminal was constructed for cruise day calls only, it was, […]

Yesterday I visited the Liverpool Cruise terminal. I was interested to learn how Liverpool has grown in recent years as a cruise destination, both for day calls and also for turnarounds, and about the new facilities that have been introduced to support turnaround operations.┬áThese days Liverpool is regularly receiving day calls by some very large […]

I’ve been following the saga of Liverpool’s efforts to be able to use their new cruise facilities for cruise turn-rounds. You’ll remember that because the facilities were publicly-funded (at least partly) and were specifically for day-calls by cruise ships, they were originally limited to just that type of use. Then Liverpool City Council repaid some […]

I’ve done a few posts in the past about the row going on between Liverpool and both the government and other ports, about using their new pier in the River Mersey for cruise turnarounds. The argument was due to the fact that although Liverpool had received significant cash assistance for the construction of the new […]
