Liverpool plans 3,600 passenger cruise terminal





22 February 2016

Liverpool City Council has decided to appoint an advisor for evaluating its plans to build a permanent cruise terminal in the city. Cunard has shown interest in the project.

The council has identified a site on Princes Parade, at Princes Jetty, west of the spot of the current temporary facility, as the potential location for a cruise terminal which could handle turnarounds of vessels up to 3,600 passenger capacity.

The current temporary facility had a limit of 800 passengers, but was later expanded to 1,200 for turnarounds. It has handled non-turnaround calls by big vessels, such as Queen Mary 2, Britannia and Royal Princess.

According to Cunard Line director Angus Struthers: 

"Liverpool will forever be Cunard’s spiritual home, and, as the world witnessed with the Three Queens spectacular last May, the city’s pride in this association, and the level of interest in Cunard across the whole northwest of England, remains strong.”
Cunard celebrated its 175th anniversary in 2015 and all its three liners called at the port on a single day. Queen Mary 2 embarked a number of cruise passengers at Liverpool for New York and Boston to commemorate the first sailing of the line on July 4, 1840 by the paddle steamer Britannia. Struthers added:

"Though Southampton will remain Cunard's homeport, we look forward to working with Liverpool to see how we can develop a great experience for our guests. In particular, we will be looking at how we might be able to incorporate Liverpool into Queen Mary 2's iconic transatlantic crossings."
Unlike many cruise terminals, the Liverpool cruise terminal is within walking distance from the city centre. If the new terminal is built on the site under consideration, this would also remain the case with the new facility.
