Cruises from the UK

Cruises from the UK are incredibly popular, especially for those that want to avoid flying, and there is now a larger choice of embarkation ports than ever before. Thanks to this, it is now even easier to set sail on your next cruise from our wonderful British shores.

Many of the world’s best cruise lines offer voyages from the UK and sail to destinations throughout the world including the Mediterranean, Northern Europe, Adriatic, Caribbean, North America and the Canary Islands. You can even embark a World Cruise from the UK, circumnavigate the globe and then sail back into a British port for disembarkation.

Cruise lines offering UK roundtrip World Cruises include P&O Cruises and Cunard Line, but Fred Olsen, Oceania Cruises, Holland America Line, Regent Seven Seas Cruises and Silversea Cruises all also offer voyages that embark in UK ports.

Cruises from the UK range anywhere from 2-nights to 80-nights and beyond with frequent departures available from Southampton, Liverpool, Newcastle, Dover, Greenock, Belfast and Harwich.

Benefits of Cruising from the UK

Cruising directly from the UK has many benefits; the most obvious being that it removes the need to fly to meet your chosen ship. For those with a fear of flying or medical issues that prevent them from flying, a cruise directly from the UK really does open up a door to the world.

Cutting out the flight aspect of your cruise also means that you avoid the hassle of baggage reclaim, transfers and a potentially long flight – instead, you arrive at your UK port, wave goodbye to your bags and let your cruise holiday begin.

Embarking in the UK also means that you have no restrictions when it comes to the weight of your luggage. Technically, you can take as much as you can comfortably fit in your stateroom or suite!

Cruises from Liverpool

Liverpool Cruise Terminal is a brand new £19 million addition to the UK departure port list and it is one that has certainly put the spotlight on this incredible city, a city that was awarded the title of ‘European Capital of Culture’ in 2008. Links via the M1 and M6 provide easy access to the terminal, ideal for those travelling by car, and the city’s main train station is just a 5-minute taxi ride away.

Cruises from Liverpool offer a multitude of destinations and let you avoid the hassle of an airport – sail north to Iceland, head west and to the shores of Canada and North America, or follow the sunshine and head to the Mediterranean Sea.

The expansion of Liverpool’s port and Princess Dock is not only significant for the city at present, but it also reignites some incredible history as Liverpool was home to Cunard from 1840 until 1967.
