Liverpool Cruise Terminal

Few Cities in the world have arrival points in the heart of the city; Sydney, New York, Venice and Liverpool.

Liverpool Cruise Terminal has earned a reputation as one of the most desirable cruise destinations in Europe. We are centrally placed in the Irish Sea and so are an ideal starting point for North European and Norwegian Fjord cruises; Liverpool is an efficient, friendly and convenient UK departure point.

Our city is rich in maritime heritage and was the birthplace of the first passenger cruise line. Since the cruise terminal opened in 2007, the port has renewed its links with the great ocean liners of the world; Queen Mary 2, has since graced the river Mersey on numerous occasions.

From technical planning to practical support, a team of highly qualified people deliver a professional and excellent service to every visiting cruise ship. World class hospitality has ensured Liverpool is a firm favourite with international passengers – Cruise Critic awarded Liverpool the ‘Best UK Port of Call’ three times in the last four years and Seatrade crowned Liverpool ‘Destination of the Year’.


During the 19th Century the Port of Liverpool was the world’s busiest and wealthiest port; over 9,000,000 people emigrated from the city to North America.

The city has experienced a remarkable cultural and economic renaissance. There has been an unprecedented level of public and private sector investment that has transformed the city centre, delivering new cultural assets, shopping venues and transport infrastructure – Rough Guide stated we were in the Top 3 cities in the World to visit.

Liverpool is an amazing paradox, it is a city bursting with energy and passion to be explored and enjoyed – not forgetting its inhabitants who are famously friendly and will welcome you with pride.
