2013 cruise season shaping up to be best yet
Greenock Ocean Terminal today welcomed a return call of "Norwegian Sun" as the cruise season at the port begins to wind down.
There are more calls scheduled at the Terminal this year, with "Hebridean Princess" scheduled at Greenock four times in November. These calls, along with those which have already called this year, will mean that this cruise season has been the most successful in the Terminal’s history.
However this is set to be eclipsed in 2013 when a record 84,000 passengers are scheduled to call into the port. This represents a large growth in both vessel and passengers figures, with passenger numbers having doubled since 2009.
The vessels will be split between embarkation calls and day calls, and the Cruise Terminal is continually being redeveloped to ensure that both types of cruise calls are handled seamlessly.
Andrew Hemphill, General Manger of Greenock Ocean Terminal, said: “We are delighted that our continued hard work and development of the Terminal has resulted in another fantastic year at Greenock Ocean Terminal. With the release of the 2013 timetable today, we are looking forward to another great year at the Terminal.”
