Crown Princess samples upgraded Belfast port

Date Posted: 30 Jun 2009

The Princess Cruises ship Crown Princess has been one of the first to pay a visit to Stormont Wharf in Belfast following an upgrade, the BBC reports.

Belfast Harbour Commissioners have spent £10 million on upgrading the length of the port to 1,040 metres, with the new wharf expected to allow larger vessels to dock at the port.

Some 3,100 passengers were on the Princess Cruises vessel as it docked at the port as part of a British Isles cruise, with around 40 ships carrying a combined 60,000 holidaymakers set to arrive this year.

Four deep water vessels will be able to berth simultaneously as part of the upgrade, with cruise trips believed to be worth £15 million to the local economy on an annual basis.

Pieter van der Schee, head of brand marketing at Princess Cruises, told the publication that trips around Britain were becoming increasingly popular.

He said: "With over 12,000 miles of dramatic coastline steeped in history, outstanding beauty and culture, it's no surprise that cruising around Britain is becoming an increasingly popular choice."

Meanwhile, earlier this year Princess Cruises increased its capacity on Mediterranean cruises following an increase in demand.ADNFCR-657-ID-19243654-ADNFCR

What our customers say

"I booked my first ever cruise on Tuesday 5th September 2017. After lengthy searching and much deliberation we booked through Iglu. So far, I am incredibly happy I booked with Iglu. This being our first cruise Debi proved very helpful. I was [also] very impressed with the level of assistance offered by Connie. She answered my questions and put my mind at rest. I am very impressed with all aspects of dealing with Iglu and I would like to take this opportunity to thank you for all your support. "

"Leighanne has been excellent dealing with my various queries this year. She has been kind and informative and obtained what i think is a good deal for me in October. She is persistent and very informative, so even when my 1st deal fell through I felt confident enough to approach her for this present Crystal cruise...”
