First cruise ship finds its way to Newport

Date Posted: 14 Jul 2009

The Welsh city of Newport recently witnessed its first cruise docking as the Holland America line brought a ship to the area.

Around 800 passengers were on board the ms Prisendam vessel, which is on a cruise around Britain, when it sailed into Newport Docks, the latest in a host of luxury cruise liners heading to Wales.

As part of the 14-day cruise experience, passengers will also get to take in sights in Greenwich, Belfast, Dublin and the Isle of Skye.

Matthew Kennerley, port director at operator Associated British Ports, told the BBC: "While cruise ships are no strangers to some of our other Welsh ports, such as Cardiff and Swansea, we are very pleased that Newport is handling a cruise ship for the first time.

"I hope that all of Prinsendam's passengers enjoy their visit to the region."

As well as allowing holidaymakers to travel on cruise breaks around Europe, Holland America also sails ship to destinations including Alaska, New Zealand and the Caribbean.

Among the vessels that holidaymakers have the choice from are Ms Zuiderdam and Ms Statendam.
