New terminal to open in Southampton

Date Posted: 07 May 2009
Category:
A new £19 million terminal is to open in Southampton on Saturday (May 9th), it has been revealed.

The new facility will be the first purpose-built cruise terminal to be built in the UK for almost four decades and will see around 4,000 passengers through it every day, reports TravelMole.

Priority use of the terminal will go to Carnival Cruises brands such as Princess Cruises and Ocean Village.

In related news, a new cruise terminal has opened in the US city of Seattle, news which may of interest to those intending to book a holiday to North America.

Writing in the Telegraph, travel journalist Jane Archer insists there has never been a better time to embark on a cruise holiday, following new figures which showed the number of Britons sailing off on such breaks increased by 11 per cent last year.

She advises: "When budgeting for a cruise, remember that you will have to pay for drinks - they are included only on the ultra-luxury lines such as Silversea, Regent and Seven Seas Cruises."

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...”
