Cruising from the UK has much to offer when compared to a fly cruise, including no luggage restrictions, no worries about long delays at security or delayed flights. Your holiday starts as soon as you arrive at the docks, when your bags are taken from you and the next time you see them is in your cabin.
The main cruise ports in the UK where you can start and end your cruise are Southampton (with 4 terminals), Dover, Portsmouth, Newcastle, Liverpool, Harwich, Edinburgh and Tilbury. There are others which perhaps only a few cruises each year, and they include Hull, London Bridge and Oban. In addition there are a good few more which are used as a port of call, but not as a turnaround port, so you can’t start and end your cruise there. Follow the link for more details about the turnaround ports.
The cruise lines which operate cruises to and from UK ports include P&O Cruises, Cunard, Princess Cruises, Fred Olsen Cruise Lines, Cruise & Maritime Voyages, Crystal Cruises, Carnival (from 2013), Holland America Line, Voyages of Discovery, Celebrity Cruises, Hebridean Island Cruises, Swan Hellenic, Royal Caribbean International, Oceania Cruises, Regent Seven Seas and Silversea Cruises.
