Among the cruise liners making their Mersey debut in 2014 will be the new MS Europa 2, Ruby Princess and MSC Magnifica.

The high points of Liverpool Cruise Terminal’s fast-growing popularity were revealed at a conference organized by the Mersey Maritime Group trade body.

During the cruise terminal’s first full season of operation in 2008 there were just 13 calls, rising to 42 calls last year.

Another expanding market are ‘split- voyages’ – passengers can take shorter cruise to or from Liverpool on board Queen Mary 2, Queen Elizabeth & Celebrity Infinity.

Overnight stays are also increasing in popularity with The World making a return three-day visit next month whilst next May, Queen Victoria will over night as part of a special celebratory cruise to mark the centenary of Aquitania, widely considered one of the most attractive ships of her time, Aquitania earned the nickname “Ship Beautiful.”

Celebrity Infinity will stay overnight in Liverpool in July 2014 so passengers can visit The British Open Championship, at Royal Liverpool Golf Club.
