4 surprising UK ports you can cruise from

05 Jan 2018

When you think of taking a cruise from the UK, Southampton will likely be the first port you think of, but did you know there are several more UK cruise ports which may be closer to home which you might not have considered.


Located on the south coast, Poole is a town just outside Bournemouth. While it’s location is not far from Southampton, the cruise capital of the UK, Poole offers a stunning sail away as your ship squeezes through the narrow channel at Sand Banks, which is lined with luxury mansions. Cruise & Maritime Voyages Astoria will begin sailing from the port this year and will also return in 2019, offering cruises around the British Isles, to the Norwegian Fjords, Iceland, and the Baltic.


Convenient for those living in Yorkshire, Lincolnshire, and the Midlands, Cruise & Maritime Voyages offers discovery cruises aboard Marco Polo around the British Isles and to Norway, the Baltic, Arctic and Greenland.


For those in Scotland, travelling all the way down to Southampton can be a nightmare trek. Conveniently, Cruise & Maritime Voyages offers a selection of cruises from Dundee to the Faroes, Iceland, British Isles, the Baltic, and the magnificent Norwegian Fjords aboard Magellan.


The only cruise departure port in Wales, Cruise & Maritime Voyages offers a few sailings each year to Iceland, Ireland, and France aboard Marco Polo.

There are lots of other UK ports too from which you can embark on a cruise. Have you thought about Bristol, Portsmouth, Dover, London, Newcastle, or Liverpool to name just a few? Speak to our friendly sales team today on 0800 368 9059 to discuss convenient cruise options to suit you.
