  • The Three Graces are lovely buildings but the weather was windy, wet and cold so probably did not appreciate this area as much as I would have if it had been in the summer.  more »
  • The pier head is the beginning or end of the visit by Albert Dock. Depends of course of which direction it comes.

  • A nice terminal in the middle of the city. Because this terminal is in the heart of the city, it is very easy to walk off a ship and easily make it to where ever your destination maybe.
  • Helpful staff, great start to a cruise experience!
  • This is a wonderful place to stop as part of a cruise. If you don't fancy the main tourist attractions it is possible to go for a short walk to explore some of the north docks which are only now being regenerated and make up the world heritage site. We headed north along Priness Parade, then followed the historic dock wall up to Stanley Dock. Once there the luxurious Titanic hotel provides a great water side location for drinks and food. This is definitely a departure from the well worn routes but an adventure well worth taking.
  • It is a nice place, securing all types of large vessels including war
