Destinations and ports
Please bear with us as this area is expanded to include as many destinations and ports as possible.
We are aiming to answer as many questions and pass on some interesting information such as:-
Where can we go?
This is where we aim to provide some interesting points about the ports you are visiting and provide a few suggestions of local interest that you may wish to take a look at in advance of your cruise holiday.
Will the ship dock close to the city?
Owing to the fact that every port around the world is slightly different, the position of a cruise ship in relation to the city or places of interest can vary. A classic example of this would be the Croatian city of Dubrovnic. This city which is on the UNESCO list of World Heritage Sites, does not have a cruise terminal. The cruise terminal and port, including the yacht marina is around the headland, but by road is around 2 1/2 miles away.
There are plenty of local taxi cabs and most cruise ships will arrange shuttle buses but it is something to be aware of. Locally to the port, the places to look at are minimal, with the port being reasonably industrial, there are a few bars and a chance to view the huge bridge but this is almost it. It is possible to walk to the old city, but the roads can be uneven and traffic can be fast.
It is this sort of information that could prove invaluable, especially as our information is from personal experiences either by our team or from friends or submissions from other people who have cruised.
If you have any information on a port or destination, and would like to share it, please email me at the following address:-
