Dover is the premier hub port for cruise lines in the South East of England; one of the busiest cruise ports in Britain and Northern Europe welcoming 250,000 discerning cruise passengers every year. Located just 76 miles east of London, Dover is England’s gateway to Europe. Driven by massive investment, Dover is one of the most modern and progressive cruise ports in the county, with highly trained personnel and award-winning customer service. Which is why it is the port of choice for over 25 individual cruise lines. With two impressive state-of-the-art terminals, Dover has the capacity to accommodate three ships at once and with the on-going development there is also the creation of a new multi-use berth raising Dover’s cruise capacity to 4 berths. It is also perfectly positioned for turnaround or port of call visits for Northern Europe, the Baltic, Eastern Mediterranean and USA, enabling you to offer a wide variety of itineraries, with excellent accommodation and historic attractions.
