£1.5 million boost to Liverpool's economy

ALL ABOARD: Liverpool’s Cruise Terminal celebrates 10 years this month

AS CRUISE ship season commences, Liverpool will see thousands pass through the city, 10 years after launching its own Cruise Terminal; which has been a boost to the local economy and in keeping with its trading past.
Roughly 20,000 passengers and crew will be welcomed at the terminal and estimates pinpoint the monetary value to the port at £1.5 million.

In celebration of the Cruise Terminal’s success, locals and tourists alike are invited to take part in various events staged to mark 10 years of the terminal. The programme is called A Decade Making Waves and will host quayside concerts to name a few; starting on 5 June and lasting two weeks.
Liverpool is already set for a record breaking year in 2017 as 63 cruise ships are scheduled to arrive, bringing with them over 111,000 international visitors and crew to the city.
Peter Murney, Liverpool’s Cruise and Operations Manager, said:

“What better way to launch our 10th year than with a record-breaking start to a record-breaking season.
“The near non-stop schedule of arrivals will certainly invoke memories of the Mersey’s maritime hey-day and with these special concerts we aim to give everyone a reason to celebrate the arrivals of these very special visitors to our river.”
