dramatic rise in cruises docking at Belfast

Not sure about the £9million prediction, but good news it seems. The Belfast Visitor and Convention Bureau and Port Of Belfast has announced that 23 cruise liners will dock at Belfast this summer with an estimated 30,000 passengers and crew. It’s not the Mountains of Mourne.. but there’s a lot of cheerful optimism in the report that it will encourage return visits.
