The City of London will get a huge boost in terms of visitors from 2017 thanks to the new London Cruise Terminal. Cruise ships currently have to sail into the likes of Southampton and Dover, which means passengers then have to travel the rest of the way by coach or train in order to visit the Capital.
Following this news people are now awaiting to learn news of the Fred Olsen 2017 cruises that will call into the London Cruise Terminal. Not only that, but this will also make a huge difference to the Fred Olsen excursions, seeing as though passengers will be able to get to all those wonderful sights, as they are close to Greenwich.
It’s not only Fred Olsen that will benefit from the new London Cruise Terminal, but also many of the other cruise lines that have ships that fall into the correct dimensions. Ships that sail to the new terminal on the River Thames at Greenwich cannot be longer than 230 metres (754 feet) in length and carry no more than 1,600 passengers.
This means the likes of Regent Seven Seas Voyager, Ocean Cruises and also Hapag Lloyd will all have ships that can sail up the Thames.
