The UK port of Dover will see six inaugural calls, increased and regular visits from many cruise lines, and days with three ships in simultaneously this year.

Over 20 different cruises lines will offer voyages via Dover, including visits to the  Norway’s fjords, the Baltic, and around the UK.

Peter Wright, Port of Dover’s Head of Cruise, said: “There is no doubt that 2024 will be an unforgettable year for us. We eagerly await the return of all our cruise lines and can’t wait to welcome those that are visiting us for the first time.

“The stunning view of the White Cliffs and Dover Castle is a highlight of any cruise, and our excellent customer service and unrivalled location ensures a seamless and unforgettable holiday for all,” he claimed.

Dover provides the quickest route to London, taking just over an hour on a high-speed train line. With easy access to the motorway and the quickest sea crossing to Europe, it offers excellent transport links across Kent, into the UK’s Capital and beyond.

Clare Ward, Director of Product and Customer Service at Fred.Olsen Cruise Lines, said: “We are delighted to be returning to Dover once again, with five cruises setting sail to beautiful destinations including Norway, Iceland, Portugal and the Azores this summer.

“The beautiful White Cliffs of Dover provide a stunning backdrop for our guests, as they begin their cruises on board our fleet of smaller-sized ships and featuring hand-crafted itineraries designed to take them to the very best places at the very best times,” she said.
