Cruise Ship Travel
Belfast is Ireland’s fastest-growing cruise destination and to cope with the influx of passengers is developing a new £7-million berth for cruise ships at Alexandra Dock, just a short walk from the major Titanic-themed attractions. A free shuttle bus runs from the port to the city center and drops you near the Visit Belfast Welcome Centre, where tourist information desks are staffed by multilingual travel advisors and city maps and brochures are available. At the dock there’s a marshaling area for coaches and taxis to bring visitors to the main sights. For tours of Belfast, the standard fare with Value Cabs, one of the main taxi companies, is £24 per hour with drivers providing an engaging commentary.
