A 90-second fly-through video of Liverpool’s new cruise terminal has been released. The short video showcases the proposed terminal’s state of the art passenger and baggage facility, complete with security checking and customs areas, lounge, café, toilets, taxi rank, coach and car passenger drop off and pick up point, short-term car park and a four-star hotel.
The terminal will be constructed at the Princes Jetty Site along Princes Parade at Princes Dock in Liverpool Waters. It will be the size of two football pitches, serviced by an off-site multi-storey car park and designed over two floors with the baggage hall in the ground floor and the passenger lounge, café and check in on the first floor. Cruise ships up to 3,600 passengers will be able to embark and disembark here.
The fly-through video also shows how it will be connected to the existing cruise ship landing stage by a vehicular and passenger link-span bridge and walkway.
This year Liverpool has welcomed more than 60 vessels, with 100,000 passengers and crew and the city’s council want to create a state of the art facility to cater for Liverpool’s growing appeal in the cruise industry.
