Cruise terminals in Bristol and Newport have made it easier than ever for passengers from the south and south-western regions of the UK to embark on a holiday across the seas. 2017, however, has seen a new addition to the list of UK cruise ports, with passengers now able to sail from Cardiff.
The Welsh capital has historically been regarded as a highly industrial city, but recent decades have seen rapid regeneration that has helped transform Cardiff into a modern, cosmopolitan centre. It has much to offer visitors, including the 19th-century Cardiff Castle, the 21st century Wales Millennium Centre and the picturesque Bute Park. It is also known for being the greenest city in the UK, with more green space per person than anywhere else in the country.
Cruises depart from Queen Alexandria Dock and getting to Cardiff is very easy by car. Simply drive along the M4 and enter the city from junction 33, if travelling eastward, or junction 29 if travelling westward. Follow the respective signs to docks and enter from either the West or East gates, where a security guard will guide you the rest of the way to the terminal.
If travelling by train, you will want to head to Cardiff Bay station, which is a short taxi journey from the docks; while Cardiff Airport is only a 30-minute drive away. It is also possible to catch a coach to Cardiff city centre, with a large station located by Sophia Gardens.
2017 will see Cruise and Maritime Voyages offer two itineraries out of Cardiff, with three more already pencilled in for 2018.
