Cruise Ship Calls at Dover

I called in at Dover Port to see how well cruise ships at handled in harbour. It was great to visit the cruise ship and see the state of the art facilities on offer. Accompanied by James Ryeland of ship service company George Hammond PLC, I toured the ship to see the facilities on offer and take in the incredible view across the Port.

The cruise industry is a growing part of our local economy. Cruise calls bring tourists to our town and provide more jobs and money in servicing and visits. The best view to be had of Dover is from the Western arm of the harbour. It was great to appreciate Dover in all its glory and underlines how the whole area could be developed into a really special place.
