Belfast: Best UK & British Isles Port of Call

Belfast: Best UK & British Isles Port of Call

Belfast is gearing up for another busy cruise season in 2024 with yet another award. Belfast has been recognised as the Best UK & British Isles Port of Call at the recent Cruise Critic UK Editors’ Picks Awards.

Cruise Critic®, a subsidiary of TripAdvisor, is the world’s leading cruise reviews site and online cruise community and each year it names the winners of its Editors’ Picks Awards, chosen by the site’s international team of cruise experts.

Guided by the Cruise Critic editorial team’s impartial cruise expertise – based on first-hand experiences and industry knowledge – the awards name the best-in-industry while also helping travelers select the best cruise for their specific interests and needs.

In 2023 the city welcomed 159 cruise calls from 57 ships from 32 different cruise lines. That was an 8% increase on the pre-pandemic record set in 2019.

2024 is shaping up to welcome a similar number of cruises and passengers. When the new season starts on 1st April you can check out the cruise schedule for the year ahead on Belfast Harbour’s Cruise Schedule page here.
