Year's first cruise ships docks in Cardiff

Cardiff Bay

The first cruise liner of the summer sailing season has arrived in Cardiff Bay.

 

The 152.5 metre-long luxury Voyager moored at Queen Alexandra Dock on Monday for a two-day stopover in the city as part of a tour of the British Isles.

 

The ship, owned by Voyages of Discovery, offers 556 cabins over seven decks, and also features swimming pool, 4 bars, a beauty centre and a gym.

 

Passengers of the Voyager took shore excursions to explore Cardiff city centre as well as trips to 17th Century mansion Tredegar House in Newport.

 

Wales is currently hoping to secure European funding for the enhancement of Cardiff's port facilities so that the city can become a primary destination for future cruise operators. The Port of Cardiff currently has three berths approved for cruise liners.
