BE OUR GUEST – DISNEY ARE BACK WITH MAGIC ON THE MERSEY
Disney Magic is making a welcome return to Liverpool on 13th September at Princes Dock. She has 11 decks, holds 1754 passengers, 915 crew and is almost 1000ft in length.
The ships are among the most highly rated afloat. Don’t take our word for it come and see for yourself when Disney magic joins us at the iconic Liverpool Waters.
The annual arrival of the Disney Magic cruise ship has quickly become a star attraction for Princes Dock, which is owned and operated by Peel Land and Property as part of the Liverpool Waters project.
In true Liverpool style we’re showing Disney Magic a real Scouse welcome back when she makes her fourth visit to our wonderful World Heritage Waterfront.
Cruise traffic is up 40 percent in Liverpool this year, and looks to be up at least 20 percent again in 2020, according to Peter Murney, head of cruise and marine operations.
2019 will see 86 calls, according to the port’s schedule. Visiting vessels can look forward to berthing in the heart of the city, steps from Liverpool’s notable UNESCO World Heritage waterfront.
“We strive to exceed passenger expectations at every stage of their journey. We change perceptions by ensuring guests experience Liverpool as the modern, thriving, dynamic, cosmopolitan destination we know it to be,” Murney said.
“One of our challenges is that the berth is on a floating pontoon with a 10 meter tidal range so at times pedestrian access bridges can be very steep,” Murney explained. “We overcome this by providing mobility buses that transport guests direct from gangway to passenger lounge and back.”
Among the goals is to build the port’s turnaround business, as a new cruise terminal will be open and operational for the 2022 season.
