Saturday 17 December 2016 – A busy cruise ship schedule for Liverpool in 2017

This year has been a busy year for Liverpool’s Cruise Liner Terminal, bringing in dozens of cruise ships, tens of thousands of passengers, and millions in revenue for the city. The coming year is set  to be just as promising for the city’s growing cruise ship industry. According to Cruise Liverpool’s preliminary 2017 schedule – which covers up to 14 October 2017, there are twenty-nine vessels due to visit the city on sixty-one occasions between them.  Four of these vessels will be making their inaugural call to Liverpool.  The ship Magellan was also due to make its inaugural call at Liverpool in June 2017, but ended up making it on the 9 August this year when the vessel was forced to take refuge in Liverpool from storms in the Irish Sea. She will be visiting Liverpool six times in 2017.  As you may know if you are a regular visitor to my blog or my YouTube channel, I photograph and video many of the cruise ships when they are in the Mersey and I will be continuing to do that next year, trying in particular to capture those ships I haven’t managed to photograph or video on previous visits to the city or those ships here for the first time.  Below is each of the cruise ships scheduled to visit Liverpool next year, with photographs sourced from the Internet.  I have also included links to previous blog entries on some of these ships. The schedule is preliminary and is subject to change.
