The history of the Liverpool cruise terminal
The Liverpool cruise terminal cost £19 million to complete and received funding from the UK Government to the tune of £9 million and £8.6 million from the European Regional Development Fund. As well as being able to accommodate cruise ships of up to 345 metres it is also temporarily home to Royal Navy ships which berth at the cruise terminal several times a year so the public can go aboard. The cruise terminal has been such a success that in 2013 the UK Government pledged a further £5.5 billion to the Liverpool Waters programme which will continue the regeneration of the city's docklands.
