THE Port of Tilbury recently welcomed the cruise liner, Nautica on July 4th for a patriotic turnaround of mainly American passengers.
On the American national holiday, 620 passengers disembarked at the London Cruise Terminal after their luxurious cruise. Some guests flew home after their relaxing holiday, whilst many others chose to extend their stay in London to take advantage of the glorious weather.
Throughout the afternoon, 600 American guests arrived at the Port to begin their Scandinavian cruise, which calls at Denmark, Norway, Sweden and Russia.
The glamorous Nautica offers its passengers a luxurious cruise experience with fine dining and leisure facilities on-board. Oceania’s Nautica sails the world over, with cruises around Africa, Asia and Europe.
Richard Exley, Marine & Cruise Manager at Port of Tilbury London said: “Since handling its first passenger vessel in 1930, the historic Grade II* London Cruise Terminal is currently undergoing an extensive refurbishment programme.
Situated only 22 miles downstream of Central London and within 60 minutes drive from all the London airports, the Terminal is now emerging as both an attractive destination and home Port – truly the Quay to the Capital”.
