Cork welcomes more Cruise ships

The Port of Cork will welcome more cruise ships this year than in 2011.

60 cruise ships are scheduled to visit in 2012, which is an increase from 53, and the vessels will bring over 100,000 passengers and crew.

The average passenger will spend from 75 to 100 euro on land, after the ships dock in Cobh, Custom House Quay, and Ringaskiddy.

The “Balmoral” from Fred Olsen Cruise Lines will open the cruise season in April when she arrives in Cobh, and the the “Queen Elizabeth” will return in August.
