Carnival Pride is the first Carnival ship to visit Dover since 2013

The Port of Dover is experiencing a record-breaking cruise season, with over 130 calls scheduled at its cruise terminal.

The port hosted two cruise ships with the visits of Carnival Cruise Line’s Carnival Pride and Royal Caribbean International’s Jewel of the Seas. This followed the inaugural call of Carnival Pride, which was Carnival’s first call in Dover since 2013. The ship is one of 11 cruise vessels to make their first visit to the port, including Lindblad Expeditions’ National Geographic Explorer and Sea Cloud Cruises’ Sea Cloud Spirit.

“The Port of Dover welcomes over 25 individual cruise lines and counting, and with the investment made in our berths, we can accommodate up to three ships at once,” said Christian Pryce, chief commercial officer at the port. “Dover’s cruise terminal is welcoming hundreds of thousands of passengers to experience the wonders of Kent's Heritage Coastline and our world-famous White Cliffs and helping them onward on adventures to multiple destinations around Europe, taking in Norwegian Fjords, Spanish islands or rugged stretches of coastline on Scotland’s West Coast.”
