The United Kingdom’s Port of Tyne experienced record growth in 2013, thanks to a booming local cruise industry growing there. The award-winning and fully equipped International Passenger Terminal at Port of Tyne saw an unprecedented number of passengers coming from some of the world’s largest cruise vessels in 2013. Cruisers visiting the port on their way to beautiful nearby destinations such as Scandinavia, the Mediterranean and the Baltic are expected to contribute around £54 million to the Northeast England regional economy each year.
The Port is looking to grow its presence and attract larger cruise ships to the area in the years to come. Read more about Port of Tyne’s plans for the future here.
