tyne.jpgAnd speaking of MSC Lirica, which we were in my last item, about Abu Dhabi, the ship arrived on the Tyne today, with 1,700 passengers -97 per cent of them from Germany – setting out to spend the day exploring local attractions such as Alnwick Castle, Hadrian’s Wall, Durham Cathedral, and the shops of Newcastle city centre.
The port is looking forward to welcoming a record 37 cruise ships in 2012, Port of Tyne Chief Operating Officer Steven Harrison said: “The Tyne is a new destination for MSC and the Lirica, but other new cruise operators we will welcome this year include Seabourn, Voyages of Discovery, Swan Hellenic and Peter Deilmann”.
The port, which was chosen as the best in the UK by members of Cruise Critic, will be hoping for better weather than the grey skies which greeted Lirica today . . .
