    Hope for Customs at cruise terminal

    Nov 5 2008 by David Bartlett, Liverpool Daily Post

    Hope for Customs at cruise terminal

    UPGRADING Liverpool?s Pier Head to become a base for cruise liners to start and finish their journeys moved a major step closer last night.

    Steve Broomhead, chief executive of the North West Development Agency, said his group was fully behind upgrading the current ?20m Cruise Liner Terminal ? which currently only acts as a port of call.

    The Daily Post revealed on Monday that cruise giant TUI was not proceeding with initial plans to introduce Liverpool into its Thomson Cruises schedule after two test visits.

    As there are no baggage handling facilities, customs, or immigration available to service the Cruise Liner Terminal, voyages starting or ending their journey have to use the rather primitive Langton terminal in Bootle.

    It is deep in north Liverpool?s freight dock system, rather than the new terminal next to the Pier Head which is in the shadow of the historic Three Graces.

    Last night Mr Broomhead said the facilities needed to transform the Liverpool Cruise Liner Terminal into a full turnaround destination would cost about ?500,000.

    ?I am behind making sure we get full turnaround facilities. The cruise term-inal is one of the most successful projects that the agency has been involved in.

    ?We have re-opened that gateway to the world, but we want people to be able to start and end their voyages in Liverpool.

    The terminal was built with money from the EU, the NWDA, and the council.

    As there were funding rules which prevent public money being used to give the new Cruise Liner Terminal an unfair advantage over other commercially-owned port facilities in the UK and Europe, council officers fear having to pay the cash back unless the issue is handled properly.

    However, Mr Broomhead said he believed this could be overcome. John Kelly, executive director for regeneration at Liverpool Council, said negotiations were under way with Peel Holdings, owners of the Port of Liverpool, Merseytravel, the cruise liner industry, the EU and the NWDA ?to develop a commercial venture which will result in a top class facility to start cruises from?.

    The council is discussing this with Peel as well as options including the com-pany building a new terminal or in the short term improve facilities at Langton.

    Deputy Labour opposition leader Paul Brant said: ?The city needs tourism regenera-tion now, not tomorrow.?

    It is estimated that the city could miss out on an annual ?4.5m with the decision by TUI not to introduce Liverpool into a 30-cruise programme which would have carried 50,000 passengers with a liner based in the city.

    Liverpool council leader Warren Bradley said: ?We need to build on the great success which has been enjoyed by the cruise liner terminal since it opened and which has boosted the region?s economy by several million pounds.?

    Default Liverpool Landing Stage

    Why has the new term Liverpool Cruise Liner Terminal come into vogue when it's always been the Liverpool Landing Stage?

    Just shows you, good game Joe, you'll have to start a new thread and try some more photos. It does make you wonder if it is really worth buying an expensive camera.

    Default Southampton's got it's knickers in a knot!

    Liverpool's bid to capture Southampton's cruise liner trade is slammed

    By Matt Smith DAILY ECHO
    4:45pm Tuesday 22nd September 2009


    CIVIC chiefs in Southampton have slammed a bid by Liverpool to seize a chunk of the UK cruise industry as an ?abuse of state aid.?
    They have joined port bosses in objecting to plans to allow luxury liners that currently dock at Southampton to use Liverpool?s Cruise Liner Terminal as a base to start and end voyages.
    A publicly funded ?20m cruise terminal at the city?s historic Pier Head ? once a gateway for millions of transatlantic passengers ? has already given Liverpool a landing stage for calling megaliners.
    Liverpool City Council now wants it to become a full ?turnaround? terminal with baggage handling, customs and immigration although needs Department of Transport (DfT) approval as ?9m of European Union funding was used to build it.
    But there are fears cruise liners could be relocated from Southampton, which has 70 per cent of the UK cruise market.
    Councillor Royston Smith, Tory Cabinet member of economic development, right, said Liverpool?s proposal was tantamount to an ?abuse of state aid.?

    This bunch in Wurzles in Southampton have got a cheek. The cruise liner business is increasing. Liverpool will provide a service for those north of Birmingham. Why should someone from Newcastle go to Southampton to catch a ship. Now we need direct fast rail links to all cities.

    For 40 years the world's two largest liners had Liverpool on their sterns. Not once did the Queen Mary or Elizabeth sail up the Mersey because a government contract said they must use southern ports - Southampton. The Queens were conceived in Liverpool, the head offices were in Liverpool with the ships having Liverpool written on the sterns in large letters.

    Southampton has had lots of government help along the way.
