Southampton’s Mayflower Cruise Terminal Revamped

Southampton's Mayflower Cruise Terminal Revamped

Southampton’s Mayflower Cruise Terminal has reopened following a  GBP 6 million refurbishment that will enable it to cater for some of the largest cruise vessels afloat.

The terminal, which handles a significant proportion of the city’s cruise turnaround calls, now features a remodelled open plan interior, with expanded security, check in and passenger reception areas.

The increased number of cruise ships visiting Southampton, coupled with the rising capacity of new ships, means P&O Cruises, Cunard and other brands of the Carnival Group, are expecting passenger volume to increase by 25 per cent at Southampton over the next two years.

Steven Young, director of port services & government affairs at Carnival UK, said: ”The Carnival cruise business at Southampton continues to go from strength to strength and with the introduction of new larger ships such as P&O Cruises Britannia, it is important that improvement to the cruise terminals and our passenger journey keeps pace. With the reopened Mayflower terminal we aim to keep this as free flowing and stressless as possible.”

The Mayflower Cruise Terminal is one of four in Southampton and regular callers include the Queen Mary 2, Ventura and the brand-new Britannia.
