Portsmouth’s strong naval history means that there is so much going on in the harbour area. As you arrive for your cruise, you’ll not only see the famous Spinnaker Tower but also Gunwharf Quays shopping centre, the HMS Queen Elizabeth aircraft carrier and the Historic Dockyard that’s home to Nelson’s HMS Victory.
Alongside the small to medium sized ships that arrive here from cruise lines such as Fred.Olsen Cruises, Saga and Ponant, various ferry routes can take you to France and Spain, whilst the quirky hovercraft can help you make the short hop to the Isle of Wight. Thanks to great travel links, whether you travel by car or rail, cruises from Portsmouth are stress-free. Plus, with so much tangible history to see as you make you way out of port, your holiday will certainly be starting in style.
