Port Specification

With two spacious berths, the natural deepwater port of Greenock offers a safe, convenient stopping point for cruise ships of all sizes. In the past we have comfortably berthed the Queen Mary 2 alongside, demonstrating our ability to accommodate the largest cruise vessels afloat.

The newly refurbished Terminal Building provides access to a host of local information and assistance for both passengers and crew, from opportunities to purchase essential items and souvenirs, through to internet access.

Cruise partners are reassured by our extensive security provision which includes full shore side checks and screening facilities including x-ray. In terms of towage, tugs are not compulsory but can be ordered with as little as two hours’ notice. We have pilots and linesmen available 24/7, with no restrictions on arrival or departure times.
