The Island goes out of its way to welcome cruise passengers, with an arrivals area, free Wi-Fi and a helpful Welcome Team at the Albert Pier.
St Peter Port, Guernsey's capital, is one of the most picturesque seaports in Europe and is a stunning location for cruise ship calls. With quality port services, professional handling arrangements and a warm welcome, Guernsey has earnt its enviable reputation and sees cruising as a great way of introducing the Island to visitors.
Guernsey's cruise ship season starts in April and runs through until early October. The Island can typically be enjoyed as part of a round-Britain cruise; a repositioning voyage between Northern Europe and the Mediterranean; or on a short-break trip departing from Southampton.
Some smaller cruise ships also visit Alderney, Herm and Sark during the season.
