The London International Cruise Terminal, London’s nearest port, located at The Port of Tilbury, this week welcomed the arrival of Virgin Voyages new cruise liner, the Valiant Lady. This magnificent vessel is the largest cruise ship ever to visit the berth.
She will be berthed in Tilbury for a few days for a series of private events to showcase the brand-new vessel before starting her European cruise sailings.
Uber Boat by Thames Clippers, London’s River Bus, will be providing the cruise transfer services for guests, fans and media between London Bridge City Pier and Tilbury. It takes only one hour to travel comfortably by river from London maximising the use of the Thames for cruise transfers into the capital.
Commenting on the arrival of the Valiant Lady, Steve Lyons, Head of Cruise for Capital Cruising said: “We are thrilled to welcome the Valiant Lady on her inaugural visit to the London International Cruise Terminal. She is an impressive ship and the largest cruise vessel we have handled here at the terminal. Following a challenging two years for the cruise industry, we are all looking forward to welcoming cruise liners and passengers back into Tilbury this year.”
Geoff Symonds, Chief Operating Officer at Uber Boat by Thames Clippers said:
“It’s exciting to see cruise liners coming back to The UK and this is a great opportunity to showcase London as a cruise destination. Transfers by river into the heart of the capital from Tilbury within the hour via high-speed ferry will demonstrate how accessible London has become for the cruise industry.”
