These are the cruise ships that will be arriving in Falmouth in 2014, with one new addition, the sail cruise ship Sea Cloud II.

Sea Cloud II is set to return in August when she will anchor off the port or in the harbour. In total 26 ships carrying 20,000 passengers will boost the town’s economy this season.

There is a strong German contingent this year with the Artania, Astor, FTI Berlin, AIDAcara, Albatros, Europa and Amadea all carrying German speaking passengers.

Falmouth is a firm favourite with German-operated cruise ships and their passengers. The Germans seem to love Cornwall, its heritage and gardens with feedback from the ships praising the port.

Hapag-Lloyd’s five-star plus, ultra luxurious Europa makes her call in August on a Hamburg to Kiel cruise taking in a west about cruise around the UK.
