Within our website, you’ll find essential itinerary planning information. Suggestions on key things to do including festivals and events, attractions and contacts for each of our members – all within clicking distance.

The warmest of welcomes is extended to Royal Haskoning, our newest member.

Britain has an amazing and continuously evolving cruise offering – talk to us about how our members can deliver for you, your ships, your passengers and your crew.

As 2023 opens, I’m delighted to share that in the closing months of 2022 our association was the proud recipient of an inaugural CLIA Hall of Fame award and also honoured to be a Finalist in Seatrade’s Destination of the Year category at Seatrade Med.

With warmest wishes to you all for a prosperous New Year, and we look forward to seeing you all again very soon.
