We sailed from Liverpool on the Black Prince in September last year. As we approached Langdon Dock, we were directed to the car park. which was sign posted with ship's name and our car was parked for us by the attendants and we waited (just a few minutes) for a mini bus to take us to the ship - a journey of just a few minutes. We were issued with a voucher for the car and when we returned from our cruise this was presented to the attendants, who brought our car to us. Hope this answers your question.
We are going on a Cruise from Langton Dock in December, and we were wondering just how much is it to park your car there for two weeks?
We sailed on the Boudicca in May 2010 and our parking was included in the price of the cruise, but I don't think it costs as much as parking at an airport. We had to ring and confirm with the car park company giving our booking reference and car registration number. It is easier to reach the car park by taking the first left sign to Langton Dock rather than drive all the way up to the main Seaforth container entrance. There is a security box at the entrance and they check your cruise ticket. You turn left and the car park is about 500 yards down on the right. We parked in a secure car park inside the dock area and people help you unload your luggage and upload it onto a mini bus. This bus takes you to the dockside and you are given labels with your cabin number to stick on your case which is loaded into a large cage. You the proceed to the 'terminal building' (which is a portacabin resembling a NAAFI canteen inside!) where you can buy a drink or sandwich. You queue in lines according to your deck and present your ticket and passport to a Fred Olsen crew member, guests are then called in small groups to embark. Only a short wait much better than airports! It is hoped that Liverpool will be allowed change the use of their main cruise terminal to a dis/embarkation point rather than just a port of call in the near future as Langton Dock is restricted to the smaller ships due to the very small dock entrance. Unfortunately the subject is a political 'hot potato' but a great shame as Liverpool is so convenient for so many people from the north of England.
August 2011 - does Langton Dock terminal still look like a NAAFI cafe???????????
Is there a good place at Langton Dock to meet friends?
