Liverpool
Port Rating: 4.0 out of 5+
Cruise ships now berth right in front of the glorious 3 graces- the Liver building, the Cunard building and the White Star. Right by the Cruise terminal is the lovely new museum of Liverpool, with its interesting exhibits of the history of Liverpool as a city and world port. A little further away is the wonderful Albert Dock and its magnificent Maritime museum, currently housing an extended Titanic exhibit, with never seen artifacts. Within walking distance are the 2 Cathedrals, the busy city Centre, The Walker art gallery and of course, the Beatles exhibits.

Belfast
Port Rating: 5+ out of 5+
Belfast is now a port to attract many, with its incredible new Titanic Belfast to showcase its wonderful shipbuilding history. Cruise ships berth within the historic city harbour, and a short taxi ride brings you to the architecturally glorious Titanic Belfast. The very building, on the original Titanic slipway, suggests mighty liners, and houses, not a museum, but a total experience. High tech computer generated images bring the interior of Titanic to life from keel to funnels, holograms animate recreated stateroom interiors, and a ride takes you through the noisy caverns of the shipbuilding yard. This is a world class exhibit, and will bring many flocking to the city. Nearby are the tiny Nomadic, the enormous Titanic fitting out dock with its original Pump House, the currently derelict Harland and Woolf offices and 2 gigantic cranes, used for shipbuilding. The city itself has so much to offer, with its grand buildings, warm welcoming people, and easy access to wonderful countryside.
