With 130 calls scheduled for 2022, Port Dover (England UK) is set to receive more liners than in any previous year. Of those, 73 are turnarounds/roundtrips and 11 are inaugurals.

According to Christian Pryce (Port's CCO), Dover welcomed 25+ individual cruise lines and with the investment made in berths, they could accommodate up to 3 ships at once.

Dover hosted both CCL-Carnival Cruise Line’s Carnival Pride and RCI-Royal Caribbean’s Jewel OTS on June 26. Carnival Pride had arrived in the Port for her inaugural call the previous week and it was Carnival’s first call in Dover since 2013.

Other recent inaugurals include Sea Cloud Cruises’ Sea Cloud Spirit and Lindblad’s NatGeo Explorer.
