Liverpool is due to become part of the Northern Atlantic Westbound Crossing route of Cunard Line, linking the port city with Iceland, NYC New York and Canada.

The 14-night cruise, which departs from Southampton UK on July 14, will head to Liverpool, then onto Reykjavik, and Nova Scotia. Finally, it will dock in New York.

Cunard said they had added the city due to maintaining historic ties and popular demand. The line's strong ties to Liverpool span from being based in the port city between 1839-1967 and the Cunard Building remains one of Liverpool's most famous landmarks.

The luxury cruise liners are very popular in the city, with more than a million people lining the banks of the Mersey River in 2015 when Cunard's Queens met to celebrate the company’s 175 year anniversary.

The new route will see the ocean liner RMS Queen Mary 2 docking in Liverpool later this summer.
