Liverpool’s new cruiseliner terminal was officially opened as it marked the arrival of Queen Elizabeth 2 to the city last week.
Thousands gathered along the Mersey as the Cunard Line ship, which was on its 40th anniversary tour of the UK, arrived at the £19 million terminal.
The extension of the docks means larger cruise ships of up to 350 metres can come into the terminal. A total of 23 vessels with more than 25,000 passengers are confirmed over the next 18 months.
Opening celebrations included a concert and fireworks, as well as a reception attended by the Duke of Kent, tourism and culture minister Margaret Hodge and Cunard Line president Carol Marlow.
