Cruise ship callers ... Dorset summer '21
Before we begin ... a few words of caution ...
Ship enthusiasts, including members of ~Ships~Dorset~ and WSS Dorset Branch, do not limit their interests to passenger ships. Indeed we encourage members and local photographers to value the variety of tankers, bulk carriers, cargo ships and ferries that visit the Port of Poole, Portland Port UK and our Dorset coastline. Having said that the events of 2020 have attracted many cruise ships to our shores, giving us unexpected sightings and many temporary residents. As 2021 unfolds there has been a sudden surge of British Isles cruises including callers we have not hosted at Dorset ports before. This page tries to provide some advance notice of the summer callers ... as at early May ... any information we could find ... our "best efforts" ... but not to be solely relied on!
