Cruises from Newcastle sail from the Port of Tyne in North Shields. Starting a cruise in Newcastle is a convenient way to travel without flying for people living in the North East of England. For people living elsewhere in the UK, Newcastle is a fantastic city to spend a few days before taking a cruise to Scandinavia or the Baltics.
As Newcastle is a relatively small cruise port, it hosts smaller cruise ships. One of the benefits of sailing on a small cruise ship is that these ships can navigate narrower waterways such as rivers and canals as well as crossing the ocean.
