Introducing, Horizon Cruise Terminal, the fifth open access cruise terminal at the Port of Southampton.
The terminal received nearly 4,000 name suggestions in a competition, with the winning entry put forward by Anna Chojnacka Liberska from Chandler’s Ford.
She was chosen at random due to multiple entries of the same name.
She wins a seven-night cruise holiday offered by the terminal’s cruise partner, MSC Cruises.
Horizon Cruise Terminal joins the four existing cruise terminals in the port – Queen Elizabeth II Cruise Terminal, City Cruise Terminal, Ocean Cruise Terminal and Mayflower Cruise Terminal.
Director at ABP in Southampton, Alastair Welch said: “We are delighted to be announcing the name for the port’s newest cruise terminal. We selected this name as the shape of the terminal roof is such a distinctive silhouette on the horizon. Cruise is such an important part of the city’s heritage, and we liked how this name suggests a new start for cruise following a challenging year.
“We’re grateful to have worked with our cruise partners NCL and MSC Cruises to support this competition by providing European cruises as a prize. We’re looking forward to welcoming our first cruise passengers to Horizon Cruise Terminal this summer.”
