Port of Southampton Announces Name of New Cruise Terminal

ABP announced the name of its fifth open access cruise terminal at the Port of Southampton

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.”
