The cruise ship “Ruby Princess” LinkExternal link berthed at the Stormont Wharf. Had events proceeded according to expectations the vessel might have been using a purpose-built terminal LinkExternal link on the other side of the Victoria Channel. It appears that the proposal is being delayed pending resolution of various environmental matters. In the meantime passengers can savour the delights of arrival at a quay mainly used for the discharge of animal feed – see J3576 : The "Selandia", Belfast (August 2014).
