Dun Laoghaire Harbour is set for seven cruise liner calls this summer over the period from May to September. 

The first caller will be the Norwegian Pearl that is scheduled to anchor next Monday off the Harbour Mouth on her maiden voyage to Dun Laoghaire as Afloat previously reported here. The ship has 2,394 passengers and 1,087 crew.

The next liner into Dun Laoghaire will be another to anchor off the Harbour and that is the 292.5m Costa Mediterranea, ten days later on May 15.

Cruise visitors will only miss the Volvo Dun Laoghaire Regatta sailing activity in the harbour by a week when the Star Pride arrives on June 20th but passengers on board the Star Breeze that arrives on September 7th will see the spectacle of the Flying Fifteen World Championships that is being hosted by the National Yacht Club from 2-13th.
