World Ports

Freighter ships do not always use the same ports as cruise liners, they will often dock at a container terminal, which can be located quite a way out from the city centre. More information can be found from the port authority for the major container terminals worldwide that are regular destinations on the main shipping routes.

It is important that you do NOT use the list below as your only source of reference - it is YOUR responsibility to check with your agent exactly which port or container terminal your ship is arriving or departing from - this list is only offered as an approximate guide.

I have tried to make this list as accurate as possible, but I make no guarantees that it is error free - please also be aware that there can sometimes be more than one port serving a particular city - so you must use this information with caution and at your own risk. accepts no liability if you miss your ship!
