Pre & Post Opportunities

Discover Dover and your clients will also thank you for giving them the opportunity to explore England’s oldest county.

Kent is famed for its unique cathedral, castles and country houses throughout the county; in fact it’s such a popular destination that, at the last count, Kent attracted more than fifty million visitors in a single year.

With so much to see in and around Dover, arriving a day in advance provides a great opportunity for sight-seeing.  Equally, on disembarkation, a day or two spent in Canterbury taking in the Cathedral or visiting the many castles in the county provide a memorable start or finish to any cruise.



With the predicted incredible growth of the cruise industry, it is imperative that Travel Agents are equipped with adequate knowledge and understanding of the various cruise products available.

As a cruise port we fully support all of our Operators with ship visits and educational tours when possible we provide training on the destination and the surrounding attractions.

As an associate member of CLIA UK & Ireland we actively encourage Travel Agents to become members and benefit from the training courses that take agents from cruise novice to cruise expert with unbiased guidance, advice and services. All operators provide training on their products, and many are now offering on-line courses.
