Default NCL in Dublin

We will take an NCL cruise in May which will take us to Dublin and we are wondering if anyone know which port they use outside Dublin?

We have been there before and are planning to take a train or a bus to the central parts instead of using NCL, which we assume will cost much more.

You must be on the Norwegian Jade docking in Dublin on 26/05/09 (I did that European style ).This should help. "larger vessels berth in Alexandra Quay, located 2kms from the city centre. "

Thank you.

If the weather is fine, it's walking distance! I thought it should be longer from the city center.

Erik - I read that Dublin has a free shuttle into city center. NCL won't tell you about it - it's one of those great little secrets.

I hope it's true. What date are you sailing? We will be on the Jade on May 31 - British Isles cruise for 13 days. We are taking National Express from LHR. I booked a round trip ticket on the Internet. Our hotel in Southampton isn't too far from the bus terminal so we can walk. I think we can walk to the cruise terminal too but we might grab a cab rather than drag the luggage with us!

Thanks Marion.

We will be on the short, 5 nights, cruise to Ireland May 24. The cruise you are going on seems very interesting.

We will be staying in central London before our cruise and will take the National Express from Victoria the day we shall cruise.
