The Black Sea region has great cruise potential but must ensure its infrastructure will serve large cruise ships, as such the launching of new terminals in the region should contribute to the solution.

GP Wild puts Cruise Atlantic Europe on course for over 29% growth in cruise calls
G. P. Wild (International) Limited was appointed by Cruise Atlantic Europe (CAE) to undertake a consultancy project (which was co-financed by the EU Atlantic Area Trans-national Programme) to assist with promoting cruise tourism in the Atlantic Area.
The project (co-financed by the EU Atlantic Area Trans-national Programme) had the main objective of strengthening the position of the Atlantic area within the European cruise tourism market. The work helped to identify new tourism products that could assist the network of ports, cities and regions to economically improve the Atlantic culture and identity.
GP Wild ascertained that there was then no generally recognised Atlantic Europe cruising ground and so this work essentially created a new concept; establishing it as a viable cruising ground in its own right that could be further developed in the future to the benefit of the region as a whole.
The research pinpointed prospects for cruise tourism in the CAE region both from existing markets and new markets. The report also crucially identified a need to develop the shore excursion offer and it is this along with other findings and recommendations from the work by GP Wild which has already led to more than a 29% increase in cruise calls (over the 2009 figure as advised by participating ports) since their report was published. The growth in the number of calls is now more than double that of the market average for Northern Europe. Furthermore the recommendations in the report have identified a model which other ports could use to develop - particularly those in Europe where European funding is available.
As maritime consultants GP Wild (International) Ltd provides business advice and consultancy in a variety of specialist areas with the focus being on cruise port development. With so much competition between destinations getting the right advice on how to develop is vital and GP Wild has been crucial in helping many ports and destinations such as those in the Cruise Atlantic region to maximize their potential.
G. P. Wild Study Helps Secure Consent for London Cruise Terminal
London will soon see cruise ships docking at its heart following Greenwich Council's unanimous vote to grant planning consent for a cruise terminal and associated development at Enderby Wharf in Greenwich and approval from the Mayor of London.
Fundamental to this success was the feasibility study undertaken by G. P. Wild who are working as part of the West Properties design and development team along with engineering consultancy Beckitt Rankine and Architects Ian Simpson. Planning board members were enormously excited about the scheme, with the projects consultation exercise being highly praised. The Enderby Wharf project is located mid way between the O2 Arena and Greenwich Maritime World Heritage Site and was chosen out of 11 possible sites across the capital. G. P. Wild were selected as specialist advisors given their extensive experience and expertise in cruise and port and destinationÂ development. The feasibility study included a detailed analysis of the demand for a purpose built international cruise terminal in London and this was instrumental in securing planning approval.
The Enderby Wharf regeneration scheme also provides a double mooring for the river bus service operated by Thames Clippers, together with a 251-room hotel and 770 new homes. Work is due to start towards the end of 2011. It is hoped that the cruise facility will be available for the 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games.
