Between 07:00 and 09:00 on April 05, 2013 seven warships arrived the Liverpool Cruise Terminal. One British, two Polish, one Belgian, one German and one Norwegian. The vessels are due to take part in "Joint Warrior 131" - the bi-annual NATO exercise held off the Scottish coast. This is the largest number of ships ever to berth at the Liverpool Cruise terminal and by far the largest number to berth on the Liverpool waterfront since the demise of the old wooden landing stage in the 1970s.
