Cant say theres a specific start point. But the city centre seems to be the likely one. U can get on at any of the drop offs and call it your 'start'. People get off and on at various points and join any of the tour buses... More

No. The bus stops near the Titanic museum. The cruise terminal is over the other side of the dock. Some distance away from the bus route.
