Trio of Cruise Ships for Port of Cromarty Firth 23/05/2014
The Port of Cromarty Firth is preparing to welcome 3 cruise ships on Monday 26th May, including a maiden visit by the Queen Victoria.

Cunard’s Queen Victoria is on her maiden visit to the Port and will be berthed at the Admiralty Pier.  She will be carrying 2,000 passengers and by calling in at Invergordon she follows in the footsteps of her famous sister ships –the Queen Mary, Queen Elizabeth, Queen Elizabeth 2 and the Queen Mary 2 (QM2).

Mein Schiff pays its second visit of the season and will be berthed at the Invergordon Service Base.  This German vessel will be carrying 1,900 passengers.

The third ship in Port on Monday is the Marco Polo, a familiar visitor to the Port of Cromarty Firth.  This British ship will be carrying approximately 760 visitors and will berth at Saltburn Pier.

With more than 4,600 visitors arriving at once, Highland businesses have been gearing up in anticipation of a bumper tourist boom. 
CEO of the Port of Cromarty Firth, Bob Buskie, said “This will be a busy day for the Port and for the Highlands.  With all three ships arriving between 0730 and 0900, the team has put in to place a lot of planning ahead of Monday. The Port is very lucky to be able to accommodate 3 modern cruise ships at once.  This brings such benefit to the local economy in the form of direct and indirect spend.”

Bob adds “The welcome given by the Invergordon community is key to the repeat business the Port sees from some respected cruise operators, such as Cunard.”

Cruise Development Manager for Cruise Highlands Ltd, Captain Iain Dunderdale, comments “Cruise Highlands has worked closely with the Port to ensure a trouble free experience for all on board and for the town of Invergordon.  We are looking forward to welcoming the Queen Victoria on its maiden voyage to Invergordon.”
