The Port of Dundee welcomed its first domestic cruise call on July 28. The inaugural arrival of Marella Explorer 2 marked the start of the Scottish cruise season for Forth Ports’ cruise business, Capital Cruising.

The cruise industry and Capital Cruising worked in collaboration with the Scottish and UK governments to develop and strengthen health and safety measures which go above and beyond any other travel sector. These measures will ensure that not only passengers, crew and the port teams are operating in a safe manner, but that the local communities the cruise lines are visiting, have the confidence that strict health procedures are in place.

Rob Mason, head of cruise Capital Cruising, said: ‘‘After an extremely challenging 18 months for us all, we are extremely pleased to welcome the Marella Explorer 2 into Dundee. The health and well-being of the ship’s passengers, crew, our own port staff and the Dundee community being visited is our top priority.”
