Disney Magic welcomed at Invergordon for first time
During a 12-night Britain and Ireland cruise from Dover, England this week, the Disney Magic will celebrate its first-call to Invergordon.
During its maiden call on 8 June, Captain Andy McRonald and shipboard officials invited community leaders and local officials onboard the 2,700 passenger vessel for a traditional maritime plaque exchange ceremony to welcome the new ship and guests to port.
“These inaugural calls are not only a milestone in our Disney Cruise Line history, they give our guests the opportunity to create even more magical memories when sailing with us. In one voyage alone, they’ll experience a mix of new cultures, explore city streets and be immersed in the grandeur of sweeping country sides,” said Captain Andy McRonald.
Captain Iain Dunderdale, Cruise Development Manager, for the Port of Cromarty Firth, said: “This has been a fabulous opportunity for the Port. It was a pleasure to welcome Captain Andy McRonald, Mickey and Minnie Mouse and the rest of their Disney friends to the Highlands for the first time. They even had an extra special welcome from a pod of dolphins as they entered the Port earlier this morning.
We have had a very exciting day presenting Captain McRonald and Captain Mickey with a gift in the Plaque Exchange Ceremony. We were also able to take four members of staff from the Port, who are all huge Disney fans, for a unique VIP visit on-board the ship to meet the Disney Characters and crew. They were also given a VIP tour and lunch.
We look forward to welcoming the Disney Magic back into the Port next month, and the years ahead."
