New cruise support website launched

Apart from the publishing of the cruise ship lists present and future on the marine services website orkneyharbours.com, there is no other central point of pre arrival information for cruise ship passengers and crew arriving in Orkney.

To put this right, launched today was a new website www.cruise-orkney.com 

This aim of this site is to provide passengers and crew and cruise line representatives with pre arrival information on the destination, in particular on shuttle bus operations, shopping and local transport information and other useful points about which we constantly receive email and telephone call enquiries.

Michael  Morrison, Business Development Manager with OIC Marine Services said, ’The website will be an evolving site, and we will react positively to comments and feedback on how it can be improved and developed and therefore  feedback is important to us at the Harbour Authority.

The Kirkwall Business Improvement District (BID) has a direct link from this site to give passengers and crew information on local retail therapy and opportunity; this concept will be developed also for Stromness and other areas of Orkney. It is hoped that the website will provide pre arrival information that the cruise industry and stakeholders  find both helpful and useful.’

Cruise information will continue to be uploaded onto www.orkneyharbours.com
