Orkney welcomes Britain's biggest cruise ship
Kirkwall today (July 10) hosted Britain’s biggest cruise ship , P&O Cruises "Britannia" as part of her first ever British Isles cruise.
Special features include 'The Cookery Club', a 24 person state-of-the-art cookery school developed in association with James Martin; a three-tier feature atrium with Eric Lanlard patisserie, a charcuterie and gelateria as well as spectacular Star Burst sculpture; Sindhu restaurant by Atul Kochhar and Olly Smith’s The Glass House; gala menus created by Marco Pierre White; plus The Limelight Club, a combined entertainment and dining venue in the great tradition of the supper club.
Michael Morrison, Business Development Manager with the Council’s Marine Services team said: “2015 has already proved itself to be a fantastic cruise season. The weather may not have been so kind to us in the last couple of months, but that hasn’t dampened our spirits at all. The feedback from the cruise companies has been extremely positive with Carnival, the largest of all the cruise companies, describing us as the ‘UK success story for cruise’. We’re delighted to be welcoming the brand new Britannia.”
