Cunard's 'Queen Victoria' Debuts New Harbour Anchorage Point For Edinburgh
Forth Ports Cruise welcomed Cunard’s magnificent Queen Victoria cruise liner to its new cruise ship anchorage operation near Newhaven Harbour, Edinburgh
With over 1,800 passengers on board, the luxurious Queen Victoria called into the River Forth on Sunday 25th May for a visit to Scotland’s capital city as part of a UK cruise. The liner was successfully anchored in deep water off Newhaven in the morning and over 1,500 passengers from around the world travelled the short distance on in tenders into the harbour which is close to Edinburgh’s city centre. This inaugural call to the new anchorage point in the Forth is part of Forth Ports’ Cruise programme of identifying alternative deep water anchorage options and landing stages to bring larger liners closer to Scotland’s popular capital city.
