Smooth Operators Spread a Bit of Magic for the Costa
Hazy sunshine greeted the Costa Magica when she anchored this morning in Kirkwall Bay for a day long visit to the County.
Over 2800 passengers came ashore, 1540 of them had booked tours around the Orkney Mainland and 28 coaches were on standby on Kirkwall Pier as the first tender boats arrived at the pontoon a little after 09:30 am.
Geraldo de Almeida the Shore Excursion Manager from Costa said ' Todays planning has been perfect and all the tours have worked like clockwork, I look forward to our return visit on the 20th August.'
