04 May 2018One of world's largest cruise shops docks in Invergordon
The largest cruise ship to dock in Scottish waters arrived in Invergordon on Tuesday. MSC Meraviglia sailed from Hamburg as part of a round-British-Isles-and-Ireland tour. The huge ship has a capacity for 5700 passengers and will make five further visits to Invergordon this summer.
The 19-deck MSC Meraviglia is one of 90 ships to visit the Cromarty Firth this year bringing an estimated 170,000 pasengers to the port (an 11% increase on last season's number of paseengers).
This year also marks the 40th anniversary of the first cruise ship to dock in the Cromarty Firth.
