Two cruise ships arrived in Lerwick today (Monday) – the latest since last month’s easing of restrictions.
The Islands Sky became the first cruise ship to visit Shetland in 17 months when it called in on 19th July. The Noble Caledonia operated ship has been spotted at the harbour again today.
Marbella Explorer has also visited today, exactly a week after its sister ship Marbella Explorer 2 arrived with hundreds of tourists.
The Tui operated cruise ship is on a 10 day “British Sights and Seas” round-trip, which will see it calling in at destinations including Dover, Leith Edinburgh and Kirkwall.
Both ships are adhering to strict Covid-19 regulations, with reduced passenger numbers, social distancing and vaccination requirements.
Cruise ships are scheduled for visits to Shetland through until October.
