Capital Cruising, which runs several UK cruise terminals, including Edinburgh and London Tilbury, welcomed Viking Star to Port of Rosyth for a maiden visit.


The Viking Cruises’ vessel sailed underneath the iconic Forth Bridges before docking at Rosyth, as passengers spent the day exploring Edinburgh, Fife and the surrounding area.

A traditional plaque exchange took place with Viking Star’s Captain Lockling; head of cruise for Capital Cruising, Robert Mason; and Helen Law, chair of the CruiseForth Project.

Mason said: ‘Maiden visits are becoming regular events for Capital Cruising’s terminals across the UK and we’re very excited to welcome Viking Star, at the Port of Rosyth. Our teams at the ports around Edinburgh, and at London and Dundee, are seeing more cruise calls than ever before. 2017 is set to be our busiest yet with around 190 calls.’
