Teignmouth welcomes first cruise ship

Teignmouth welcomes first cruise ship
History was made at ABP’s Port of Teignmouth with the visit of its first ever cruise ship when Hebridean Princess arrived from Dartmouth carrying 50 passengers.

They were welcomed by the town officials before embarking on a day trip around Teignmouth, which included a visit to Compton Castle. A sea shanty group bid passengers farewell.
It may be the first cruise call but the Port of Teignmouth, located in UK south west is a thriving facility handling more than 400,000 tonnes of cargo each year.
Teignmouth port manager Dave Atkin said: 'The visit of the Hebridean Princess not only demonstrates our capacity for handling cruises at Teignmouth but also the appetite for cruise companies to bring their passengers to see this beautiful part of the world and look forward to welcoming many future passengers to this attractive Devon destination.'
