SCALLOWAY hosted a cruise ship’s first visit to its port in some time, but passengers on board the Ocean explorer could have wished for a better day from a weather point of view.
Visiting Shetlands on her maiden voyage, the five-star ocean Explorer can carry up to 170 passengers.
The Bahamas have registered a 104-meter-long cruise ship that arrived early Thursday after leaving Kirkwall on Wednesday afternoon. She is due to leave later today for the Faroe Islands and Iceland.
