Stornoway Port Authority will welcome the cruise ship Hebridean Sky on Friday (July 23rd).

The Hebridean Sky will be carrying 66 British passengers and calling at British Ports only. 

This follows the resumption of the Scottish cruise industry as the nation moved to Level Zero. 

SYPA said:“We expect this cruise call to followed by a further six over the course of the season, with the last call of the year currently scheduled for September 20th.

“The UK Government, Scottish Government and cruise operators have implemented strict protocols and procedures to ensure the safety of passengers, crew and members of the public.

"There will be no free movement around the town, and passengers will be required to remain in their bubbles.

"As with all Covid restrictions, these protocols are under constant review and as a result, the policy of only allowing disembarkations in pre-arranged shore excursions will continue for the time being.

“Stornoway Port Authority appreciate the importance of the cruise industry to the Islands, and view it is a vital part of our Deep Water Port project.

"We look forward to the arrival of the Noble Caledonia vessel later in the week, on what is a welcome return to an operator that has been a regular visitor to Stornoway for many years.”
