Hebridean Princess visit

25 August 2015

The final cruise ship visit of the year to be hosted by the Port of Milford Haven comes to Pembrokeshire this weekend (Saturday 29th August), signing off another busy cruise season.

The small and exclusive ship Hebridean Princess will come alongside in Pembroke Port where she will be welcomed by HM Lord Lieutenant of Dyfed, The Hon Robin Lewis OBE CStJ, Chairman of Pembrokeshire County Council Wynne Evans and other civic dignitaries.

Passengers will be treated to a birds of prey display and entertainment by a magician, before being taken on a tour of Pembroke Castle and a visit to the National Trust’s Woodland Garden at Colby during the 24 hour stop-over. They will return to the ship for dinner where they’ll enjoy a performance from local harpist Joy Cornock.

Alec Don, Chief Executive at the Port of Milford Haven, said the final visit this year has capped off a successful cruise season for 2015. “Whilst weather-wise we can’t say it has been the best summer, we have still had thousands of cruise passengers on six ships land in Pembrokeshire this year. It just shows the enduring attraction that this area has to offer, with great places to visit, wonderful shops and restaurants, all in easy reach of the Port.”

Hebridean Princess is the smallest cruise ship afloat, carrying just 50 guests and 38 crew. She is making her way to her home port in Oban, stopping off at Holyhead, the Isle of Man and Dublin en route.
