Holidaymakers on the lookout for the Loch Ness Monster with Princess Cruises

Date Posted: 24 Jul 2009
Category:
The population of a small town in Highland, Scotland, almost doubled recently after a vessel from Princess Cruises docked at its port.

Some 3,000 passengers were on board the Crown Princess as it called into Invergordon, alongside an additional 1,200 crew members.

A number of the holidaymakers were particularly looking forward to the hope of catching a glimpse of the Loch Ness Monster on their visit to the Highlands, which was the first time that the vessel had stopped at the port.

Cruise Highlands' captain Ian Dunderdale said: "Large cruise liners such as the Crown Princess, which will be calling at Invergordon four times this season, provide an enormous boost to the local economy.

"Around 50 cruise ships will visit the area this summer, bringing visitors from across the world."

Ship captain Nick Nash added that all of those on board also got the chance to look at the "beautiful docking pier" on their way into the town, alongside the "great" experience of emerging through the cliff heads at the entrance to the Cromarty Firth.

Holidaymakers considering a trip on the Crown Princess vessel will have the chance to choose from a suite with a balcony, an interior double room, a family room or an Oceanview double with balcony.
