TWO cruise ships are making stops in Swansea this week, bringing tourists from around the UK.
The Island Sky arrived in the city’s port today and the Hebridean Sky is due in on Thursday.
Both are on UK tours organised by the UK-based Noble Caledonia Cruise Line and being operated under strict Covid guidelines.
The itinerary for passengers on both includes a coach tour of Gower.
Swansea Council’s tourism team have prepared a letter of welcome for passengers. It includes inspiring images of the area together with links to visitor information to encourage the passengers to return in the future.
Robert Francis-Davies, the council’s cabinet member for investment, regeneration and tourism, said: “It’s very encouraging to see cruise ships returning to Swansea as restrictions begin to ease across the UK.”
Rob Gray, Associated British Ports (ABP) port manager for Swansea and Port Talbot said: “ABP has a strong heritage in delivering services to the cruise industry in Swansea and across a range of ports in the UK, and we look forward to partnering with our customers and the local community to develop more cruise opportunities in the future.”
There is no access to the port to view the ships.
