Cruises from Edinburgh
The Scottish capital’s port is one of the biggest north of the border, and Leith is also the permanent home of the Royal Yacht Britannia.
Edinburgh is, of course, also superbly well connected with the rest of Scotland and the UK. You can travel to Leith by road using the M8 or by train – get to Edinburgh’s Waverley station then grab a cab for the short journey to the Ocean Cruise passenger terminal.
Cruises from Leith offer the ideal opportunity to explore northern Europe, whether you want to be away for four nights or 12. Many of the trips are with leading cruise line Fred Olsen, which has been in the business since 1848 when it was started by three Norwegian brothers. The firm understands the cruising business inside out.
The ambience on board is friendly and intimate. The ships tend to be small, but you still get all the facilities and high quality service you’d expect from a larger vessel.
