Aberdeen, Scotland, set for major cruise ship tourism boost at expanded harbour
Aberdeen is set for a major tourist boost with its newly-expanded harbour due to welcome more than 25 cruise ship visits in the coming months.
The £400m South Harbour, which is both larger and deeper, has been the UK’s biggest marine infrastructure project.
The first cruise call will be the 202m (663ft) AIDAaura – which has the capacity to carry more than 1,200 holidaymakers – on 28 April.
It is estimated the April to September visits could be worth £1.5m.
