Forth Ports Cruise welcomed the magnificent Queen Victoria cruise liner, operated by Cunard, to the River Forth for the first time last weekend when over 1800 passengers were brought to its new anchorage point.

The passengers came ashore at Newhaven Harbour for onward bus tours around the East of Scotland and Fife coast and then onto the city centre.
