Lerwick Harbour’s largest cruise ship of the busy 2022 season, the 102,587 gross tonne Costa Fortuna, arrived in the Shetland port today (Tuesday 14 June 2022).

Costa Cruises’ 272-metre-long vessel, with accommodation spanning 13 passenger decks, is carrying 1,443 guests of 29 different nationalities, predominantly German, Italian, Spanish and Dutch.

Costa Fortuna arrived from Ijmuiden, Netherlands, on a 15-day Northern Europe round-trip before departing for Seydisfjordur, first of several ports-of-call in Iceland. The ship anchored in the deep-water harbour, with passengers taken to Lerwick town centre by tenders. A full day of shore excursions will give passengers the opportunity to explore Shetland’s most iconic attractions and get a flavour of the islands’ history and culture.

Melanie Henderson, Lerwick Port Authority Cruise & Marketing Manager, said: "Costa Fortuna is another demonstration of the harbour’s capacity to handle a wide range of vessel sizes – 38 so far this season, including eight maiden calls.

“A record of over 100 ship arrivals is scheduled with the final visit in October, highlighting that the recovery in activity post-Covid is well underway, making an important contribution to the Shetland economy.”
