Cruise ship Prinsendam arrived at Dunmore East todayPosted: May 28 2018
The 207-metre cruise ship Prinsendam pictured at anchor off Dunmore East, Co Waterford today (Mon, May 28). The ship was originally intended to dock at Belview. However, due to foggy conditions on the estuary, the visit was relocated to Dunmore East and the passengers were brought ashore by tender.
“The community-wide effort in facilitating this ship has been fantastic and it is great that the 835 passengers and the crew of the Prinsendam have been so well looked after.”
Capt Darren Doyle, Harbourmaster, Port of Waterford.
Capt Doyle paid particular thanks to the new Harbourmaster at Dunmore East, Deirdre Lane, and her staff for their critical contribution in bringing these visitors to the region.
He added: “Port of Waterford has booked 22 cruise visits for the 2018 season with an estimated 19,000 visitors and 9,000 crew. The success of these visits and the additional revenue generated across the southeast happens as a result of strong collaboration across all the stakeholders and is a testament to the partnership approach adopted by all involved.”
