Debut visit for cruise ship


THE cruise ship Saga Sapphire made her debut Milford Haven on August 30th when she docked carrying passengers from across the globe.
The Port of Milford Haven welcomed more than 600 passengers on a cruise around the coasts of Scotland, Wales and Ireland.
On board were a group of 45 Australian passengers, who are from a company that specialise in selling cruises around the world. There were meet and greet activities including a guided walk for visitors and locals, and a craft fair for all near Mackerel Quay.
Saga Sapphire weighs 37,301 gross tonnes and, at 200m, is the length of two football pitches.
Cruise Development Officer at the Port of Milford Haven, Sue Blanchard-Williams, said she is looking forward to welcoming passengers. “Pembrokeshire is a fantastic port of call with its world famous coastline and some of the richest cultural landmarks in Wales. Cruise companies put us on their itinerary because the Port of Milford Haven is perfectly located for the best that West Wales has to offer. Historic castles, long sandy beaches, wildlife or retail, it’s all right here on our doorstep,” said Sue.
The Port of Milford Haven is leading the promotion of Pembrokeshire as a cruising destination, providing a fantastic boost to the local economy.
