Rotterdam registered Cruise Ship Eurodam

Taken from my wee boat while we were just out enjoying the sunshine and 'chasing' the bottlenose dolphins. This brand new and really large cruise ship from the Holland America Line entering the Cromarty Firth (with Cromarty in the background). I like her colours but the superstructure looks a bit to much like a block of flats :)

Why do cruise ships come to Cromarty? When I was working there in the 1960s on Air Sea Rescue boats the only excitement we got was to take a trip round the Cromarty Firth at 33 knots!

Ah, but you were a young man back then and prob not interested in what the Highlands have to offer :)
There are rows of coaches for the visitors waiting to take them to the typical highland days out (like distilleries, nature and scenery and so on). Yesterday we had groups of bottlenose dolphins playing in the Firth all day.
We've had liners come in now for several years and the list is longer every time. This year about 55 visits, 1, 858, 090 GT and 45, 685 PAX. So there must be ways to enjoy yourselves here :)
