First Cruise Ship Docks at Port of Teignmouth

ABP’s Port of Teignmouth marked a milestone on Thurdsay with the arrival of the first ever cruise ship at the port,  the Hebridean Princess, carrying 50 passengers.

The passengers were welcomed by the town officials before embarking on a day trip around Teignmouth, which included a visit to Compton Castle.

The cruise ship, operated by Hebridean Island Cruises, departed Teignmouth in the evening, to the sounds of a sea shanty group bidding them farewell.

Teignmouth Port Manager Dave Atkin said: “This is a historic day. The visit of the Hebridean Princess not only demonstrates our capacity for handling cruises at Teignmouth but also the appetite for cruise companies to bring their passengers to see this beautiful part of the world.

We hope that this is the first of many cruise calls at Teignmouth and look forward to welcoming many future passengers to this attractive Devon destination.”
