A&P Falmouth welcomed one of the world’s newest cruise liners to the port last week when the Viking Jupiter arrived for a day’s stop-over on only its fifth voyage.

The ship, which has nine decks and can carry 930 passengers, was on its 13-day inaugural "Northbound Repositioning Cruise" from the Mediterranean to the Baltic Sea when it called in at Falmouth.

It was the first of six cruise ships which are due to visit Falmouth this month. Following close on her heels, and docking at Falmouth’s International Cruise Terminal, on Monday (May 6) was the Ocean Adventurer; and then came the Prisendam on Wednesday with the Seabourn Quest expected on Thursday the 9th. The Amadea will visit Falmouth, but remain at anchor in Falmouth Bay, on May 28.

The busy schedule reflects A&P Falmouth’s commitment to attract more liners to the port, with each ship providing a welcome boost to the town and the county’s economy.

Drystan Jones, A&P Falmouth’s Port Operations Director, said: “This is the second year Viking Cruises have come to A&P Falmouth and they have already booked again for 2020.
