We did a cruise from Leith to Norway last year. The Cruise terminal is right next to Brittannia - you get a good view once on board. The whole experience from parking the car to getting on board was first class. As we live only 30 minutes away it was so nice to get off the ship and drive home rather than hanging around a London airport waiting for a flight back to Edinburgh.

Thank you! We are probably going to stay at the Holiday Inn Waterfront the night before and I understand it is opposite the Ocean Terminal/Cruise Terminal.

Thank's for your reply, We are already pushing the boat out!

Hope you enjoy Malmaison!

A dedicated cruise terminal building was opened in 2006 at Leith Western Harbour, next to the Royal Yacht Britannia and Ocean Terminal Shopping Mall. The terminal is 15 minutes via public transport from the city centre and connections to Edinburgh Airport and features 370m of quayside, large car parking and coach handling areas. Leith Docks’ operator Forth Ports has tabled plans to build a new cruise liner terminal by 2009 for vessels larger than 50,000 tonnes.

I thought a cruise would be perfect as it would give me a good insight to each place visited with the chance to see what they have to offer with a possible return visit in the future.I pre-b...

Celebrity Edge Looks Incredible!

By Freddie Moser

So yesterday afternoon I was lucky to attend an online preview of some of the accommodation and facilities aboard Celebrity Cruises most ambitious ship ever built; Celebrity Edge….I’ll be honest when I first heard the name of the ship, I thought it was an awful choice. However it’s since grown on me, and after watching the presentation, I now see the logic in the name Edge.You see this ship is first and foremost all about design and technology, so phrases like ‘Cutting...
