The UK’s leading port operator ABP (Associated British Ports) welcomed 2 cruise ship calls at Port Troon (Scotland) in June 2022.

Noble Caledonia’s Island Sky and the sistership Hebridean Sky made return calls this year after successful visits in 2021.

A total of 5x Noble Caledonia voyages are expected to call/turn around at ABP’s Scottish Port Troon in 2022 including the "Island Hopping Expedition" and "Passage to Iceland" itineraries.

Stuart Cresswell (ABP Troon’s Port Manager) said they were delighted to welcome the luxurious vessels and passengers of Noble Caledonia to their shores.

"It is great to see the leading small ship cruise specialist going from strength to strength and I am thrilled that ABP can support in its offering here in Scotland and add something different to its enticing voyages.”

Troon is ABP’s most northern port, more widely popular for supporting fishing/agricultural industries but cruises are on the rise. The cruise port is currently also focusing on delivering an excellent guest experience and outstanding customer service.

According to Mike Deagan (Noble Caledonia's Head of Fleet Operations), it had been a pleasure to have the Port of Troon hosting those turnaround calls and the 2022 operation had built on the strong ties with the port and its outstanding operations team which had been forged during initial calls last year.

“The entire team at Troon possesses a ‘can-do’ attitude – their teams seamlessly, and with genuine desire, provide the best experience of their port. Blended with our first-class service, I am sure our guests would wish to return for a longer period to experience the stunning Ayrshire scenery”.
