16 -19 March   Edinburgh




Edinburgh, Great Britain

Scotland as a whole is a major draw for the cruise market, with Edinburgh in particular a 'must-see' marquee destination. An inspirational conference destination, Edinburgh is one of the great capital cities of the world.

A world-leading centre for business, finance and education, energy and excitement emanates from every corner of the city.

Edinburgh was named Western Europe's Top Cruise Destination 2018 by Cruise Critic, the world's largest online cruise resource.

This is a great opportunity to showcase what not only Edinburgh, but the whole of Scotland has to offer cruise vessels and their guests.
