Ships in the Sound
It would be interesting to know whether Tobermory is having a good year for cruise ship visits, as it certainly seems from our side of the Sound. While this is the Star Legend, which called twice in the last month, some are much bigger....
It hasn't been ideal weather for cruising, so it may be that some of the passengers never got ashore, and for some visits....
Most of the ships calling at the moment seem to sail from British ports, so they do offer the attraction of a no-fly cruise and, presumably, cheaper rates than foreign adventures, but the normal image of cruising is sunny skies and blue seas. Perhaps they market this as a 'mystery tour'.
