Quest for Adventure finds the Foyle

9th May 2012
Quest for Adventure finds the Foyle

#CRUISE CALLS – The opening cruiseship caller for this year in Londonderry was marked by the arrival this morning of the 446 passenger Quest for Adventure, writes Jehan Ashmore.

She docked at Lisahally, downriver of the north-west city, having sailed overnight from Dublin Port. The 18,000 tonnes vessel is also operating on her first season for UK based Saga Cruises.

A further seven cruise calls are scheduled this season, noting each visit will be taken by individual ships as there will be no repeat calls. Since 1995 the Foyle have welcomed these vessels.

Asides Lisahally, they can also berth at the city-quays or at anchorage off Greencastle, Co. Donegal.

We've got a favour to ask

More people are reading Afloat.ie than ever thanks to the power of the internet but we're in stormy seas because advertising revenues across the media are falling fast. Unlike many news sites, we haven’t put up a paywall because we want to keep our marine journalism open.

Afloat.ie is Ireland's only full–time marine journalism team and it takes time, money and hard work to produce our content.

So you can see why we need to ask for your help.

If everyone chipped in, we can enhance our coverage and our future would be more secure. You can help us through a small donation. Thank you.
