TWO cruise ships carrying more than 1,000 passengers and 500 crew are scheduled to call at Milford Haven this month.

The Ocean Majesty will arrive from Cork at 7am on Saturday, September 16, as part of its 11-night voyage from Bremerhaven in Germany.

Passengers will enjoy trips to St David’s, Pembroke Castle, Tenby and Upton Castle, as well as complimentary entry into Milford Haven Museum.

It will depart at around 7pm and continue her journey onto Falmouth.

Just days later, on Thursday, September 21, the MS Europa will arrive from Avonmouth.

It holds the title as one of the only six-star cruise ships in the world and is a German-speaking vessel.

The Europa is expected to arrive at 7am before setting off on excursions, as well as spending time in Milford Haven.

Passengers will be on a 14-day cruise from Kiel to Hamburg, with its next stop at Dartmouth. The Europa last called at Milford Haven last May.

Alec Don, chief executive at the Port of Milford Haven, said: “We’ve enjoyed welcoming hundreds of cruise passengers and crew to the county this summer.

"Some choose to explore historic sites and visit popular coastal towns, but many opt to stay in Milford Haven to enjoy the picturesque marina and sample the diverse mix of independent shops, cafes and restaurants.

"We provide a free shuttle bus around the town to ensure the visitors are able to experience everything that Milford Haven has to offer.”

Earlier this year the Port welcomed the Silver Explorer to Pembroke Port in June and the Prinsendam into Milford Haven in August.
