The residents of Kirkwall must have been a little daunted when the cruise ship Ruby Princess docked at Hatson Pier last Sunday morning and up to 2971 passengers and 1133 crew-members could have come ashore. It was certainly a case of all hands on retail outlets, including the post office, in the town. At least the interior of St Magnus Cathedral, although different in style, can match the dimensions of one section of the ship's design. If you want to learn more, then go to The Orcadian.
Scottish Islands Explorer - should have sold well in the Kirkwall outlets
