IT’S OFFICIALLY CRUISE SEASON IN DUNDEE: here’s how our dazzling waterfront opens up to the rest of the world
Dundee’s cruise season has officially begun.
This year’s season is all set to be the busiest on record for Dundee, following the city’s outstanding boom in tourism since the V&A’s unveiling in September last year.
If you’re visiting Dundee for the first time this summer, then you might not know about our excellent cruise port, located on the bonnie banks of the River Tay.
The port is a natural harbour dating back 800 years, surrounded by Dundee’s top visitor attractions (think the V&A and RRS Discovery).
