Cruise ship docked since June 2020 sets sail on the Clyde

Amazara Quest sailed out onto the Clyde on Monday.

A cruise ship mothballed and docked in Glasgow since June 2020 has once again set sail.

Amazara Quest sailed out onto the Clyde on Monday after leaving the King George the fifth dock near Braehead.

Two other liners currently remain at the site, with the cruise industry slowly restarting after the coronavirus pandemic.

The industry was suspended last year as the Covid-19 pandemic took hold, with restrictions being put in place.

Earlier this month, the first cruise ship to visit a Scottish port since lockdown restrictions began arrived at Lerwick harbour in Shetland.

Sixty-six people were on board the MS Island Sky, with all passengers coming off-shore travelling in ‘bubbles’ of up to 15.
