The main cruise lines visiting are Ambassador, Aida, Viking, Norwegian, TUI, Saga, Holland America, Fred Olsen, P&O, MSC, Princess and Costa Cruises. There are multiple calls from these cruise lines to Invergordon during the year.

Invergordon is a popular cruise destination because it is the closest accessible port to Inverness. It provides easy access to Inverness and to a wide variety of excursions throughout the Highlands.

The most popular shore excursion offered in Invergordon is a half day tour to Loch Ness – either to take a cruise or to visit Urquhart Castle. Another popular trip is to head to Inverness for free time and to explore at your own pace.

If you are coming to Invergordon and planning on taking a half day tour then do take a little time to walk into the town. It is small – the population is less than 4,000 people – but there are some nice murals to see, a free museum, some gift and art shops, as well as some easy walks along the shoreline.

Invergordon town centre is a 5 minute walk from ships that are berthed in the service base. For ships that are berthed at Saltburn pier there is a shuttle bus that takes guests into the town centre.
