Cruise Passenger Welcome Volunteers

Our uniformed welcome volunteers are on duty to welcome passengers and crew from arriving cruise ships. The passengers often need orientation, transport information, advice on currency and places to visit. Occasionally we go on board ship to provide information to passengers before they disembark. We provide this service at Leith, Newhaven, and South Queensferry (as well as Rosyth).
