Cruises calling at Lerwick, Shetlands, in 1978

Cruises calling at Lerwick, Shetlands, in 1978

Hi everyone,

I'd like to find the itineraries of some cruises that passed by Lerwick, Shetlands, during the Summer 1978. This is for a novel I'm writing.

It seems that Royal Viking and Croisières Paquet were involved but if you know of other companies that cruised at that time, I'm all ears.
(For instance, I know that the French liner Mermoz was in Lerwick, Shetlands, in august 1978, but I'd like to know where she headed after.)

Cheers,

Michael

Welcome to the forum Michabou, glad to have you aboard. I too have looked on the internet for an answer to your query but without any luck. I would be interested in the details of your novel once it is published, always interesting to read a novel involving cruise ships. :thumbup:

Try contacting Lerwick Port Authority, you would expect them to have records somewhere.
