118 Lerwick (Shetland Islands) Cruise Reviews

Pretty harbour town. We just had a walk around, though you can take tours from the pier if you wanted to save money on Celebrity’s prices

Rented a car from Bolts, superb service. Loads to see and do. Eashness cliffs, Scalloway castle, ponies, St Ninians Isle, Jarlshof etc all great places to visit. Lerwick town itself super cute. Would love to go back.

This is a post that has not been ruined by the ships coming in- it is still the sweet sincere village that it has always been. We had an excellent tour guide and driver. So much so I came home ans watched Shetland TV show again.

Not much to do. Tour of ruined castle, herd of ponies and small museum were far from worthwhile.

A lovely 'small cruise ship' port . Lovely town to wander around wth great architecture and history. Hardly a tree in sight as you drive around the lovely green countryside. Enjoyed this stop.

Although living only 350 miles from Shetland, I had never visited this area before. Our tour was designed to let us see the best of the stunning scenery which this group of islands has to offer. Our visit to Scalloway Castle was a reminder of Scotland's turbulent past before heading to the more peaceful Tingwall valley. We had time to explore Lerwick by ourselves, looking out for landmarks portrayed in the BBC series, Shetland. Lerwick is built on a steep hill so a reasonable degree of fitness is needed. Read Less

It´s a fantastic place, don´t buy any over priced excursion from MSC, there are much cheaper and better ashore. Have been here 3 times so take your time on the internet before and book your own excursion.

Definitely the highlight of the Cruise, we loved Lerwick and Shetland. Beautiful island with lovely friendly local people. We used Shetland Explorer Tours for a tour round the south of the main island, which included lunch. Driver Brian and tour rep Colin(?) had been living on Shetland for many years and were able to take us to some lovely spots. They were also able to give an insight into local life. The trip we took would have cost more than double had we done it with the Ship. Would strongly recommend this company Read Less

Take the local bus from Lerwick down to Sumburgh. You'll get a very good view of the scenery and enjoy a chat with the friendly locals, who all know each other. Cost £2.90 per person each way.

Pleasant visit here. Good souvenir shops. Went to the Scalloway castle which was not very impressive, but enjoyed seeing Shetland ponies.
