European Highlander vessel arrives

P&O's brand-new European Highlander vessel arrived at her new home in Cairnryan last week.

Her arrival ends an epic journey during which the £36m vessel sailed 11,000 miles in 26 days, before anchoring in Larne.

Captain Jim McMullan, who was in command of the ship for her homeward journey, said

"It was an absolute honour to take command of European Highlander for her historic journey home to Cairnryan.

"Although we experienced some of the worst sea conditions ever on the way home, European Highlander handled beautifully and I have no doubt she will quickly establish herself like her sister ship European Causeway".

Following berthing trials in Cairnryan and Larne, European Highlander made her first commercial sailing last week.
