During the month of August, the population of Edinburgh, is said to double and with good reason, as the city plays host to the world’s largest arts festival - the Edinburgh Fringe. This isn't the only entertainment you can expect, as the city also hosts the Edinburgh Military Tattoo each year, which showcases the work of various performers from around the world.
Our Edinburgh Military Tattoo Cruise departs on the 6th of August, 2016 and offers guests a 14 night cruise, including an overnight stay in Edinburgh and a night out at the 67th annual Tattoo. Our guests will enjoy a cultural evening of fun and entertainment as performers from around the world showcase traditional song and dance.
The annual festival entertains an audience of around 220,000 people each year, with highland dancing, pipe bands and folklore groups from various countries, attracting a large international audience.
The Celebrity Silhouette, launched in 2011, offers a wide range of activities and our guests will also be able to enjoy traditional Scottish song and dance on-board before joining the fun at the Tattoo!
And if the show itself wasn't enough, we’re sure the venue will tempt you! Edinburgh Castle offers both a magnificent and historical setting for the event, with stunning views of the city and is also a must-see when visiting the capital.
