  • MV Highlanders

    The MV Highlanders joined our fleet in 2011, along with her sister ship, the MV Blue Puttees. At almost 200m in length, this vessel features comfortable seating areas, spacious cabins and three dining options – the Riva Café, the MET Restaurant and the Barista Café. This vessel helped increase our capacity by 25 per cent, and was designed to make your journey a relaxing one. Take a look at our photo gallery to see all this modern vessel has to offer.

The men and women of these two units continue to provide humanitarian assistance and peacekeeping services that are recognized throughout the world.
