A luxury cruise ship will berth in Dundee before setting sail on its maiden voyage later this month.
The recently refurbished Magellan, will dock in the city on the morning of March 29.
It will then set off from the City of Discovery for a week-long trip to the Norwegian fjords.
The 726-cabin goliath will return to the city twice more on April 5 and 12, before setting course for Newcastle.
With more than half of the places aboard Magellan already booked, Dundee is looking likely to be a successful port for departing cruise ships.
Colin Ramsay, owner of Ramsay World Travel, which is marketing the cruise, said: “We’ve sold over 600 places for the cruise already out of a possible 1,200.
“It’s been very popular in the area, to the extent that we had to take over booking spots that were meant for Newcastle to accommodate the numbers.”
Magellan’s owner, Cruise and Maritime Voyages, and the cruise’s promoter, Ramsay World Travel, are hopeful that the instant success will mean more ships will dock in Dundee in the future.
Mr Ramsay said: “It looks certain that Cruise and Maritime Voyages will be sending another cruise liner this way next year.
“Nothing’s set in stone yet, but we will be looking to confirm another ship soon.
“It’s been such a success because it’s meant that people don’t have to fly out to the Med or to the Caribbean or anything like that to be able to go on a luxury cruise.”
Travellers will be spoilt for choice for things to do aboard the Magellan, with the luxury liner providing top-of-the-range cabins, six bars, three restaurants, shows, a nightclub, casino, swimming pools, and a shopping centre for her passengers.
Colin said: “There are two top class restaurants, as well as a buffet restaurant, and so much to do, as well as pools to relax at.
“It will be a real treat for everyone who goes.”
The ship docks just weeks after ground was broken on construction of the V&A museum on the Waterfront.
It’s hoped further stops from cruise ships in the future could contribute to the area’s dramatic transformation.
