SMS handled Noble Caledonia’s Sea Explorer on her maiden call at Portsmouth

Cruise ship specialists Southern Maritime Services (SMS) have handled the Noble Caledonia vessel Sea Explorer for the first time at Portsmouth International Port (PIP).

The luxury cruise ship, with capacity for just 114 passengers, made her maiden call at PIP when she started a UK and Ireland cruise. It was the first of two calls she is due to make this season with both being supported by SMS as PIP’s exclusive cruise ship handling company.

SMS provided ship’s agency, stevedoring and baggage handling services to Sea Explorer, including loading stores for the six-day voyage.

Sea Explorer’s two calls are among nearly 40 cruise ships that SMS will handle in PIP this year.

“Sea Explorer is a small and exclusive ship whose passengers expect premium service and a smooth turnaround operation is essential to maintain the standards that the ship sets,” explained SMS Director Paul Kempton.
