WEST Fife businesses are being offered the chance to hear of opportunities on offer ahead of the cruise season launching next month.

A business briefing will be held in Canmore House and Restaurant on Wednesday, April 3 at 10am.

With a total of 28 cruise days planned for Rosyth this year, organisers CruiseForth say it is likely to be a busy time for shops, visitor attractions, food and drink providers.
