I've been hoping to get back there too. In 2010 I hope to do a northern TA out of GB. Like you, while looking around at 2009 itineraries, I noticed
Kirkwall wasn't anywhere I could find this year. It is a tender port.
If no one chimes in with an itinerary for 2009, maybe email Caz Mamwell at firstname.lastname@example.org. 8 of us used her guiding services in 2007. She was wonderful, full of the whole 5000 years of history that are the Orkneys! She seemed to know all the other guides we passed along the way. For sure, those guides know every ship/pax load headed their way in 2009.

We may just have to combine a land trip with a cruise to get back to the wonderful Orkneys and this time I would like to learn more about them with a guide .So thank you Martha and Globilizer for the info.
If I find out anymore re the major lines I will pass it along. Karen.
You may have to combine a trip with a land tour if ships are no longer offering it as part of an itinerary.
