Re: Cruise Ship Visits to Greenock - 2019

Astoria happens to be Ship of the Month in the May 2019 issue of Ships Monthly. However, they have put the wrong Astoria picture on the front cover. Definitely a case of what's on the box isn't what's in the box, as they sort of used to say at Kelloggs.

Just when you think the season is finished!

She is on a one way trip from London Tilbury to Reykjavik, but her original itinerary seems to have been re-jigged.
