Re: Cruise Ship Visits to Greenock - 2019

You'll need to be quick as she leaves the fleet next year after the second new-build, Spirit of Adventure enters service.
For those passengers not on free tours, Saga laid on a shuttle bus to the Oak Mall and Greenock Central Station!

Re: Cruise Ship Visits to Greenock - 2019

I saw her tonight passing Holy Isle outbound and then caught a bus to Whiting Bay to obtain a better view of her. I believe she is in fact heading for Torshavn, Faroe Islands.

She was sold to Chinese buyers last July and leaves the P&O fleet in August after her final P&O Cruise.

Re: Cruise Ship Visits to Greenock - 2019 / UNSCHEDULED CALL / MARCO POLO - 26/05/19

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.
