It's that time of the season where both first and new visits are scarce.Under the category of first visit on 25th Aug.was the wee Ocean Majesty,I must admit I like the lines of her I would imagine a cruise would be full of character.Cheers Williemac

The eagle eyed among you will have spotted my deliberate mistake! The first pic is of course Europa which was in on Mon.26th,if not the first visit by this ship it's certainly a long time since her last visit.Cheers Williemac

Viking Ocean Cruises' Viking Sun is calling at Greenock on Friday. She should have been in Holyhead that day.

She arrives from Liverpool around 8.00am and sails for Belfast at about 6.00pm.

She is on the first sector of a 245 day Ultimate World Cruise visiting 53 countries!
