Cruise Ships Passing through Greenock

Post by Allan » Sun Mar 18, 2018 9:14 pm

Thought it worthwhile to start a new thread which relates to cruise ships coming into Greenock, which is reported to create a substantial income to the Inverclyde area.

Would encourage everyone to contribute to this thread.
