Looks familiar! Apart from calling at Greenock last year, she is the former Artemis of P&O Cruises and before that, Royal Princess of Princess Cruises. She has been at Greenock in their livery as well.

What a beautiful morning to greet Oriana today!I was surprised to see she required the assistance of Ayton Cross and Svitzer Milford to cant and berth,the last one Ican remember needing that was the Black Prince! No matter,the main thing is she made it.Cheers Williemac

Oriana doesn’t have azipods and so not as manoeuvrable as newer cruise ships. I’ve been on her big sister Aurora a few times and she too has needed tug assistance.

Nice shots Paul,I meant to get her arriving however I think she was trying to outrun the weather and came in about 4 a.m.! I did manage to get Nautica though,she came in while it was still dry,though a wee bit misty.
Cheers Williemac
