I was awoken by her chorus, as she glistened in the darkness of the morning. Unfortunately, I did not manage to see her over the course of the day but she again majestically passed me by on leaving for Liverpool that evening of the 19th October 2009.


A fantastic sight to see, and I believe the biggest ship ever to visit the River Clyde. The Greenock Telegraph reported that 5000 people lined the waterfront to see her. Passengers and sightseers were entertained by a  spectacular firework display before she departed for Liverpool.
