Le Boreal

Sitting alongside Queen Victoria at Greenock, the French cruise ship Le Boreal  looked very small.

What she lacked in size she made up for in her styling, looking elegant beside the larger Cunarder.

Here she is as she backed away from her berth around 7pm and set off on the next stage of her voyage.

Queen Victoria

One of the highlights in Greenock's cruise ship calendar has to be a visit from Cunard.

Today Queen Victoria came to the Clydefor her first visit in three years.

Keeping up Cunard's tradition, she arrived over an hour earlier that scheduled, arriving slightly before 7am. She is due to depart at 5pm this evening.

Ruby Princess

My first pictures from 2014's ar of Ruby Princess as she sails past Gourock on her way to Greenock Ocean Terminal.

We have a busy schedule this year with many ships, including Ruby Princess, making repeat visits throughout the year.

Ruby Princess berthed at 8am to the sound of a piper on the quayside, and departed a few minutes past 7 in the evening, her next stop being Kirkwall.
