Norwegian Sun - Cruise Ship at Greenock

Greenock welcomed the last big cruise ship of the year today.

At 78,000-tonne, her last visit to Greenock was in September 2010.
She departed at 18:30 bound for Dublin - a little later than planned - and with the sun setting fast I wondered if I would manage any decent shots.

Although the sun disappeared behind a cloud, it suddenly burst through just as she left her berth to give some dramatic lighting.

A busier than ever schedule is planned for cruise ships to visit our waters next year, so many more photo opportunities will beckon.
