Britannia - First Greenock Visit

P & O Cruise's flagship 'Britannia' arrived at Greenock this morning for her maiden visit to the port.

She appeared at Gourock just before 07:00 and the sun was there to greet her arrival.

Then on to Greenock and past the Esplanade before canting and berthing at the Ocean Terminal.

There was a fair crowd at the Esplanade to see her arrival, though the sun didn't stay long enough to enjoy.

She will be departing around 17:00 this evening if all goes to plan.
