Sure is. Biggest cruise ship in the world when it was built in 98 I read.

Some photos from today sailing down the Clyde.


I also spotted the old Fairfield sign when on the Waverley (DSCF1505). Is there no way that that can be listed and given a coat of varnish to preserve it in it existing faded form? Probably not as it is on private i.e. BAe Systems land. But it must be the only thing left that has the old yard name on it. Even my Dad didn't know it existed, and he was in the yard for 30 odd years. :cry:
