Crown Princess in Liverpool

On a very hot Monday morning Crown Princess, the biggest liner to visit Liverpool, arrived in town. She docked around 6:30-7am and the sun came out to welcome the new visitors. Its a very big ship. Bigger than Grand Princess last year but they’re so big its hard to tell the difference. The only real thing I spotted was Crown Princess doesn’t have a giant handle on the back like Grand Princess does.

Around lunch time I went up in a small plane to get shots. Very tricky stuff. I forgot how bouncy the plane was. Its complete luck if you get a good shot as the turbulence is so random. We got very low at this point as you can see. So low in fact that Lee could take this photo.

    That’s great, photos from the ground just can’t show the size. I hadn’t realised quite how big these ships were.

    Excellent shot Pete, It really does show the scale of the thing.

    What a superb picture and what a real pleasure to sail into our home city of Liverpool. We were on this cruise with lots and lots of Americans who just adored the place!
