As my previous edition has disappeared into the ether, I will start another one.
The first item is about Ribble Steam Railway, you may see some familiar names.

A new feature, Container Cargo vessels arriving at Liverpool Gladstone Docks and Naval ships
at Cammal Lairds at Birkenhead. http://shipfinder.co/gallery.php?mmsi=2 ... 687712.jpg just click on the images for other vessels.

Royal Princess is a fairly regular visitor to the Liverpool Cruise Centre near to Pier
at 330 metres long and 44 meters wide she makes for a splendid sight.
The fact that she does'nt need the assistance of tugs and uses her own thrust
makes for interesting viewing.

Good. As a regular P and O cruiser, this suits me fine. We always canceled, or reduced the 'mandatory' tips anyway, which one can do once on board, and tipped who we wished to. :)
