» The World & Oriana Arrival

Ships Attending: {The World} {Oriana}
Date: {21/05/04}

My advice was that 'The World' was due in at 05.30 and would be alongside by 06.00 so it set the alarm nice and early and headed down to Town Quay, it was pretty dark and quiet as you can see my from first couple of sunrises!

Eventually I found out that she wasn't going to be appearing until 08.00, but luckily the Oriana was also heading in and she arrived just as the sun was rising, she looked pretty good and I made my way to Mayflower park for a few more shots as the sun caught her.

Finally about 07.40 'The World' made her entrance to the port carrying her prosperous tennants. Slightly smaller than perhaps I expected but well refined. With an air of quality about her she slowly made her way up an otherwise empty Southampton Water and I happily snapped away.

I did (for the second time) visit May Flower park and managed to get some quite interesting shots of her berthing at dock 104 with Oriana having turned facing me, and all the while the sun was out! well worth while waking so early - enjoy the photos!
