Fred Olsen's veteran cruise ship BLACK PRINCE was seen late this afternoon lying alongside Greenock Ocean Terminal, as she prepared for her final departure from the Clyde this year. Like some other passenger vessels of her vintage - perhaps most notably QUEEN ELIZABETH 2 - BLACK PRINCE will not meet the next batch of SOLAS regulations without considerable modification, which her owners have decided not to proceed with due to the expense involved. However, BLACK PRINCE is currently scheduled to return to Greenock on a number of cruises next year, prior to her withdrawal.
