After her first visit of 2009 to Greenock, BLACK PRINCE was seen this afternoon departing on one of the last cruises she will make from the Clyde before she is withdrawn from service in the Fred Olsen fleet later this year. She is heading for Cueta in Spanish Morocco before continuing to a number of other Mediterranean ports. Due to be retired in October, BLACK PRINCE has been with Fred Olsen since she was built 43 years ago. in the background, CalMac's SATURN can be seen approaching Gourock - she relieved JUPITER today for her annual overhaul.

Just a quick correction, Cueta is actually a Spanish enclave so not "in" Morocco although it is obviously surrounded by Morocco. A Spanish Gibraltar if you will. Sorry to be pedantic.
