Seen passing Cloch Light on her way from Greenock, the Italian registered cruise ship AIDAaura had just sailed from Greenock for the last time this year. As on previous occasions, she was heading for Oban as part of a cruise around the British Isles that had started a few days earlier in Hamburg. Ships of the AIDA Cruises fleet cater exclusively for the German market although the company is part of the large Carnival Corporation which also, amongst others, now owns P&O Cruises, Princess Cruises and Cunard Line.
