QUEEN VICTORIA - Departure

After spending the day at Greenock, QUEEN VICTORIA sailed in the early evening for her next port of call, the Forth, where she would anchor off Quensferry.

QUEEN VICTORIA is 294 metres in length and has a gross tonnage of 90,049 tons. She can carry up to 2,014 passengers and has a crew of around 900.

Passenger accommodation is on 12 decks, and QUEEN VICTORIA has seven restaurants, thirteen bars and three swimming pools.

As in previous visits by Cunard ships to the Clyde, Waverley Excursions provided special sailings to view the cruiseship while she was on the Clyde. WAVERLEY set out early from Largs and escorted QUEEN VICTORIA to Greenock, before she headed upriver to convey passengers down to Greenock for a close look at the ship as she lay alongside. In the evening, WAVERLEY sailed downfirth a short distance affording passengers a grandstand view as QUEEN VICTORIA made her way out to sea from Greenock.

The sun went into hiding as she left Greenock.
