Thanks for the comment Brian. She's not a ferry, but a fully-fledged cruise ship. I believe she usually cruises in the Baltic, but is currently undertaking a cruise around other European ports. She was due to sail for Cherbourg earlier this evening.

Great shot Phil - what was this ferry doing in London?
