I see what you mean John re. windows, I would have liked a bow shot as well, maybe next time, if there is one. Tilbury sky seems a permanent feature these days !! wasn't a very nice morning.

Not a bad looking ship that Ken. In some ways looks older than her years design-wise, I'm thinking of those overly vertical rectangle windows.
And a lovely dark Tilbury sky adds to the shot!
