    My word

    No wonder they don't show the vessels in the adverts

      Until the Coronavirus challenges to the cruise industry I had no idea Virgin was in the cruise business.

        They are a relatively new entry (within the last two years, I think)

          The trick with that boat is that it's so ugly you'd almost prefer to be on the inside looking out than on the outside looking in. It's a cunning marketing ploy.

            That is exactly the "genius" of our office building, which was built for US Steel and painted black by Don Regan when he was CEO of Merrill Lynch

              That’s better looking than the ship.

                Did he lean out the windows with a brush, or stand on the ground with a really long-handled roller?

                  Today’s offering from the Mersey is the MS Fridtjof Nansen, the latest expedition cruise ship from Hurtigruten. It’s a more pleasing size than the Virgin monstrosity from the other week, and the back end is especially sleek - although the front still looks like it’s sailed into a dock wall at pace. It was only launched this year and is hybrid powered.

                    Interesting vessel

                    Looks to be used primarily for fjord excursions. Just a bit more luxe than than the mail trawler I was on in the 80s

                    The Coast Guard's Katherine Walker is coming down river this morning, having completed whatever channel maintenance work in was doing earlier in the week

                      The Scillolian, built in Appledore shipyard in 1977 for the run to the Isles of Scilly. It is one of the last Royal Mail vessels and came out of dry dock at the weekend ready for sea trials. She is seen here entering Penzance Harbour.

                        That's nice Paul. Good to see you got a Shag in.

                          Red Funnel's ship "Red Osprey" in dry dock at Falmouth.

                            Early 80s in Falmouth Harbour. Methane Princess, surely a name to stir romance in the coldest of hearts. Two Falmouth posts in a row, what are the odds?

                              I’ve looked up the ship now. Built in Barrow-in-Furness in 1964, the first LNG tanker into service. Methane Progress the sole sister ship. Scrapped in 1998.

                                Methane Progress sounds like wind slowly working it's way through your intestine before a particularly toxic fart...

                                  Methane Princess - not a popular girl.

                                    Oh I dunno, I reckon she could light up your night.
