Tuesday was very quiet with the only new ship being the Crude Oil Tanker Front Njord (IMO 9408205, GT 83805, 2009) which was moored at Tranmere.
Today Front Njord had left Tranmere but had been replaced by the Cypriot registered Chemical / Oil Products Tanker Baltic Ambition (IMO 9295347, GT 23240, 2007). Similarly Baltic Ambition will not be staying long as she is due to leave for Pembroke overnight.
Ship of the day was Princess Cruises Caribbean Princess (IMO 9215490, GT 112894, 2004) which was berthed in the river at the cruise ship terminal, Caribbean Princess is quite a regular visitor to Liverpool although I have never before managed to get there to see her. She has since left Liverpool and is on route across the Irish Sea to Belfast.
Caribbean Princess can accommodate 3080 passengers and was built by Fincantieri Cantieri Navali Italiani, Monfalcone, Italy in 2004. Her inaugural cruise was on 3 April 2004
