Although we are approaching the end of the holiday season, we have a cruise ship berthed near Greenwich. The ship is called the Silver Spirit and operated by Silversea Cruises.
The ship was built at the Fincantieri Ancona shipyard and was launched in 2009, although the ship looks large it only carries a maximum 650 passengers and about 400 crew.
Silver Spirit is considered a luxury cruise ship with 270 ocean-view suites and six restaurants with plenty of amenities.
Cruise ships are not an unusual sight on the Thames where they often berth at Greenwich or near Tower Bridge.
The Silver Spirit leaves Greenwich today to start its cruise to Barcelona.
