Default Cruise Ships

If you like watching cruise ships, Queen Mary 2, Queen Elizabeth and Queen Victoria are all heading down Southampton Water now - line astern. You should be able to see them from the IoW Ryde Webcam. There are two camera Solent View and Cowes Yachting. If you can, watch in full screen.

Thank you for the reminder Barry. What a great piece of showmanship.


Been flicking between Cowes and Ryde.

I watched three cruise ships departing Southampton in convoy during a visit in May 2014 it is quite an impressive sight I hadn't realised just how big they are, and these were not amongst the very largest!
