Discovery sailing from Le Havre
I was in Le Havre on QM2 on the 9th June 2012 and was pleasantly surprised to see Discovery sailing from Rouen on the AIS.  It would still be several hours before she reached open water so I hoped I wouldn't miss her.  As it turned out, my friend Rob Ellerington Parr looked round and spotted her, so we rushed to the Observation Deck.
I'm very pleased to have seen the original Island Princess, thinking how her sister, Pacific, is still laid up with knackered engines in Genova, photos of which can be found here.  The review of my QM2 cruise can be found here.  To see Amy Blume's photos of Discovery, as Island Princess, click here.
