Celebrity Eclipse, Grand Princess, Ventura, Oriana (II) & Star Flyer Southampton Debut
A first timer on the 1st September 2012 when Star Flyer, the 2,298grt four masted barquentine cruise ship belonging to Star Clippers of Sweden, made her debut into the port.  She had been originally due on the 5th May but for some reason didn't turn up, nor was on the AIS.  She made her debut in 1991 and has a sister, Star Clipper, who followed a year later.  I had seen another of their ships, Royal Clipper, in the Caribbean at the end of 2011 and was looking forward to this one.  Grand Princess and Eclipse were already in while Ventura and Oriana were arriving as my dad was waiting since I was in Ålesund on a cruise.  Star Flyer sailed at 8pm.
