Silver Explorer, Silver Whisper, Independence of the Seas, Seven Seas Explorer UK Debut, Ventura, Crown Princess, & Queen Victoria
Technically there were seven ships scheduled on the 3rd June 2017, but they wouldn't all be in together.  Silver Whisper and Silver Explorer had stayed overnight.  Silver Explorer sailed at 5am, just as Indy and the others were arriving.  Indy replaced Navigator in front of Silver Whisper.  The 55,254grt vessel was christened by Princess Charlene of Monaco in Monte Carlo on the 14th July 2016.  Ironically, Silver Explorer shared the House of Grimadi connection as Prince Albert had named the vessel Prince Albert II in the same location.  This was Seven Seas Explorer's first season in northern Europe.  Ventura and Crown Princess made up the rest of the day time ships.  Queen Victoria was due to replace Seven Seas Explorer in QEII Terminal once the latter sailed but they decided to swap her with Crown Princess.
