Navigator of the Seas, Marina, Silver Explorer Southampton Debut, Norwegian Jade, Aurora, & Silver Whisper
The first gathering of a weekend of multi-ships on the 2nd June 2017.  Silver Explorer was a new caller to Southampton, having usually called in Portsmouth.  In fact, she was listed on their schedule this day.  She debuted in 1989 as Delphin Clipper and underwent several name changes, including World Discoverer in 2002.  This 6,130grt expedition ship carries 144 passengers. Silversea bought her in 2007 and she underwent an extensive refit.  First under them, she was Prince Albert II, christened by Prince Albert II of Monaco.  Three years later she received her current name.  She, like Silver Whisper, would be staying overnight.  Navigator was first of the sextet, docking in her usual City Terminal.  Marina was in QEII Terminal, Jade in Ocean, Aurora in Mayflower with Silver Explorer in 104 and Silver Whisper behind Navigator in 102.
