Oriana (II), Spirit of Discovery & MSC Orchestra in the Channel Islands
I was on Oriana and we arrived in Guernsey on the 20th July 2019, anchoring for an overnight stay.  Saga's brand new ship, Spirit of Discovery was due for 8am but she was early and dropped anchor ahead of us.  She was due to sail at 5pm with us an hour later but she was bloody late and we followed as soon as we'd got her pilot.  She blasted as she sailed and we blew our horn at her, probably because her Captain was Julian Burgess who used to work for P&O.  MSC Orchestra was sailing from Jersey in the far distance and you could just make out her shape.  Later, I popped out on deck and saw Discovery alongside.
