Smile Ventura Arrives in Southampton (Pics)

Ventura arrived for the first time in Southampton this morning. At first it looked like it was going to be in a snowstorm but the snow did stop and the sun tried its best to break through!

Here are a few pictures:



Ventura passes Aurora on her first visit to Southampton



The traditional fireboat welcome.

Thanks for the photo share.

I still think any ship too large for the current locks of the Panama Canal is too big!!

Default We were down in the Mayflower Park today

The sun came out for Ventura as she started to make her turn to lie portside at the Mayflower.

Lots like us turned up to see. Impressive site. She is very tall.

Thanks for your comments and I'm glad that you like the pictures. I was stood at the end of Town Quay which was a good vantage point... just a bit cold!!

I have put some more pictures of the Ventura up on Flickr. You can see them by clicking here.

You can view the larger images by clicking on the pictures.

Default Ventura Arrives in the UK

Thanks for posting some great photos!

We have actually written a story about Ventura's arrival and used a photo from FireflyUK.
You can see it here: http://www.cruisecritic.co.uk/news/news.cfm?ID=2490

Thanks again!

Love the photos.

We were in Southampton for her arrival and watched her arrive from Mayflower Park. In the afternoon, we took the Harbour Tour from Ocean Village and the sun came out and we got some fantastic close up pictures.

Haven't got a clue how to get my photos onto the forum so I've put them on my Picasa website. Please see http://picasaweb.google.com/gailoswald/Ventura/ with close up views of balconies.
