SAGA ROSE's Final Cruise Departure - 30 October 2009

 
SAGA ROSE Alongside at Southampton 30 October 2009
Oct 30, 2009

SAGA ROSE alongside berth 101, City Cruise Terminal, Southampton on the day of her Farewell Cruise for Saga Cruises 30 October 2009
SAGA ROSE 24528gt Passenger (Cruise) Ship 1965 Bahamas
She looked wonderful and not a vessel about to end her sailing days as a cruise ship. The sun obliged, making a brief appearance at midday for some lovely photos. It was however still quite chilly & windy.
