Cruise Ship Docks in Cornish Town of Fowey – Biggest Yet!

A cruise ship weighing 60,000 tonnes has visited a tiny Cornish port town, off Fowey in South West Britain. 

The cruise liner is operated by Saga Cruises, a British cruise line which only allows for guests over 50 to sail. She accomodates almost 1000 passengers in boutique cabins and suites, and is 774ft long. It is thought to be the largest ship ever to have docked in the town’s harbour – EVER!

Spirit of Adventure visited on Friday 1 September while on its way from Falmouth to Weymouth, during a ‘Round Great Britain’ cruise. It arrived at 6am and remained at anchor until around 5pm, dividing opinions of those in the town – with some locals saying she was “a beauty”, with others saying “its a monstrosity, it doesn’t belong here”.

Fowey’s town crier said: “At 236m, the Spirit of Adventure is the longest cruise ship to ever dock in the river. It’s also the first one I’ve had the privilege to welcome! Come down and have a look! She’s a beast!”.
