On Saturday the 16th July, an amazing SIX cruise ships will be docking at Southampton for the day. This is only the second time in 50 years* that six ships will be berthed all at once, and will be a "dress rehearsal" for next year when the entire seven-ship fleet of P&O Cruises arrives in one day to celebrate their 175th Anniversary on 3rd July.
The six ships in port on Saturday are:-
An estimated 65,000 passengers and crew will be disembarking and embarking the ships - lets hope everyone gets on the right ship!
