Cruise Ship Boudicca visits Loch Fyne

Boudicca, the cruise ship went up Loch Fyne this morning and turned just short of Dunderave Castle.
She did not linger at Inveraray of course, as there is no landing with the pier shut up.
According to the marinetraffic website she passed back down by Strachur at 1045hrs doing 16.7knots, heading for Tarbert.
Passengers would be put ashore in tenders at Tarbert.



Some interesting facts:
Boudicca was built in Helsinki in 1973, and re-fitted in 2011.
She now operates for Fred Olsen Lines, and is just small enough to turn in upper Loch Fyne!
She is 206m in length (670ft) and has a beam of 25m (81ft)
Gross registered tonneage is 28,388
Maximum speed is about 18.5 knots (20mph)
