Last week Ocean Majesty arrived in London. I have in the past seen her pass through Tower Bridge, but on this occasion, I wasn’t around for the Bridge lifts, and merely saw her moored alongside HMS Belfast.

I have to say that she isn’t looking all that majestic at the moment, with a long scuff mark on the forward port side of her hull, and what looks like a really bad panel beating job at her stern!

I was walking along the north side Thames Path while I was photographing Ocean Majesty. In the picture above, the tower at Guy’s Hospital and some of the More London buildings are visible, while in the next picture, More London and City Hall are in the background.

Now let’s step back four years; and here she is passing through Tower Bridge in 2005, when I was lucky enough to be viewing from the top of City Hall, but when the weather wasn’t quite as good as it was last week.
