Bridge of ferry PRINCESS SEAWAYS

Photo taken on the bridge of DFDS Cruiseferry Princess Seaways (IMO 8502391) as she approached Port of Tyne on the afternoon of 08/12/11. Her overnight passage from Ijmuiden had been hampered by very strong NW winds reducing her normal cruising speed of 21 knots to just 5 knots ! She was due alongside at 9am and eventually berthed at 5pm some 8 hours behind schedule ! The weather was so severe upon departure, that the Pilot was unable to disembark and remained with us all the way back to Newcastle ! The Master kindly invited us onto the bridge.
