Unknown cruise liner and sailing vessel

A rather evocative, recent new and old ship picture of Argostoli Harbour, POE., Island of Cephalonia, Ionian Sea, Greece. I'm afraid I neither know the name of the Tall nor the Cruise Ship therein.

For those interested: the geographical location of Ormos Argostoli, Port to Stbd., when Stbd., Hand Buoy 38° 11'.2 N 20° 29'.5E being rounded.

Thank you for the contributions.
Captain Waldmeier seems to me to offer the seemingly correct, or sister ship at least, name for her. Since finding Bill's answer to her title I then found her and sure enough her shape is the same her fenestration is precise and the lifeboats and dockside boarding ladder are exactly right with two lifeboats seen to be being utilised as tenders.

Cheers and thanks Capt., Waldmeier
Apologies for the delay.
