A NEW luxury cruise liner has made her arrival in Portsmouth this morning.

Monday, 21st June 2021, 9:48 am

Virgin Voyage’s Scarlet Lady has passed the Round Tower and is docking at Portsmouth International Port.

She will become the biggest ship to ever arrive in the city – as a 110,000-tonne vessel, she dwarfs even HMS Queen Elizabeth.

At 277 metres and with space for 3,000 passengers, Scarlet Lady’s voyage into Portsmouth will mark a milestone moment in the city’s ambition to bounce back following the financial hit of the coronavirus pandemic.
