Have your say

STAFF at Portsmouth International Port welcomed a small luxury cruise ship making its first call to the city under her new guise.

Now part of the Noble Caledonian fleet, Serenissima carries passengers on explorer cruises to destinations that bigger vessels are unable to manage.

Known for her bright interior, the veteran cruise ship 
has a country house style influenced by 18th-century Swedish design.

The ship left yesterday Portsmouth at 7pm.
