I understand that this is not going to be easy, but can anyone have a shot at identifying the ship in this picture, or even the shipping company?  I realise that it is a terrible image, but in my own defence it was taken from a moving ferry, at a distance of several miles, hand-held with a lens equivalent to a 600mm.  It was taken looking north from the ferry from Mull to Iona (Argyll, Scotland) in July, in an area not known for visiting cruise ships.

Hi Frank,

Pretty certain it is a Saga ship.

Possibly this one???

Nice shot all things considered too :o)

Hi Mark

You are right - almost!  Your suggestion was correct, but I could find no reference to where she was on the day I took the photo.  However, I have been able to find out that she was been Quest for Adventure earlier this year, and was visiting Staffa on the day in question.  Thanks.

I think Frank it is Quest for Adventure she was in Southampton last week. Quest for Adventure was painted out and Saga Pearl II painted back on. VTS stated Saga Pearl II left on the Friday 22-11-2013. They were painting the name on all day Thurday. Saw it happening but did not have a camera with me.
