Event Description


 All 7 P&O Cruises ships will assemble in Southampton, their home
port on 3rd July 2012 for the first time. 

The flotilla will proceed from the berths in
Southampton to the Nab tower @ Calshot during the early evening between 6.00pm and 9.00pm.

The Red Arrows will perform a display over the Solent off Calshot at 7.20pm.

The Princess Royal will review the fleet from Charlie
Anchorage between 8.00pm and 8.30pm with a Royal Navy warship, HMS Dragon accompanying from astern.

During the day, the seven ships will be
berthed in both the Eastern and Western Docks in the city:

The ships are as follows:



If you would like to see the ships as they sail out, there is a map in
pdf format available for download at the end of this page. It shows the
approximate timings of the procession and potential vantage points. (Please note
that timings are subject to change). This map and further information can also
be viewed on the P&O web site.

Please note that it will not be
possible to see all seven ships sail from Mayflower Park. The only ships
viewable from here will be the ones which were berthed in the Western Docks.

Hope to see you there.

Hi Steve,

I did manage a trip to Southampton earlier - in part to drop my Mum off as above!!

Managed some shots and the ships all looked very impressive. I should have pre booked a boat tour! Ho Hum! Also just got back from Hill Head. Not the best vantage point but the traffic was so chaotic I didn't even try to fight my way through it. Attached is the best I could do this evening so not worthy of a normal upload. I imagine it was better on your side of the water if you braved the rubbish weather!Big shame about the reds again too - 3 out of 3 now!!
