Departing Greenock ocean terminal yesterday was Deutschland , as the name would suggest she is a German cruise ship,built in 1994 for Peter Deilmann Cruises.
The ship received a lot of indirect publicity in late July 2000 with the crash of the Concorde supersonic jet liner. All of the passengers on the ill-fated Concorde that crashed just outside Paris were on a Peter Deilmann charter on their way to New York. They had planned to embark on a cruise on the Deutschland.
These photographs are especially for the charming lady I met on Lyle Hill,who was on holiday from Wales.
