A third cruise ship has caught the attention of those near the Clyde as it made its way up the river to dock near Govan today. 

The Azamara Journey has joined its sister vessels, the Azamara Pursuit and Azamara Quest, at King George V Dock. 

Crowds gathered along the Clyde walkway west from the dock awaiting the ship, with some ship enthusiasts waiting to see it for more than two hours.

Usually able to board more than 700 passengers, the ship was unusually empty as it approached Glasgow with only essential crew members aboard its decks.

Azamara Pursuit arrived at the dock start of this month this month, whereas Azamara Quest followed on Friday evening. 

All three ships will remain near Glasgow until the cruise industry is allowed to restart following the coronavirus outbreak. 

Glasgow Times:

Shipowner RRCL suspended its entire fleet of passenger liners from March 13. 

The suspension of the cruise journeys was initially set until June 11, but has since been extended to September 15. 

It has been confirmed that the ships underwent a deep clean and spent two weeks at high seas to limit the risks of spreading Covid-19.
