Three cruise ships over three days at the Rio Tinto jetty, Holyhead. Firstly Hapag Lloyds 199 mtr vessel Europa which was all fast alongside at 07:30 on Tuesday the 25th August. Next up on the 26th August at a similar time was the 207 mtr Seven Seas Voyager, although this time slightly stronger winds required the cruise ship to have some assistance from the St David tug for berthing. Finally this morning following the same overnight journey from Dublin as the previous two, Silver Cloud. This 156 mtr cruise ship brings the total visitors to our shores to the near 1500 mark during the past three days.
