THERE was a royal wave in Greenock early this morning as giant cruise ship Regal Princess arrived at Ocean Terminal.

She’s the biggest cruise ship to visit town this year and has the capacity to carry around 4,000 passengers.

The vessel arrived in from Kristiansand in Norway, and is due to leave around 7pm this evening for Belfast as part of a cruise which eventually ends in New York.

Members of the public are reminded that departure times can change at short notice.
