OCEAN Terminal staff welcomed a royal visitor this morning as cruise ship Queen Victoria docked in Greenock.

She is the first of two Cunard liners to call during the busy 2018 season with sister vessel Queen Elizabeth expected on July 21.

The 90,000-ton ship docked at around 8am, having sailed from Dublin.

It is Queen Victoria's first visit to Greenock in four years.

She is due to leave at 6pm, bound for Kirkwall, although times are subject to change.
