One of the main attractions on a cruise to Lisbon is the scennic viewing of the city and the river Tagus as seen from aboard the ships on their arrival.
A frequent visitor to Lisbon is SAGA HOLYDAYS' SAGA RUBY, depicted here in several photos taken by L. M. Correia on 4th May 2006.
The SAGA RUBY called Lisbon for the first time on 22nd September 1973 in her original form as Norwegian America Line VISTAFJORD.
After 33 years of continous cruise service she still looks a handsome ship and the present livery is particularly attractive.
From top to bottom: The SAGA RUBY has just embarked the harbour pilot off Algés, sails past the Belém Tower, upriver to pass under the Tagus bridge and dock at the nearby Alcântara cruise terminal
