The Italian-built P&O cruise ship ARCADIA (laid down as QUEEN VICTORIA), leaving Lisbon (Santa Apolonia cruise terminal) on 4th October 2006 photographed by Luís Miguel Correia.
The light was not at its best, with clouds, but the sun did show for a few moments, thus the difference in light between the photos.
Since 1975, when I started photographing the passenger shipping scene in Lisbon regularly, this is the third different P&O ARCADIA I have been able to photograph... The first one was the John Brown-built ARCADIA of 1954, a very traditional post-war P&O liner. Later on I did also photograph the French-built ARCADIA ex-STAR PRINCESS, when she replaced the CANBERRA cruising out of Southampton, and now this elegant would be Cunarder.
