A cruise ship docked in the deep waters off the east coast has been attracting the attention of locals.
The Queen Victoria, a Vista-class cruise ship operated by the Cunard line, is currently at anchor some three miles off Kessingland.
It is reported the vessel arrived on Saturday morning (July 4), having sailed from Southampton.
Mick Howes, who lives in the area, said: “The ship is clearly visible from Lowestoft and Pakefield and is attracting a lot of attention.”
It is the smallest of Cunard’s ships in operation and its facilities include seven restaurants, thirteen bars, three swimming pools, a ballroom, and a theatre.
