Launched two years ago, the Seabourn Venture is one of the world’s top-of-the range expedition ships. It visited Plymouth last week, where the city laid on its finest red carpet welcome to (mostly American) passengers and its crew. 

Westward Shipping News was the first to capture the luxury mega yacht on our live webcam as it entered the Sound and spent nearly 11 hours in the city on a whistle-stop visit. The 170-metre-long Seabourn Venture is the third cruise visitor of the season, with the Silver Dawn due on Wednesday, May 17th.
