The enormous cruise ship the MS Rotterdam visited Plymouth last year to celebrate the 150th anniversary of the 1872 founding of the shipping line.

The majestic MS Rotterdam is due to visit the city again this year, and Westward Shipping News will record her live in the Sound on our 24 Webcam.

Plymouth is looking forward to a busy summer cruise season of shipping visitors with a dozen ships already lined up to visit the waterfront city.

Last year Plymouth welcomed thousands of cruise tourists and city bosses are hoping for a bumper season this year.
